Djinn's Curse is a Hardmode vanity item that can be equipped in the "pants" slot. It visually replaces the player's feet with a genie-like effect, similar to the Desert Spirit's appearance. It has a 3.33*1/30 (3.33%) chance of dropping from Desert Spirits. However, the Desert Spirit will only drop one of its special drops at a time (i.e. it may drop either the Desert Spirit Lamp or the Djinn's Curse, but never both).[1]

When equipped in the functional "pants" armor slot, it provides a slow fall effect similar to Featherfall Potion, but provides no defense.



  • Djinn, jinn, or genies are creatures from Arabian mythology that were the basis of stories about genies who grant wishes. As many genie stories involve the granting of a selfish wish at some horrible unforeseen expense, Djinn's Curse refers to the player being granted the ability to float, at the expense of having to sacrifice their feet (and potentially, defense from armor pieces), which is reflected in the tooltip.
  • The Djinn's Curse is labeled in-game as a "vanity item", despite having a functional effect when worn in the main armor slot.
