Wraiths are Hardmode ghost-like enemies who can travel through blocks and can inflict the Slow debuff on the player. They have black bodies, which render them almost completely invisible in dark areas, but have two glowing red eyes which are visible from within the darkness. They spawn at the surface layer at night.

Although Wraiths appear to fly freely, they can only hover slightly above the ground. They need foreground blocks to "swim" through in order to fly any higher.

Notes[]

Tips[]

  • Wraiths can be attacked through walls with melee weapons or any other weapon whose attack animation does not end when it hits a wall. This makes spears especially effective.
  • Any structure built at least six tiles above the surface will prevent a Wraith from levitating up and into it.
  • Breaking altars is an efficient method to get Wraith Banners and the Fast Clock without using the Wraith Statue.
  • If the player is in or slightly above the Ocean, a Wraith can spawn below and to the sides of the player. The Wraith can then float towards and attack the player.

Trivia[]

  • The BestiaryBestiary entry for the Wraith: "Souls belonging to the darkest of hearts were once sealed in the world's core. Now, they roam the night to add to their kind."

History[]

  • Desktop 1.2:
    • Health, damage and defense decreased from 200, 75, and 18 to 160, 65, and 16, respectively.
