This is a Town NPC. A House may be required in order for it to appear.

The Bandit is an NPC vendor that provides a plethora of weapons and accessories that tailor to the Rogue class.

The Bandit will move into an available NPC house if the following conditions have been met:

  • There is an empty house.
  • Skeletron has been defeated.
  • The player has at least 1 Platinum Coin in their inventory or personal storage items (such as the Piggy Bank). (This condition will not be required if the Bandit has moved in before on that world)

When threatened by enemies, she will defend herself with the Cinquedea.

When the player selects the Bandit's "Refund" option after reforging at the Goblin Tinkerer any number of times, the Bandit will return 1/5 of the money spent on those reforges. The Bandit can only return the money spent on reforges, and only in that world. The Bandit has three unique quotes when using this option.

When refunding:

  • "Want in on a little secret? Since [Name of Goblin Tinkerer] always gets so much cash from you, I’ve been stealing some of it as we go. I need you to keep quiet about it, so here."
  • "Hey, if government officials can get tax, why can’t I? The heck do you mean that these two things are nothing alike?"

If no refund is available:

  • "Sorry, I got nothing. Perhaps you could reforge something and come back later..."
