The Guide is an NPC that is usually the first NPC who will move into the player's house. He will assist the player throughout the game and will give hints what to do when certain stages of the game are reached.


The guide has the same requirements as other NPCs to spawn-

  • A house which is Completely Walled, is at least 6 blocks high, and 10 blocks wide of space in its interior.
  • A light source (A furnace will suffice)
  • A table & chair
  • A door


  • The guide is the first NPC to appear in the game.
  • The guide will continue to help the player, even when advanced, and is helpful even in Hardmode.
