"The desert winds stir..."

The Desert Djinn is a Pre-Hardmode boss fought in the Desert Biome.

Spawn[edit | edit source]

The Desert Djinn doesn't spawn on his own, and requires the player to summon him using the Desert Lamp while in the Desert.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

The Desert Djinn's AI is similar to that that of a Sand Elemental, but with several differences.

  • At the start of the fight, he summons a sandstorm that lasts for the entirety of the fight.
  • The Desert Djinn slowly follows the Player while periodically spawning three Sand Tornadoes.
  • He will spin his arm around and dash at the Player.
  • He will attempt to get close to the Player while performing rapid punches.

When outside the Desert, Desert Djinn enters an enraged state, executing a series of rapid punches that instantly kill the player if close. If entered back, he turns to normal.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Anything that can help you jump or fly over the Sand Tornadoes, like bottle accessories or rocket boots, will help with dodging.
  • Accessories that reduce knockback help, because if you get knocked out of the desert, or just exit it by accident, the Desert Djinn will enrage.
    • Also, in the event where going through a Sand Tornado is the only realistic option during the fight, knockback reduction/resistance will tremendously help with those situations.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Desert Djinn's theme is The Dust Bowl, which was composed by the artist Universe, and is a remaster of Sand Smackdown.
  • The Desert Djinn is a reference to the popular anime JoJo's Bizzare Adventure.
  • The Desert Djinn is getting removed in the next update.
