NPC Happiness in Terraria

There are a few different factors that go into determining your NPC’s happiness levels. This is primarily affected by the following factors:

  • Size of the NPCs house, and if they have a house at all
  • Amount of NPCs living adjacent to them
  • Presence of other NPCs in the same town
  • Biome of the NPCs house

NPCs with high happiness levels will sell items to you for cheaper. They also can sell their biome specific Pylons as well. Pylons are very useful if you want to quickly travel around the world to different biomes.

Each NPC also has a preferred biome, which we cover in our Terraria NPC Happiness Biome guide. Some examples are, The Guide likes to live in the Forest, and likes the Clothier and Zoologist. He dislikes Steampunker and hates Painter.

You can use this information, which is provided in the Beastiary, to properly layout your towns so all of your NPCs are as happy as they can be. I hope this brief guide helps you better understand NPC Happiness in Terraria!

You might find our Terraria Journey’s End NPC List and Preferences guide useful as well. This provides a list of every NPC in the game along with their biome and NPC preferences.
