In Terraria, what are the conditions to spawn a Goblin Army, and what time does it spawn?



  • I'm trying to get a Goblin army to spawn. Thus far I have:

    • Destroyed 1 Shadow Orb
    • Have at least 200 HP currently
    • and have not seen an invasion yet this game.

    At what time does the Goblin Army usually spawn? When I say time, I mean what time in the night (i.e. 12am, 1am, 2am, etc...). Am I missing any pre-requisites to getting the army to spawn?



  • Goblin Invasions are besides the requirements randomly triggered, you could wait for a long time.

    The requirements are pretty much as you already state:

    • One player in the game must have 200+ current life.
    • There must not have been an invasion within 7 in-game days.
    • At least 1 Shadow Orb must have been destroyed.

    Further the wiki links to a forum discussion that states:

    It triggers at the very start of day.

    I would love to include his C# converted source code in here as well, but the formatting goes bananas


    Also as Yves wrote, you could also farm the Scouts to make a Goblin Battle Standard

    Using 10 Tattered Cloth, dropped by Goblin Scouts and 5 Wood, at a Loom.
