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

The Cobbler is an NPC vendor that will spawn once the following conditions have been met:

  • There is an empty house.
  • A player in the world has any type of non-Cobbler boot accessory in their inventory or equipped.

When threatened by enemies, he will defend himself by using a Nail Gun with craftman's nails.

Shine Shoes[edit | edit source]

The Cobbler can also shine your shoes for free when you select the "Shine Shoes" in the dialogue window. The Shined Shoes buff increases your movement speed by 10%, run acceleration by 8% and jump height by 1 block. This effect stacks with other movement speed increasing effects. The buff also causes light to emit from the character in very small but bright twinkles originating from the feet. Although the light emitted is bright, it is not sufficient to explore dark caves or the surface at night.

The buff lasts for 5 minutes, but can be canceled at any time by right-clicking the icon.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The following boot accessories are considered valid for the Cobbler to move in:
    • The Cobbler sells boot accessories of varying effects. As you progress in defeating bosses, more and more boots will become available for purchase.
    • When selecting the "Shine Shoes" in the dialogue window with the buff on, the Cobbler will not "re-shine" your shoes. Thus, to refresh the buff, you have to cancel it manually first.

    Quotes[edit | edit source]

    • "In my younger years, I myself was a hero. My allies and I faced a trio of entities I shudder to remember. We lost someone special that day... Ah, but worry not friend, we were able to seal them away. Only the defeat of something cataclysmic could possibly bring them back!"
    • "Worry not young hero. While the journey may be tough, I have full confidence in your ability!"
    • "You can learn a lot by walking a mile in someone else's boots. If only some of these townsfolk would walk a mile in yours, then they could understand..."
    • "How are you doing young one? Are you staying safe out there in the wilds?"
    • "That poor girl, [Name of Dryad], needs to wear some more clothes!" (Only if Dryad is present)
    • I wish [Name of Arms Dealer] would make some better decisions. You only have one life!" (Only if Arms Dealer is present)
    • "Ah, so [Name of Guide] has been giving you advise this whole time...? I wonder if he still hasn't forgiven himself for what happened.." (Only if Guide is present)

    When receiving the Shined Shoes buff:

    • "There we go, good as new! Make sure to stay safe out there, hero."

    When attempting to receive the buff again while it has not expired:

    • "I'm afraid I can't make them anymore shiny than they already are... Come back later when you get a little dirt on them!."
