And what does she do? Don't worry; we've got all the answers in our how to get the Princess in Terraria guide!

How to discover the Princess?

When getting NPC's for your humble abodes, some have certain requirements that won't arrive until they have been completed. Her Highness, the Royal Princess, is one of them; however, her requirements aren't that hard to accomplish overall. If you are a newcomer or starting a new world afresh, it'll be a very long time until the Princess will come knocking on your door! The requirements for the Princess are:

  • There is an empty house.
  • All other NPCs are present. This does not include Santa Claus and town pets.

What does she do?

The Princess, oddly enough, is a merchant! You can buy an array of aesthetic-themed goods from her, but the most important thing of all is you can buy her clothes! This means you can prance around the world, destroying bosses, exploring the world while dressed up as a Royal Princess! Hell yeah!

Here is a list of all the items you can purchase from her ladyship:

  • Royal Tiara - 50 Gold
  • Royal Blouse - 50 Gold
  • Royal Dress - 50 Gold
  • Royal Scepter - 1 Silver
  • Glass Slipper - 1 Silver
  • Prince Uniform - 50 Gold
  • Prince Pants - 50 Gold
  • Prince Cape - 50 Gold
  • Potted Crystal Fern - 10 Gold
  • Potted Crystal Spiral - 10 Gold
  • Potted Crystal Teardrop - 10 Gold
  • Potted Crystal Tree - 10 Gold
  • Princess 64 - 10 Gold
  • Painting of a Lass - 10 Gold
  • Dark Side of the Hallow - 10 Gold
  • Music Box (Journey's End) - 10 Gold- Only available after the Moon Lord has been defeated and when the world is in Hardmode

The prices are the default prices of when you first meet the Princess. Depending on her happiness, these prices will fluctuate. The happier she is, the cheaper they'll be, and the unhappier she is, the more expensive.

Living Preferences

The Princess is incredibly unique, as far as NPC's go, as she does not have any preferences on where to wants to live or who she wants to live near. She likes all the biomes and likes every NPC available, so no bad modifiers occur for being overcrowded. However, she despises being alone; if she's not living within 120 tiles of at least 2 other NPC's then her unhappiness is maxed out to 150%!

Hey, my name is Mark, and I'm a video game enthusiast! My earliest memory was playing Worms on the Amiga against my Godmother, yes the Amiga, massive box type thing, needed eighty-five thousand floppy disks to play one game, maybe a slight exaggeration. Ah, those were the days! I love RPG’s, and The Legend of Zelda series. Dogs are pretty awesome.
