An undead dream demon obsessed with the practice and perfection of so-called 'blood corruption.' For this practice, he only reveals himself when the moon shimmers sanguine.

The Occultist is an Pre-Hardmode mini boss that appears during a Blood Moon. It deals no contact damage, and upon death, 4 Dreamstride Wisps are released, each dropping a single Dreamstride Essence when killed. After the mini boss has been defeated, Dreamstride Wisps start naturally spawning during Blood Moons.

The quest "Spectral Scourge" requires the player to defeat one Occultist.


The Occultist spawns naturally during a Blood Moon and cannot be summoned manually using in-game items.


The Occultist behaves similarly to Caster enemies, firing one attack, then teleporting to a different spot near the player. Each attack is randomly selected, though the same attack cannot occur twice in a row.

  • Spawns 2 Lost Soul.png Lost Souls behind itself. Starting out by circling slowly, after 2.67 seconds they pick up a lot of speed and head straight towards to player, homing in slightly. In total, they last for 5 seconds, often well into the Occultist's next attack.
  • Sends 5 Dark Grasp.png Dark Grasp projectiles flying horizontally towards the player. These projectiles move quite fast, last for 3 seconds, and can travel through blocks for the first second.
  • Spawns 6 Sacrificial Dagger (projectile).png Sacrificial Daggers above its head in an arc from roughly horizontal to roughly straight downwards, then all of them fly out quickly at the same time.
  • Summons a File:Brutish Slam.png Brute, who slams their hammer into the ground to create a line of 11 Brutish Shockwave.png Shockwave effects over the space of 63 blocks, each consecutive one appearing farther from the Occultist.


    • Now drops a Master Mode Relic and pet item.
    • Now drops Blood Moon Aurora Monolith and Bloody Tear.
  • 1.4.3:
    • Resprited and reworked.
