What happens if I kill a lost NPC before talking to them? will they respawn? where? : Terraria

If an NPC is killed, they will respawn after a delay, as long as a suitable vacant house is still available. If the NPC has an inventory or population requirement for their initial spawn (e.g. the 50 silver for the Merchant), that has to be met again for the respawn.

According to the wiki here:

In episode 21 of Red & Blues preview of Terraria (at about 2:45), they suffer a zombie attack in which several of their NPCs die. In later episodes, however, the NPCs have returned.

Yes, NPCs can die, but not permanently. If an NPC dies, then the game just acts as if the NPC had never been in the house in the first place. For example, if your Guide dies, another Guide may move into a house. This is the same for all NPCs, except an NPC having previously moved in does not automatically fulfill the criteria for them to move in again. For example, if a Merchant dies, they will be able to move in once the “50 silver” criteria has been met again.

The Wizard NPC Died

Ok guys, so I have a question. I was playing Terraria with my friend, and then he starts yelling saying, WE FINALLY FOUND THE WIZARD! But when I got there, the Wizard got killed by an Angry Bones after being Unbounded or what ever. So since we untied him, but he died, will he spawn regularly like a Merchant when there is an open house, or will we have to search another Dungeon to find him again? (edited by DubstepWhale)
