Core Keeper NPC Guide: All NPCs, Sold Items, & How to Unlock Them

Posted on by justin
Core Keeper NPCs offer items to players to help them progress. But these non-playable characters don’t give their wares for free. Nonetheless, buying these items brings about fast item acquisition, reducing farming times.

Core Keeper NPC Guide

Core Keeper NPCs Players can find and interact with four NPCs in Core Keeper (at the time of writing). But you must complete certain requirements before you can summon these characters. Plus, each NPC has a unique summoning item to make them appear in your base or camp.

General Requirements

Before an NPC appears, Core Keeper players must complete the following pre-requisites:
  • A room with a maximum of 8x8 square tiles exists
  • At least one tile is free of torches or pieces of furniture
  • The room has a bed and a door
Unlike Terraria, you don’t need lighting in the room to spawn NPCs. Also, the floor and walls can be of any material except the existing dirt.

All NPCs in Core Keeper

Note that each item sold by an NPC has limited stock. Players must wait 30 to 45 minutes before an NPC can restock the items they sell. Plus, new players should defeat at least Glurch the Abominous Mass before summoning their first NPC.

Bearded Merchant Defeat Glurch the Abominous Mass Place the Slime Oil item in an available house Curious Egg Scrap Parts Fiber Copper Ore Tin Ore Iron Ore Gold Ore Larva Meat Shiny Larva Meat

Seasonal Merchant Place the Seasonal Calendar item in an available house Anniversary Cake Blue Party Hat Easter Workbench Festive Workbench Gingerbread House Chest Green Party Hat Happy Birthday To You Large Golden Egg Little Helperling Purple Party Hat Red Party Hat Valentine Crafting Table Valentine’s Chest Valentine Gift
It’s important to mention that all NPCs except the Seasonal Merchant require Ancient Coins as payment for their sold items. The Seasonal Merchant, on the other hand, is like a crafting table wherein you must give this NPC specific items in exchange for other in-game objects. Note: NPCs can die, but it can take a while because each character has a ridiculous amount of health. But if an NPC dies, the character will drop items, and some of which might not be a part of their sold wares.
