Djinn's Curse is a Hardmode armor item that can be equipped in the "pants" slot. It visually replaces the player's feet with a genie-like effect, similar to the Desert Spirit's appearance. When equipped in the functional "pants" armor slot, it also provides a slow-fall effect which is exactly identical to the buff of the Featherfall Potion[1], but provides no defense. Djinn's Curse has a 13/400 (3.25%) chance of being dropped by Desert Spirits.

  • Djinn, jinn, or genies are creatures from Arabian mythology that were the basis of stories about genies who grant wishes. As many genie stories involve the granting of a selfish wish at some horrible unforeseen expense, Djinn's Curse refers to the player being granted the ability to float, at the expense of having to sacrifice their feet (and potentially, defense from armor pieces), which is reflected in the tooltip.
  • Djinn's Curse is one of the three armor items which do not grant any defense. The other two are the Amethyst Robe and the Wood Greaves.
  • Prior to, Djinn's Curse did not appear on Mannequins like it did on players due to programming limitations; instead, it was shown as a pair of purple pants.


  • Desktop 1.4.4: Now classified as an armor item instead of vanity.
