Terraria – All Town Slimes Guide

How to get all 8 town slimes for the achievement.

Guide to Get All Eight Town Slimes

Elder Slime

Found underground in the cavern layer, and more commonly in the dungeon, and is locked in a regular chest. You will need a golden key to unlock the chest. The chest moves around like a slime, so it is easy to notice. The Elder Slime will not spawn unless Skeletron has been defeated. The lifeform analyzer will show it as an Old Shaking Chest. The chest will despawn if you go far enough away, so make sure to bring a golden key!

Cool Slime

Arrives like any other NPC when a natural party is happening. He will not arrive if you use a party center.

Nerdy Slime

Spawns after defeating King Slime.

Squire Slime

Craft a copper helmet, and drop the helmet to any basic slime. The slime will transform into the town slime. Using the Royal Gel helps to not accidentally kill the slime.

Mystic Slime

While anywhere in the jungle, a mystic frog can spawn. Using purification powder on it will turn it into the town slime. You can kill it, so use the Guide To Critter Companionship item, and don’t use summons. Also, it helps to be near a town so monsters do not spawn. The mystic frog does appear on the Lifeform Analyzer, which helps. It seems to spawn more commonly on the surface, but it can still spawn underground.

Surly Slime

During a blood moon, you can fish up this town slime anywhere.

Clumsy Slime

Can be found randomly during a windy day flying on a balloon. Unlike other balloon slimes, you need to be in the Space Layer for it to spawn. Floating islands can be a good place to wait until one shows up. The Clumsy Slime can fly away and despawn.

Diva Slime

Throwing Sparkle Slime Balloon from Queen Slime into shimmer will spawn the last town slime.

  1. did both, then tried it with deeper and got it. maybe it was just more than 2 or something, but my point is that the more shimmer the better

  2. how rare are the mystic frogs??? i’ve been looking on 10x spawn rate for a while
    is it locked behind a boss or something

    • They are pretty rare, and according to the wiki is a 1/50 or 2% chance of spawning. They aren’t locked behind a boss.

  3. have just read this and thx so much i love slimes more than anything in the world so this part LOL update was heven i would of been so sad not knowing how to get them thx so much

  4. Any ingame hints how to get squire and mystic slimes? Both of them are very unobvious if they don’t get some sort of entry in the mob-pedia.
