Ghostly Goblins are hostile ranged mobs that spawn naturally in the Overworld during the Soul Scurry event.


Ghostly Goblins spawn naturally in all biomes in the Overworld.

They will only spawn during Soul Scurry events, and like most other mobs; their spawning can be prevented by placing torches or other lighting blocks nearby to raise the light level above 7.


Ghostly Goblins are ranged mobs that will follow targets both on land and in water. Like most ranged mobs, they will try quite hard to avoid getting into water, but will do so if necessary. When attacking a target, they will either stand still or slowly follow at a distance while firing projectiles.

They are aggressive, and will attack nearby players within 24 blocks without provocation. If attacked by another entity, they will retaliate and continue targeting that entity.

Staying outside of their targeting range will prevent them from attacking or targeting entities.

Unique Abilities[]

When a Ghostly Goblin successfully attacks a player, it will drain 12 Soul Power from the player.


Ghostly Goblins are classified as undead creatures, and as such the effects of Smite will apply to them.
