The Goblin Battle Standard is a consumable item that allows you to manually summon a Goblin Army, which is useful for farming Spiky Balls, as well as acquiring Harpoons.

When the item is used, the message A Goblin Army Is Approaching From The West/East! will appear at the bottom left of the screen and repeat a few times before the army arrives. Terraria_Battle_Standard_Summon_The_Goblin_Army


  • Using a Goblin Battle Standard before meeting the requirement of 200 Health Points or while a Goblin Army is already attacking will use up the item and do nothing. Therefore, do not even carry one when the mentioned conditions are in place, or else the item may be accidentally used.
  • Goblin Tinkerer indirectly refers to this item in one of his quotes, in which he claims that most goblins can start a war over a piece of cloth.
