The Mage Hand is a tool that is dropped by the Illusionist; it can also be purchased from the Wizard after defeating the Illusionist. It summons a Mage Hand at the cursor's location that can pick up a single enemy, NPC or multiple items around itself, as long as the player holds the attack button and the hand is within a certain range from the player, which is represented by a semi-transparent circle around the player's position. The hand can go through blocks and emits a small amount of light.
- When using the Mage Hand it is best to move your cursor slowly as enemies or NPCs being dragged will easily slip out of your grasp.
- The light the Mage Hand produces is more vibrant and pronounced when in your range & more dim when out of your range, this can be seen more clearly as the mage hand is faded out slightly when out of your reach.
- The Mage Hand can interact with the environment by harvesting foliage, breaking pots, and destroying Larva.
- This item has no effect on Boss entities.
- In multiplayer, the Mage Hand has a maximum speed at which it follows your cursor; this is to prevent desync caused by flinging enemies around.
- The item is based off a spell of the same name from the tabletop role-playing game Dungeons & Dragons.
