Not to be confused with Boss/Event summoning items.

Various Summoning-related items have been added to increase the variety of summonable damage sources, and expand on the Summoner class in Terraria greatly. 11 new accessories and 6 armor types have been added to supplement a Summoner's arsenal and a new subcategory of items, Summoner Banners, provide boons to the player or their minions or sentries within proximity.

There are currently 13 Pre-Hardmode and 21 Hardmode minions, 21 sentry-type summons, 5 other weapons that deal Summon damage, and 8 summoner banners.
