    I think it would be cool if NPC'S will use their brain when they get hit by an enemy, for example:
    _
    Enemy hits arms dealer: he starts shooting at it with a flintlock pistol
    Enemy hits demolitionist: he starts throwing grenades at it (at a slow speed)
    Enemy hits wizard: he starts casting waterbolts at it
    _
    I'm not sure what the rest of the NPCS would do. Maybe the mechanic would swing her wrench at the enemy?

    This would be awesome. I always hated it how the arms dealer would run away when hit. even though he has a infinite amount of minisharks and bullets.
    Other ideas

    Guide:Iron broadsword
    Merchant:Iron short sword
    Goblin tinkerer: Uses spiky balls.
    Dryad: Throws dirt (Lol)
    Nurse:would run away And heal Injured NPCS
    Clothier:Turns into skeletron (Just kidding)

    Mechanic runs to Goblin Tinkerer for protection.
    Guide opens door for other enemies.
    Dryad instantly transforms into a sapling.

    Guide:Runs at you,and start an annoying dialogue,saying that monsters are attacking your base,and does not let you do anything else until you not close the conversation,or dies.

    They could at least learn to stay inside when the world is full of goblins.

    Actually, what if the Clothier used whatever weapon you used to kill Skeletron with your final hit?

    What if you kill Skeletron with an overpowered weapon then?

    What if you kill it with an Unreal Megashark? Then the Clothier would be your sidekick against Skeletron Prime

    Yes! Yes! Please do this! I've thought the same thing at least about the gun dealer. Here he is, armed to the teeth, and he moseys away harmlessly when he gets hit by enemies. He even tells you not to "touch his gun". Why not touch his gun? He obviously doesn't use it!

    Yeah, I've always thought of this before. Demoguy gets hit by ZOMBIE, he runs away in fear, while having an unlimited stock of grenades.

    That one hit kills the zombie.
