Rainbow Rod's Projectile

The Rainbow Rod is a Hardmode magic weapon that launches a mouse-controllable projectile, similar to the Flamelash or Magic Missile. The projectile is white, and emits a good deal of light that rotates through the entire color spectrum. Unlike the Flamelash, the Rainbow Rod's projectile can move through Water without dissipating, as well as Lava. It can be controlled for up to one minute before dissipating.

Its best Modifier is Mythical.

  • Hovering over any slots in the inventory (should it be open) will cause the loss of control of any controlled projectile, flinging it forwards in the direction the cursor was last moving.
