The Shadowbeam Staff is a post-Plantera magic weapon that is similar to the Necromancer's standard attack, creating a purple beam that travels instantaneously to its maximum distance (approximately 108 tiles), bounces off blocks, is unaffected by gravity, and emits a moderate amount of light for its entire length. It is a rare drop (3.33% or 1/30 chance) from Necromancers in the Dungeon after entering Hardmode and defeating Plantera.
The Shadowbeam Staff can travel far and pierce unlimited enemies, but can only strike each enemy once per firing.
Additionally, with repeated firings, the Staff suffers a unique temporary drop in damage each time a firing results in enemy hits.
The Shadowbeam Staff's best Modifier is Mythical.
- Useful for quick exploration - the beam emits a large amount of light and tends bounce around corners and illuminate entire rooms.
- Very effective in the dungeon.
