The Spectre Staff is a post-Plantera Hardmode magic weapon that fires a fast-moving white "lost soul" projectile that homes in on the nearest enemy. The projectile looks like the one fired by the Ragged Caster, but cannot travel through blocks. The Spectre Staff is a rare drop from Ragged Casters in Dungeons with a Slabbed Dungeon Brick Wall type, after Plantera has been defeated.

Like all homing projectiles, the Spectre Staff does not home in on other players in PvP.

Its best Modifier is Mythical.


Bug.png Bug : On the console, it can harm other players, even when no players have enabled PvP. (tested on Xbox 360)
Bug.png Bug : It can sometimes cause immense lag on servers if fired up and to the left while around multiple mobs.
Bug.png Bug : It can fire through any diagonal-shaped block.
Anomaly.png Anomaly: While the projectiles are clearly visible in darkness, they do not seem to emit light.
