The Crystal Serpent is a Hardmode magic weapon that has a 0.5% (1 in 200) chance to be obtained by fishing in The Hallow in any layer. It fires a magical pink projectile that shatters into three to five smaller sparks upon impact with an enemy or solid block, each of which deals anywhere from half to equal damage to the initial blast (20–40). These sparks are affected by gravity and ricochet against solid blocks, lasting one second before disappearing. When fired at a one-block-thick wall, one of the splash projectiles has a chance of passing through to the other side.
Its best modifier is Mythical.
Tips[edit | edit source]
- As the Crystal Serpent is acquired by fishing and has no other prerequisites to appear, it can be obtained at the beginning of Hardmode with little effort.
- Due its area-of-effect damage, it is effective against crowds and large, slow enemies and bosses.
