The Hornet Staff is a summon weapon. It spawns a hornet character that follows the player and attacks enemies via a ranged stinger attack, similar to the Hornet enemy's attack. The stingers inflict the Poisoned debuff for 4-7 seconds. Like other minions, summoned hornets are invincible and follow the player for an unlimited amount of time, unless the player dies, summons a replacement minion, or cancels the buff.
Its best modifier is Ruthless. The Mythical modifier provides the widest array of stat bonuses, but these primarily affect the initial summon rather than the resulting minion. Additionally, minions cannot deal critical hits. The only lasting advantage a Mythical Hornet Staff has over a Ruthless one is knockback.
