The Imp Staff is a summon weapon that spawns a miniature flying imp character that follows the player and fires three fireballs at enemies. Fireballs always inflict the On Fire! debuff, and can pierce multiple enemies. Like other minions, the summoned imp is invincible and follows 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 stats bonuses, but these primarily affect the initial summon rather than the resulting minion. Additionally, Minions cannot deal Critical hits. The only significant advantage a Mythical Imp Staff has over a Ruthless one is knockback.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • While the imp can fly through water, its fireball projectiles cannot travel through water. They stop at the water's surface, and will not appear at all when the imp is within water. The imp will still attempt to fire at underwater enemies.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Compared to the Hornet Staff, the Imp's overall fire rate is low, but its attacks are more damaging, its inflicted debuff is stronger, and its projectiles travel at much higher velocity, in addition to having a pierce ability. The Imp cannot attack underwater enemies though, while the Hornet can.

History[edit | edit source]

  • Desktop 1.2.4: Introduced. Doesn't require any mana when summoning.
