Missile fired by the Magic Missile.

The Magic Missile is a magic weapon that has a chance to be found in the Dungeon's locked Gold Chests. It can also be found in the Golden Lock Boxes found in Dungeon Crates. It fires a projectile that can be controlled by holding the Use / Attack button and moving the cursor. If the Use / Attack button is released mid-drag, the missile will be flung in that direction. If the cursor is stationary on release, it continues along the angle formed from the player. The projectile also emits a good deal of light.

Its best Modifier is Mythical.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The mana cost is for the initial casting only. Maintaining and directing the missile does not cost additional mana, and you will regenerate mana while controlling it.
  • The Magic Missile can fire through water (unlike the Flamelash, a similar guidable weapon).
  • After being launched, the projectiles move much slower, going from moving faster than a minecart to around 62 mph.
  • The projectiles of the Magic Missile can be controlled through gaps of one block wide.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The missile emits light and can be remotely directed wherever there is continuous empty space, making it a good cave-scouting tool.
  • The projectile causes an explosion that can damage enemies through a one-block thick wall.
  • Can prove very useful when combined with the Binoculars, increasing the range which you can guide the missile.
