The Poison Staff is a Hardmode magic weapon that auto-fires a roughly 30-degree spread of 4 "poison fangs" that pierce multiple enemies and inflict the Poisoned debuff. It is dropped by Black Recluses, that are found in or around Spider Nests with a 2.5% drop rate.
Its best Modifier is Mythical.

Tips[edit | edit source]
