The Raven Staff in use.

The Raven Staff is a Hardmode, post-Plantera summon weapon. It spawns a raven minion that chases enemies and deals contact damage. Like other minions, the summoned raven is invincible and follows the player for an unlimited amount of time, unless the player dies, summons a replacement minion, or cancels the buff. It is dropped from Pumpking during the Pumpkin Moon event (drop chance scales depending on what wave you're on: starts at 1.79%, reaches 14.29%).

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 Raven Staff has over a Ruthless one is knockback.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The Ravens attack notably quickly. As they are also able to fly, this makes them potent melee minions.
  • Ravens physically pierce through multiple enemies, but do not deal piercing damage.

History[edit | edit source]

  • Console 1.07:
    • Summon damage increased from 34 to 37.
    • Now requires 10 mana.
