The Shadowflame Hex Doll in use.

The Shadowflame Hex Doll is a Hardmode magic weapon that fires curving purple projectiles at decent range, which inflicts the Shadowflame debuff with the same purple flame effects. Using it a single time will fire 3 projectiles at once, but the weapon can be quickly used to make up to 9 projectiles at once. It has a 16.7% / 33.3% / 33.3% (1/6 / 1/3 / 1/3) chance to drop from Goblin Summoner during a Hardmode Goblin Invasion.

Its best modifier is Mythical.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Randomly, the Shadowflame tentacle will appear to bounce off a solid surface. This appears to happen most often when the tentacle was already going to be bending in a direction away from or parallel to the surface to start with. (The tentacles can technically bounce, but this happens very rarely; this can be seen most easily by shooting the weapon straight at a wall or by using mods to spawn tentacles that cannot curve.)
  • The tentacles are slowed by water and will not travel as far if used underwater or in any other liquid.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Because of the random deviation of the tentacles as they travel further away, it is less effective at its maximum range against smaller targets.
  • It could also be useful for segmented enemies and bosses because it hits a lot of segments with how much it pierces.
    • The Shadowflame Hex Doll is also an effective method of destroying Plantera's tentacles due to its pierce.
  • This weapon can prove to be extremely useful if acquired in early Hardmode, especially in tight caverns.
