The Spectre Staff's homing projectiles in action.

The Spectre Staff is a Hardmode, post-Plantera magic weapon that fires a fast-moving white "lost soul" projectile which homes in on the nearest enemy. The projectile looks similar to the one fired by the Ragged Caster, but cannot travel through blocks. It has a 5*1/20 (5%) / 7.38*59/800 (7.38%) chance to drop from Ragged Casters found in the post-Plantera Dungeon.

Like all weapons with homing projectiles, the Spectre Staff's projectiles do not home in on other players in PvP.

Desktop and Mobile versions In addition, as of the update, it was made to have three additional pierces.

Its best modifier is Mythical.
