The Spirit Flame is a Hardmode magic weapon. When used, small purple flames will appear and hover around the player in midair. When an enemy comes within range (about 25 tiles), they chase the enemy. Each flame will cause a very small explosion, dealing splash damage. Five flames can be on the screen at the same time, and once a sixth flame is summoned, the first will disappear. The flames dissipate if no target is acquired within three seconds of casting.
The purple flames and the explosions they make is very similar to Desert Spirit's projectiles, which is what this weapon is based on.
Its best Modifier is Mythical.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- Despite this weapon's high damage, it can be acquired very early in hardmode (before defeating any Mechanical Bosses) if the player is able to defeat two Sand Elementals for Forbidden Fragments and farm Desert Spirits for a single Desert Spirit Lamp (note that Desert Spirits only spawn in Underground Corrupt or Crimson Deserts, while Sand Elementals spawn in any kind of desert in hardmode during Sandstorms). Combined with a good Prefix, Accessories and Armor that increase magical damage (e.g. Jungle armor, Sorcerer Emblem...), the total damage of this weapon can be risen to and over 100. This can be a considerably overpowered weapon and very useful in dealing with hardmode enemies, and possibly for fighting against hardmode bosses, such as the Mechanical Bosses.
- This weapon will not home in on other players in Multiplayer, making it less useful for PVP combat.
