The Venom Staff is a craftable Hardmode magic weapon. It is made at a Mythril Anvil or an Orichalcum Anvil, with 1 Poison Staff and 14 Chlorophyte Bars. It functions the same as the Poison Staff, but fires 4-6 projectiles, has better stats overall other than a slightly higher mana cost, and shoots purple fang projectiles that can inflict Venom.

Its best Modifier is Mythical.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Venom Staff always shoots a projectile directly towards the cursor. This effect can be observed when running quickly along an asphalt skybridge, autofiring the Venom Staff without moving the mouse. The projectiles will form a neat line.
  • Only one projectile will deal damage, even if multiple projectiles hit.

History[edit | edit source]

  • Now shoots 4-6 projectiles instead of only 5.
  • Now inflicts the Venom debuff, instead of the magnet sphere.
