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.
The Venom Staff being used. Note the random spread of the fangs.
- 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.
