The Astral Barrier Wand is a craftable Hardmode summon weapon. It summons an Astral Barrier that orbits around the player. On contact with an enemy, it deals damage.
Its best modifier is Ruthless. The Mythical modifier provides the widest array of stat bonuses, but these primarily affect the initial summon rather than the resulting minion. Additionally, Minions cannot deal critical hits. The only significant advantage a Mythical Astral Barrier Wand has over a Ruthless one is knockback.
- When multiple Astral Barriers are summoned, they will be separated apart from one another by a distance based on the player's maximum minion count.
