The Fungal Staff is a craftable Hardmode sentry summon weapon. It summons a Mushroom Cap at the player's cursor that fires a burst of 5 small spores at the closest enemy within its range. Spores inflict the Fungal Growth debuff onto hit enemies, dealing additional damage and slowing them down.
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 Fungal Cane has over a Ruthless one is knockback.
