The Lodestone Staff is a Hardmode magic weapon that fires a piercing gem that will inflict enemies with the Sundered debuff, lowering their defense and illuminating them for a short time. If the gem hits a solid block, it will erupt into a cascading wall of earth that will damage and debuff enemies in a wide area around the impact point.

Its best Modifier is Mythical.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The earth cascades will travel approximately 15-20 tiles to either side of the impact point, and will pierce through all enemies in the area. The earth walls will also linger for a short time, rapidly damaging all enemies trapped within.
    • These two factors makes this staff extremely potent against large groups of ground-based enemies, such as those found within the Dungeon or encountered in any of the Events.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Lodestone Staff is the only item crafted from Lodestone Ingots that supplements the lodestone with another material; the red gem used to top the staff is unique.
