Gorgon-Gaze Staff casting animation.

The Gorgon-Gaze Staff is a craftable Pre-Hardmode magic weapon. It creates a mystic aura at the cursor's location that will rapidly damage enemies and has a chance to inflict the Petrify debuff on them, freezing them in place; however, bosses cannot receive this effect.

Its best modifier is Demonic for damage output, or Mystic for mana conservation because it cannot get modifiers that affect knockback.

Notes[]

  • Petrified enemies can still damage the player, but are slowed to the point of being nearly immobile.
  • The petrification debuff will be refreshed upon every damage tick, making it possible to completely immobilize large enemies until they are defeated.
  • Any number of enemies can be petrified at any one time, making this staff very effective at crowd control.
