The Light's Lament is a very strong Pre-Hardmode magic weapon. It fires a star that pierces through enemies and inflicts the Light Curse debuff that deals rapid damage over 3 seconds. If the star reaches the cursor's location or collides with a tile, it disappears and summons a twinkle that creates a shower of stars at that location. These stars will pass through tiles and deal ~80% damage to enemies and inflict them with a shorter duration of Light Curse.
Its best modifier is Mythical.
- Aesthetically, Light's Lament is very similar in color and style to Night's Edge, Eternal Night, Light's Anguish, and Falling Twilight.
- Light's Lament has a Crimson counterpart, Bloodboil, which uses Vessel Buster instead of Dark Wave as a component.
- Due to the falling stars passing through blocks and generating light, Light's Lament is very useful in finding cave networks, ore veins, chests, or other treasure found underground.
- It is an extremely potent weapon against the Wall of Flesh. If used properly, it can defeat it within only 3-4 screen lengths.
