The Midnight Staff is a craftable Hardmode radiant weapon and Aura Staff. It causes an aura to surround the cursor of the casting player, which periodically damages enemies that stay within it and inflicts them with the Light Curse debuff. Right-clicking using the weapon will cancel any aura currently surrounding the cursor. The aura has a radius of approximately 3 blocks.

  • This aura stave is unique, as its primary purpose is to hurt enemies, rather than bolster allies.
  • The aura is not channeled, meaning the player only has to cast it once for the effect to persist. This allows players to create an aura, then use other direct forms of healing or deal damage.
