Plasma Vials are craftable, consumable Hardmode throwing weapons. They burst into solar clouds when they impact a tile or enemy, dealing area of effect damage and inflicting the Melting debuff. Additionally, if there are any gas clouds nearby the weapon's impact point, they will turn into large solar flares that inflict the same debuff and also stun hit enemies for a short duration; however, bosses cannot receive this effect.
