The Shadow Orb Staff is a craftable Hardmode summon weapon. It is unique in that it does not summon typical minions; rather, it summons a shadowy orb directly at the cursor. As many orbs can be summoned at once as the player has maximum minion slots; however, they do not actually take up slots. The orbs will remain stationary and deal damage to enemies that touch them until the player right-clicks the staff, whereupon all summoned orbs will fly as projectiles towards the cursor's direction. In this state, the orbs cause dark explosions upon contacting enemies, dealing damage multiple times to multiple enemies.

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