Vessel Buster casting animation.

The Vessel Buster is a Pre-Hardmode magic weapon that is crafted from Crimtane Bars. It fires a short-ranged stream of blood to rapidly damage enemies.

It is one of the four staves needed to craft Bloodboil, the ultimate pre-hardmode staff for Crimson worlds.

Because the Vessel Buster has no knockback, it cannot have any modifiers that affect knockback, including Mythical and Ruthless.

Its best modifier is Demonic.
