Aestheticus Crystal
Aestheticus Crystal
Aestheticus being used on a Target Dummy and a Super Dummy. Notice how the 4 crystals temporarily deal no damage before homing in, and crystals being able to home onto the same target.

The Aestheticus is a craftable Pre-Hardmode classless weapon. When used, it swings in a similar manner to broadswords. It fires a homing crystal that splits into 4 more homing crystals which explode on collision. Both the main and split crystals inflict the Vaporfied debuff, which makes the hit target lose 6 health per second and reduces their movement speed by 10%. The weapon and its projectiles scale with the current damage stats from all classes.

The Aestheticus cannot be reforged, and therefore cannot have modifiers.

  • If the debuff is inflicted onto a player, they instead lose 4 health per second and their natural life regen is disabled.
  • This weapon does not have any critical strike chance and cannot gain any from accessories, modifiers, buffs and armor bonuses.
  • The damage multiplication is equal to all-class damage bonuses added by the average of damage boosts from each of the 5 individual classes (Melee, Ranged, Mage, Summoner, Rogue).
    • e.g. If the player has +10% melee damage, +30% ranged damage, +5% rogue damage, and +15% all-class damage, the Aestheticus will deal 24% more damage.


  • This weapon does a large amount of damage to segmented enemies due to the fact that all of the segments can have the effect at the same time.


  • This weapon is themed around Vaporwave imagery, including pastel blues and pinks and a pattern reminiscent of the classic Windows logo. The name of Vaporfied debuff makes reference to this.
    • The name of the weapon is a reference to the common usage of the term "AESTHETIC" when referring to vaporwave imagery.
    • It is also based off an enemy named 'Aestheticus' from the game 'Cat-Girl Without Salad: Amuse-Bouche'.
  • Players that are nearby a target inflicted by the Vaporfied debuff will flash a variety of colors.
