The Death Valley Duster is a craftable Hardmode spell tome. When used, it casts a large blast of damaging dust particles, which extend a short distance past the player, and are about as tall as the player. The particles can travel through tiles, pierce twice and inflict the Armor Crunch debuff.

Its best modifier is Mythical.
