The Eidolic Wail being used on three Target Dummies.

The Eidolic Wail is a post-Moon Lord magic gun that drops from Eidolon Wyrms after Polterghast has been defeated, as well as from the Primordial Wyrm. It fires a burst of three sound waves that can pierce six times and ricochet off of walls in quick succession. The wave initially deals 2% damage with a smaller size and grows to full size and damage after 0.83 seconds.

Its best modifier is Mythical.


  • The sound waves are fired 17 ticks apart, with a 30 tick delay between each group of three sound waves.
  • It only deals 50% damage to The Devourer of Gods.


  • Because the sound waves gain more damage as they grow, this weapon does increased DPS at a distance.
  • This weapon is near useless versus individual targets because its projectiles are so slow. However, its ability to ignore NPC immunity frames and pierce several times makes it incredibly powerful for dealing with crowds of enemies.
