The Gravistar Sabaton is a Hardmode accessory that is dropped by Astrum Aureus.

When equipped, it increases jump speed by 20% and grants immunity to fall damage. Holding the Gravistar Sabaton Hotkey while in midair for 1 second will charge up a superspeed slam. When slamming, the player can ram through enemies and take no contact damage. Hitting the ground creates an explosion that scales in size and damage depending on how long the slam lasts, scaling linearly from 300 to 1200 damage over 2 seconds. The explosion inflicts the Astral Infection debuff. After slamming, jump speed is temporary increased by 40% for the next 0.66 seconds.

Notes

  • The damage of the astral explosion is increased by the player's melee damage boosts.

Tips

  • The explosion is very good at mapping out uncharted underground areas, due to its large size and light-emitting particles.

Trivia

  • A sabaton, historically, was a piece of armor that covered the foot of a knight.
