The Plague Staff is a Hardmode wand dropped by The Plaguebringer Goliath. It shoots out a spread of 4 plague fangs while one is always directed at the cursor, which are colored green and are trailed by pink light. The player can tighten the spread of the projectiles by aiming the cursor further away. All the fangs can pierce an enemy at the same time, and they can pierce through 5 enemies. On hit, they inflict the Plague debuff.

Its best modifier is Mythical.


  • This weapon can be considered a successor to the Venom Staff, as it has a similar method of attack with much better stats and a better debuff.
