The Primordial Ancient being used in the air and then against Target Dummies, both times passing through a wall of tiles.

The Primordial Ancient is a craftable post-Moon Lord spell tome that is a direct upgrade to the Primordial Earth. When used, it fires large blasts of dust at an incredibly high velocity and rate, and to a relatively far distance. The dust blasts can pass through tiles and will pierce five enemies before bursting upon hitting the sixth.

Its best modifier is Mythical.

Trivia

  • This item may be a reference to the Ancient spell tome from the Avalon mod, which fired a similar massive dust blast.
