The Solar Flare is a post-Moon Lord yoyo dropped by Providence, the Profaned Goddess. Every impact with an enemy will produce a large explosion of embers that deal 75% of the weapon's damage and inflict the Holy Flames debuff. Unlike other yoyos, the Solar Flare ignores NPC immunity frames, allowing it to rapidly bounce off of enemies and inflict much more damage than its damage stat would indicate.

Its best modifier is Godly. It cannot get modifiers that affect size. Ruthless might be preferred if the player already has 100% critical strike chance.
