The Spikecrag Staff is a Hardmode sentry that drops from the Ravager. When used, a spikecrag sentry is summoned. The spikecrag fires an intense upward spray of gravity-affected spikes when enemies are nearby; 2 to 3 spikes every 1/6th of a second.

Its best modifier is Ruthless. The Mythical modifier provides the widest array of stat bonuses, but these primarily affect the initial summon rather than the resulting minion. Additionally, minions cannot deal critical hits. The only lasting advantage a Mythical Spikecrag Staff has over a Ruthless one is knockback.



  • This weapon can output extremely large amounts of damage if an enemy with a large enough hitbox (e.g. a boss) ends up just above it, as most of its rapidly fired spikes will hit. Combined with the right gear and increased sentry slots, it can easily output DPS in the order of tens of thousands.
