The Burning Sky being used on several Target Dummies. Note the lack of a swing, with the weapon being pointed like a staff.

The Burning Sky is a unique post-Moon Lord melee weapon that is dropped by Yharon, Dragon of Rebirth. When used, the player holds the weapon out similarly to a wand, and a stream of burning meteors rain down from the sky in the direction of the cursor. The meteors inflict melee damage and can travel through tiles but do not pierce enemies. The meteors inflict the Dragonfire debuff for 3 seconds on contact. The weapon itself does not deal damage.

Its best modifier is Godly. It cannot get modifiers that affect size.


  • This weapon can be considered an indirect upgrade to the Star Wrath, with far higher DPS but somewhat reduced accuracy and no direct sword swing.
  • Melee speed bonuses increase both the fire rate and projectile speed of The Burning Sky.


  • The Burning Sky was originally implemented based on a community suggestion made by Vladimier on the mod's Terraria Forums post.
