Lunar Flare's unique ability to pass through blocks.

The Lunar Flare is a Hardmode, post-Moon Lord magic weapon that has a 11.11*1/9 (11.11%) chance to be dropped by the Moon Lord. It summons three projectiles that rain down from above the game screen for each firing. These projectiles appear as turquoise streaks, and create small explosions on impact.

Unlike most weapons that summon projectiles from above (e.g. Starfury, Meteor Staff), Lunar Flare projectiles pass through any blocks necessary to arrive at the target point, making it a viable weapon even in enclosed areas.

Its best modifier is Mythical.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Lunar Flare's projectiles emit a significant amount of light, but not when passing through solid blocks.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The Lunar Flare is a formidable weapon, but its high mana cost may be difficult to manage without the use of a Mana Flower or any of its upgrades.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Lunar Flare can be considered a direct upgrade of the Blizzard Staff due to its similar mechanics, higher damage, and its ability to pass through any blocks above the cursor.
