Not to be confused with the Royal Scepter, a vanity accessory sold by the Princess.

The Resonance Scepter is a Hardmode, post-Plantera staff which has a 12.5*1/8 (12.5%) chance of dropping from the Princess NPC. When used, it creates glowing pink circles at the cursor's location, which expand and then collapse into sparkles over the course of about 1 second. Rapid damage is dealt to any enemies within the circles throughout the animation, and they are knocked back away from the caster. It is not possible to summon the circles through blocks. The scepter in the player's hand also sparkles while it is used, emitting pink light.

Its best modifier is Mythical.


A player using the Resonance Scepter.


  • This is a powerful magic weapon, but it requires every NPC to be present as that is the requirement for the Princess NPC to spawn.


  • The Princess uses the same attack when threatened by enemies, although the staff is not shown.
  • One may obtain the Resonance Scepter pre-Plantera in the Celebrationmk10 seed by killing the princess as soon as Hardmode starts, since there is no check for whether or not Plantera has been defeated.


  • Desktop No longer drops pre-Hardmode, if the Princess is somehow obtained pre-Hardmode.
