The Spectre Staff's homing projectiles in action.

The Spectre Staff is a Hardmode, post-Plantera magic weapon that fires a fast-moving white "lost soul" projectile which homes in on the nearest enemy. The projectile looks similar to the one fired by the Ragged Caster, but cannot travel through blocks Desktop and Mobile versions Its projectiles can deal damage three times before disappearing. It has a 5*1/20 (5%) / 7.38*59/800 (7.38%) chance to drop from Ragged Casters found in the post-Plantera Dungeon.

Its best modifier is Mythical.
