Spells are magical items the player can use, they require mana to be used, and deal damage. Most Spells do damage, with the exception of the Magic Mirror, Rod of Discord, Dirt Rod, Fairy Bell, Crimson Heart and Shadow Orb (Spell). The best Prefix for most spells is "Mythical". There are some mage weapons that have the word gun in their names even though they are not ranged weapons and do not consume ammo (Bee Gun, Space Gun, Rainbow Gun).
