The Spirit Flame in use.

The Spirit Flame is a Hardmode magic weapon. When used, a small purple flame will appear randomly around the player and hover in midair. When an enemy comes within range (about 25 tiles), the flames will home in on that enemy. Each flame will cause a small explosion, dealing splash damage. Five flames can be on the screen at the same time, and once a sixth flame is summoned, the first will disappear. The flames dissipate if no target is acquired within three seconds of casting.

Its best modifier is Mythical.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Like all homing attacks, the flames will not home in on other players in multiplayer.

Tips[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The purple flames and the explosions they make are very similar to the Desert Spirit's projectiles, which are what this weapon is based on.
  • The Nightglow can be considered to be an indirect upgrade to the Spirit Flame. They both spawn homing magic projectiles around the player, albeit the Nightglow's projectiles are much faster and and can hit multiple times.
  • The dark color may reference how at the end of the Disney film "Aladdin", an evil spirit is trapped within the lamp, hence the required Soul of Night.
