The Stardust Pillar is one of the four pillars that spawns after defeating the Lunatic Cultist.

The shield around the Stardust Pillar will be lowered after 100 (150 in Expert) enemies like Star Cells are killed near the pillar, allowing the player to damage and destroy the pillar. Exiting the game will reset this count.

Strategy

This pillar, along with the Nebula, is one of the easiest of the four pillars to fight early on. The main enemies you'll face while fighting it will be the Cells, the Milky Weaver and Flow Invader.

It follows a similiar strategy of the Nebula pillar, wich revolves around kiting the enemies around while lowering it's shield. The Cells are quite slow, but if the player overlook them, they will be able to return more numerous, and with their health and density, they may block out projectiles without piercing abilities. The Flow Invaders will be constantly firing projectiles at you, but they can be easily avoided by keeping your distance and dodging them away. The Stargazer and Twinkle/Twinkle Poppers are easy to deal with, because they will only attack if you stay above their position, and, assuming you are using Wings, they won't bother you as much as the Cells do. The Milky Weaver can be a nuisance, but they are easier to deal with than Crawltipedes, just shoot at their head segment, as they can't be damaged anywhere else. When the shield vanishes, you can then proceed to attack the pillar down. Keep in mind to also take away the enemies around it, mainly the Cells, as they deal high damage and can overwhelm the player if they weren't taken out earlier. Once it's defeated, you can collect the fragments to make two Endgame Summoning weapons: The Stardust Dragon Staff and Stardust Cell Staff, whom can be crafted and used against the remaining of the pillars.
