|Dank Creeper (minion)
The Dank Staff is a craftable Pre-Hardmode summon weapon that can also be dropped by The Hive Mind. It is statistically identical to its Crimson counterpart, the Blood Clot Staff. It deals contact damage, and will stay on enemies for as long as possible. Like other minions, the summoned Dank Creeper is invincible and follow the player for an unlimited amount of time, unless the player dies, summons a replacement minion, or cancels the buff.
Its best modifier is Ruthless. The Mythical modifier provides the widest array of stats bonuses, but these primarily affect the initial summon rather than the resulting minion. Additionally, Minions cannot deal critical hits. The only significant advantage a Mythical Dank Staff has over a Ruthless one is knockback.
- The Dank Staff is very helpful for multiple enemies stacked in one location, so it can be good for invasions.
- Although its base damage is lower than other summons of the same tier, the dank creeper's tendency to hover on top of enemies causes it to deal damage rapidly.
