The Herring Staff is a Pre-Hardmode summon weapon that is found in the Shadow Chests in the Abyss. It summons a Herring which charges at enemies in order to attack them. Unlike most minions, the Herring only takes up half a minion slot, allowing the player to summon twice as many Herrings as one-slot minions.

Its best modifier is Ruthless. The Mythical modifier provides the widest array of stats bonuses, but these primarily affect the initial summons rather than the resulting minion. Additionally, Minions cannot deal critical hits. The only significant advantage a Mythical Herring Staff has over a Ruthless one is knockback.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Herring minions will not target any enemies off-screen.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Despite being named 'Herring Staff', the actual minion spawned by the staff doesn't quite look like a herring, since herrings have a distinctive reflecting silver-like color, while the minion's color is dark blue.
