Explodes into additional stardust shards upon hitting enemies
Stealth Strikes cause the stardust shards to fly alongside the javelin instead of rising
'Send the stars back to where they belong'
The Luminous Striker is a craftable Hardmode non-consumable javelin which is a direct upgrade to the Spear of Paleolith. It automatically throws a spear that doesn't pierce and isn't affected by gravity. While the spear travels, it releases trails of non-piercing stardust shards that accelerate upwards and deal a quarter of the spear's damage. Upon hitting an enemy, the spear shatters into more stardust shards that randomly spread out.
Performing a stealth strike with the Luminous Striker will cause the next spear thrown to build up stardust shards alongside itself as it travels, instead of releasing shards that accelerate upwards. These build up, landing a major hit on an enemy while the spear itself still explodes into additional shards.
Its best modifier is Flawless.
