The Plasma Rod in use. Note that only a direct hit applies the debuffs.

The Plasma Rod is a Pre-Hardmode wand obtained from the Goblin Sorcerer and Tim. It shoots a beam that inflicts many debuffs at once to hit enemies. If it hits a tile instead, it will explode into eight smaller beams with higher damage. Due to the random spread of smaller beams, some may find it difficult to aim smaller beams at the enemy.

The direct hit of the wand can inflict 5 different debuffs at once:

Its best modifier is Mythical.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Due to its ability to inflict the Ichor debuff for a short period of time, it can be very useful for many early game boss fights such as Crabulon, and can even be used up to The Slime God.
  • The smaller beams go through walls and leave residual embers behind, making it useful for lighting up and exploring areas.
