Saros Possession is a craftable post-Moon Lord summon weapon and the direct upgrade to Sirius. It summons a radiant aura around the player that fires homing flares towards enemies. Homing radiant orbs will occasionally be summoned. Summoning the Saros Possession will consume all remaining minion slots, with the number of slots consumed increasing the damage of both the flares and the radiant orbs.

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 Saros Possession has over a Ruthless one is knockback.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The player glows incredibly bright while the radiant aura is summoned.
  • The multiplier for the minion's damage is the natural log of the number of slots it occupies, plus 1.
    • Notably, when the minion occupies 3 slots, it has roughly double its initial damage. When the minion occupies 8 slots, it has roughly triple its initial damage. The minion requires 20 slots in order to have roughly quadruple its initial damage, and roughly e times the minion slots for each additional multiple after that.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The sprites for both the staff itself and the minion it summons are references to the Radiance, a boss in the video game Hollow Knight.
