The Seabound Staff is a Pre-Hardmode summon weapon that is dropped by the Desert Scourge. It summons a star-fish like minion, which follows the player and attacks enemies with short dashes, dealing damage on contact. Like other minions, the summoned Brittle Star 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 Seabound Staff has over a Ruthless one is knockback.
- The Seabound Staff is rather slow to attack, but lunges similarly to the Eye of Cthulhu's second phase in Expert Mode. It pierces and is very swift when attacking.
