The Shellfish Staff is a Hardmode summon weapon that drops from Giant Clams. It summons a Shellfish which follows the player and attacks nearby enemies by attaching itself to them. Each Shellfish takes up 2 minion slots. Shellfish only deal direct damage when initially latching onto an enemy. From there, it inflicts the Shellfish Claps debuff for as long as it remains attached to the enemy. This debuff deals 50 damage over time for every shellfish attached to an enemy. Up to a max of 5 shellfish can cling to an enemy, causing 250 damage over time.

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 advantages a Mythical Shellfish Staff has over a Ruthless one is knockback.
