The Shimmerspark is a craftable Hardmode yoyo that will return to the player after hitting enemies 8 times. When the yoyo returns to the player, another one will be automatically thrown if they are still holding the fire button. If enemies are nearby, the Shimmerspark will randomly fire slow-moving purple stars at them. The fired stars can pierce one enemy but will not go through walls.

Its best modifier is Godly.

  • The Shimmerspark will not perfectly follow the cursor while thrown.
  • When using the Yoyo Glove or Yoyo Bag, the second yoyo will also fire stars at enemies.
