The Star-Tainted Generator is a craftable Hardmode accessory that functions as direct upgrades to the Jelly-Charged Battery, Nuclear Rod, and the Starbuster Core. While equipped the player gains +2 minion slots and 7% increased minion damage. In addition to this, all minion attacks will have a 33.33% chance to release a small astral explosion that damages enemies for 50% of the minion's damage, and all minions will inflict the Electrified, Astral Infection, and Irradiated debuffs.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Astral explosions from the Star-Tainted Generator softcap at 75 summon damage. Any amounts exceeding it will be 90% less effective.
  • The explosion effect is identical to the Starbuster Core, will be overridden by the Nucleogenesis's sparks, and will override Nuclear Rod's aura and Jelly-Charged Battery's orbs.
