The Burning Strife is a Hardmode non-consumable rogue spiky ball that is dropped by Goblin Summoners. It throws a gravity-affected shadowflame spiky ball that bounces off of solid blocks. Upon contact with an enemy, the spiky ball will explode and inflict the Shadowflame debuff to all nearby enemies.
Performing a stealth strike with Burning Strife causes the next spiky ball thrown to pierce through four enemies before being destroyed on contact with a fifth. Whenever the spiky ball strikes an enemy, it releases an explosion that is larger and more damaging than the non-stealth version.
Its best modifier is Flawless.
- The Burning Strife was implemented based on a community suggestion made by Iris Cassandra Saintclaire (known as Lilith Saintclaire at the time) on the mod's Discord server, where it was called "Shadowflame Core".
