The Fungal Symbiote is a Pre-Hardmode accessory found in the Glowing Mushroom biome shrine. When equipped all weapons classified as true melee will fire three to five spinning mushrooms after each swing, depending on the weapon used. Each mushroom does 25% damage (based on the player's melee damage multiplier and the weapon's damage) and will linger until it collides with an enemy or 3 seconds have elapsed. In addition to this true melee damage is increased by 15% with this equipped.
The mushrooms are softcapped at 100 damage, with any further damage increases being 90% less effective.
- The Fungal Symbiote is extremely effective when combined with the Mandible Claws, Mycelial Claws, or the Fetid Baghnakhs, allowing them to create barrages of mushrooms to damage enemies.
