The Plasma Rod is a Pre-Hardmode wand obtained from the Goblin Sorcerer and Tim. It shoots a beam that inflicts Shadowflame debuff to hit enemies. If it hits a tile instead, it will explode into eight smaller beams with higher damage. Due to the random spread of smaller beams, some may find it difficult to aim smaller beams at the enemy.

The direct hit of the wand can inflict Shadowflame debuff for 10 seconds.

Its best modifier is Mythical.


Used in[]


  • The smaller beams go through walls and leave residual embers behind, making it useful for lighting up and exploring areas.
