The Staff of Necrosteocytes is a Pre-Hardmode summon weapon that drops from Dark Casters. When used, it summons a small skeleton minion which runs along the ground to target nearby enemies. While it is moving, lingering bone cells are occasionally dropped from the skeleton.
Its best modifier is Ruthless. The Mythical modifier provides the widest array of stat bonuses, but these primarily affect the initial summon rather than the resulting minion. Additionally, minions cannot deal critical hits. The only lasting advantage a Mythical Staff of Necrosteocytes has over a Ruthless one is knockback.
- "Necrosteocytes" is a portmanteau of 'Necro', meaning death-related, and 'Osteocytes', a type of bone cell.
