The Dance of Light being used against a group of Target Dummies, causing a flash of light after many hits that damages all Target Dummies including the one behind the player.

The Dance of Light is a craftable post-Moon Lord developer spell tome. Upon use, it rapidly summons four pairs of fast inaccurate Light Blade projectiles from a cone around the player towards the cursor's direction. Each pair of light blades will curve, converge, and home with each other; each projectile piercing up to two targets and pass through tiles. Once the blades have struck something 300 times, all nearby blades vanish and a flash of light appears from above to damage all enemies in a large area. The flash of light deals 16,000 magic damage added by the damage of all blades that vanished, then divided by the number of targets, and will always be a critical hit.

Its best modifier is Mythical.
