UT Staff based on "Wavebreaker" amplitude exploit
*This post has been flagged as spam, so I had to add this.
As soon as I saw the "Wavebreaker" katana, I started to play around with the amplitude exploit. This is the result. A weapon that's good for clearing and for crowd control. Okay for bosses (a tiered staff or great climbing would be better), and okay for chests. Good staff for the all-rounder player.
(Can you make the projectile have a rotation of 185?)
Name: Staff of Fiery Devastation
Desc: An ancient staff imbued with the souls of thousands of fire mages, created for the sole purpose of burning down the world, piece by piece.
Damage: 95-110 (102.5)
Range: 0.04 (True range is 3.8)
Projectile Speed: 1
Projectile Lifetime: 400
Arc Gap: 165
Rate of Fire: 100%
Feed Power: -500
Fame Bonus: 5%
Shots pierce through enemies
Drops from Pentaract at 0.1% (1/1000) (Bear in mind it has a chance of dropping from 5 towers, making the actual drop rate 0.5% (1/200).
Why is this item unique and balanced?
It does a good amount of damage that's higher than the T14 staff and Great Climbing until about 60 DEF, but it is hard to get in both shots as the true range is 3.8, just above melee ranges. It does not do as much damage as UH staff, but has the most range in the game. It is unique in its pattern, and the fact that you have to aim it backwards. This makes it very sensitive if you have your mouse directly behind the direction you are aiming at, or not that sensitive if you aim far back. This makes it a weapon that is used best when mastered. In addition, if you have to aim backwards, when you go to shoot your spell at an enemy, you have to move your mouse to the front, therefore doing less damage. It also drops from the Pentaract, which currently has no custom UT drops.
The 2 DEF and VIT help to get in a little closer to land those two shots, and -2 WIS balances that out.

I really like the staffs sprite. Shading is done pretty nicely. Almost looks 3d-sih. I can't say the same for the projectile! I'm assuming the light comes from the middle? ;o
I don't see the piffels DPS graph!
Also, where would you use this? Does this fill a niche? ;o
@Pringle Oops, lol, was trying to find the 8x8 tiny sprite, second.
@Pringle Good for godlands/quest monsters since it has a pretty good damage output and has more range than UH staff and pierces enemies. Also, for the projectile, it's supposed to look like a silence bullet from the Twilight Mage in Shatters:
Bumparoo!(I can bump this, right?)
I was thinking why not drop from shatters, but penta seems decent, too many every time. 10/10 Nilly would read this
@Pyrouge i made a bow that you had to fire backwards but it got ignored :\
was a pretty balanced weapon too ;-;
Bump! Any detailed thoughts?
@ItsThatRektGuy Thanks for the feedback! Ornias drops at 0.5% and this drops at 0.4% :3, and I think that Pentaract really needs a custom UT, and the Red Demon already has one and isn't meant to in prod...
I love it, stats are great
@Claywhy Thanks, any thoughts on improvements? Bear in mind that I can't add an odd number of shots or it would also shoot backwards, and I don't want that :3
I'm thinking of adding in 4 shots and lowering the damage, what do you guys think? It'll be better for crowd control, but not effective at all against bosses/test chests.
@Pyrouge maybe (shots are good) but add more range!!!
@Claywhy It's already at 8.5 And the shots are pretty easy to hit:
I might want to increase the gap between the shots... But for hard quests like Cube and Skull Shrine, you will want a pretty long range stave to get the hits in... I'll change it to 10.5, I think...
Maybe this? It's good for crowd control and still does a decent amount of damage to bosses and treasure chests... I think I'll probably stick with 2 shots, though.
@Pyrouge if changed to 4 shots lower damage to 20-40
@Claywhy I lowered it to 35-65 for 4 shots, so at 0 def it does as much as UH, but plummets immediately.
@Pyrouge ok, maybe (MAYBE) you can make it armor piercing and make it 20-30 so Max 100-120 damage
@Claywhy Hm... The thing is, if I make it 4 shots, it doesn't shoot backwards...
The staff seems a little too op for a 1/250 from penteract. maybe 1/500+.
@Samuelmm Alright. I guess it has a 0.4% drop from all of the towers, so it needs a drop debuff. I'll make it a 0.1% chance to compensate.
wave breaker sux tho why would anyone use it
IM BACK THO UMG
nilly banned this acount but somehow i got it back wtf
