The 致命球法杖 is a 困难模式, post-世纪之花 仆从-summoning weapon that summons a 致命球 character to fight on the player's behalf. The Deadly Sphere flies continuously and charges at 敌怪 to inflict damage. It cannot attack through 物块s. The Deadly Sphere has several visual forms. It periodically rotates between these forms after it has attacked three times. This has no mechanical effect. It has a 2.5% / 3.75% (1/40 / 3/80) chance to drop from Deadly Spheres during a 日食.
Its best 修饰语 is 无情. The 神话 modifier provides the widest array of stats bonuses, but these primarily affect the initial summon rather than the resulting minion. Additionally, Minions cannot deal 暴击s. The only significant advantage a 神话 Deadly Sphere Staff has over a 无情 one is 击退.
- Like the enemy that drops it, this item is a reference to the 1979 film, 幻影弓.
- The staff may appear with the 致命 modifier, resulting in the name "Deadly Deadly Sphere Staff".
- Summoned Deadly Sphere minions appear to have a shorter than average enemy detection radius (about 40 tiles) compared to many other summoned minions that can detect enemies off-screen.
- One of the designs for the Deadly Sphere resembles a TIE-Advanced from Star Wars
