The Gate Staff is a Pre-Hardmode summon weapon that is rarely drops from Shockhoppers. On use, it summons two gates that can be placed when using the left-click and right-click buttons. If the gates are next to each other, they will create an electric field that can deal with constant damage and has a maximum reach in a total of 13 by 13 area square each. However, if the gates are out of the total reach the electric field will not be generated. Unlike most summon items, this item does not require a minion slot to function, meaning you can summon multiple times as you pleased.
Its best Modifier is Ruthless. The Mythical modifier provides the widest array of stats bonuses, but these primarily affect the initial summon rather than the resulting sentry. Additionally, Minions and Sentries cannot deal critical hits. The only significant advantage a Mythical Gate Staff has over a Ruthless one is knockback.
