The Ghast Staff is a Hardmode summon weapon that is found in Spirit Chests. It summons an Ethereal Ghast that surrounds and follows the player while it occasionally shoots out wisp bolts that home in on enemies. Taking a hit while being surrounded by an Ethereal Ghast will make it explode on contact. Only one Ethereal Ghast minion can only be summoned at a time.

As the Ethereal Ghast does not count toward the Minion cap, it will not cause any traditional minions to despawn; though summoning a second Ethereal Ghast will always cause the first to disappear, even if the player has Minion bonuses.

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 minion. Additionally, Minions cannot deal critical hits. The only significant advantage a Mythical Ghast Staff has over a Ruthless one is knockback.
