The Ember Staff is a craftable post-Moon Lord summon weapon. It summons a Molten Ember to rapidly blast homing ember projectiles at enemies. Occasionally, the Molten Ember will instead shoot a large fireball that deals more damage but does not home. Like other minions, summoned Embers are invincible and follow the player for an unlimited amount of time, unless the player dies, summons a replacement minion, or cancels the buff. Additionally, Molten Embers cost 2 minion slots each to summon.

Its best modifier is Ruthless. The Mythical modifier provides the widest array of stat 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 Ember Staff has over a Ruthless one is knockback.
