The Golden Shower is a spell that fires three streams of ichor at a very fast speed; these spread out in an arc and have a very wide range. The projectiles also pierce a seemingly infinite amount of enemies. The projectiles will lower the defense of any monster hit by its stream, making this Weapon extremely helpful during boss battles as well as crowd control. This effect that lowers defense is extremely useful when using a damage-over-time weapon (Scourge of the Corruptor, Cursed Flames, Piranha Gun, etc.).

The Golden Shower is arguably the best weapon to use against The Destroyer. Post-1.2.1.2, the debuff can no longer be applied to him, but the weapon's ability to hit massive numbers of segments at once for significant damage is still nearly impossible to outclass.

Notes

  • Any mob that has been hit with this weapon will be visible regardless of lighting conditions. Worms that have been hit will be affected per segment and not as a whole.
  • The Golden Shower may be used to lower the defense of an enemy before switching to another weapon to deal more damage. 
  • Taking into account that it is fired continuously (like Crystal Storm), does more damage, and reduces defense by 20 (from the Ichor debuff), this weapon is easily much more economic and powerful than Crystal Storm.
  • There is a bug that if you shoot the object (such as a Rope) animation can not be displayed.
  • This spell cannot be created without Crimson in the world because Ichor can only be dropped by the Ichor Sticker.
  • As of 1.2.3.1, the Golden Shower can only penetrate 5 enemies at a time, thus losing its overall effectiveness against groups.

Trivia

  • The way the weapon functions may be a reference to the Team Fortress 2 Sniper's Jarate, which lowers an opponents defense in the form of "Mini-Crits".
