The Pygmy Staff is a Summoning Weapon dropped by the Hard Mode boss, Plantera. The staff allows, initially, for the player to summon one Pygmy Minion that acts like a pet and follows the user around. If an enemy is close, it'll charge and throw spears at it. Pygmies' attacks will often miss when attacking moving targets.
- Other minions can be summoned alongside the pygmies, but the minion slots will be shared amongst them.
- The max number of minions a player can summon at one time is 11, using Stardust Armor, Necromantic Scroll, Pygmy Necklace, Papyrus Scarab, Summoning Potion and Bewitching Table.
- Having a Pygmy Staff in the inventory will unlock more items sold by the Witch Doctor.
- It now costs 10 mana to use.
- The damage has been slightly increased.
- Added to the game.
