The Tempest Staff is a drop from Duke Fishron and it allows the player to summon a small tornado that will hover above the player and follow the player around and shoot Sharknados at enemies.
- Other minions can be summoned together with the Sharknados, but the minion slots will be shared amongst them.
- This weapon may be a reference to the Syfy channel movie Sharknado.
- The maximum number of minions one can spawn is nine. This can be achieved by wearing a full set of Tiki Armor while equipped with Pygmy Necklace, Necromantic Scroll, Papyrus Scarab and under Summoning Potion Buff at the same time.
- The Sharknados are not homing, so they may miss moving targets.
- The tornado itself also deals damage when it touches enemies, giving this item a possibility to do continuous damage (unlike the Raven Staff, the tornadoes don't charge enemies, only hover).
- It now costs 10 mana to use.
