FRYING PANS
A new melee weapon.

So now you can whack people with frying pans!


The frying pan would be a melee weapon with a special ability:
CHARGING.
The longer you hold click, the longer it charges, up to three seconds for dem knockouts f00ls.
When you release click, it swings like a baseball bat. The longer it charges, the more damage and knockback it does.

I was thinking about adding boss-dropped or event frying pans. Good suggestions will be added!


Also, here's an achievement.

Obtain a frying pan.

I hope you enjoyed my suggestion!

Oh my goodness yes. I really like the aspect of just slapping the absolute crap out of my enemies. I also like the different abilities that some of them have too. Maybe also a luminite pan too? Anyways, support so I can bash Moon Lord's head in with a freaking frying pan!!!
 
Yet the charge mechanic is precisely what makes them so inferior. It saps all the DPS.
What I would do is take a fast sword, and a frying pan. One for DPS and one for damage. Would you like me to buff the attack of some to favour this?

I might be able to make some sprites for you, if you want.
You absolute god. Thank you.

But the damage is barely superior to a sword; in some tiers it's actually inferior. You would have to buff these by over 3x multipliers to make them even vaguely desirable.

So yes. Lol I made this weak in hope you wouldn't pop up and say this is too op. Right it's buffing time

As I said, mild buffs won't cut it. At lower tiers it isn't so much of an issue, but from mid-game onward these pans have no place as a weapon. Don't feel obligated to change; I'm simply stating facts, because I have difficult envisioning fixes for the issues.

Never mind.

HOLD UP A SECOND.
This is A GREAT Idea, but one thing bothers me.

Steel Frying Pan
crafting: 14 iron/lead bars at Anvil
damage: 23 minimum, 30 maximum

This Is starting minerals, And that's Demonite/Crimtane level there. Just look back at the pans and compare them to Early HM And Mid-normal Weapons. You'll see that these need nerfed.A LOT. Other than that, It's pretty awesome.

Lord Garak told me to buff them by loads, they were originally not op.

Well, I just think lead/Gold should be nerfed. Here's some suggestions. Lead: 9 Min, 13 Max. Gold: 13 min, 20 Max.
Of course if you want the damage the same, all I ask is for the pans to be more expensive by a notch.
