Thank you for reviewing my guide in such detail! This may be true, but I never recommended the Cursed Flames as a bossing weapon. Cursed Flames can be used for mobbing and is decent at it, while the Crystal Storm just doesn’t compare favorably to other single-target weapons like Clockrifle or Ice Sickle. Factors other than DPS dictate a weapon’s usefulness at this stage of the game, chiefly a combination of disruption and crowd control. I guess it’s because it doesn’t get overwhelmed by all the tentacles that spawn in stage two? Though even that might be a bit generous, and I know that its DPS doesn’t measure up to the big two (serpent and fracture). Pretty much anything will get you past stage one anyways. Don’t use magic against Plantera. I haven’t looked yet, but did I rate knives DPS as 2/5 and piranha as 3/5? That seems like the accurate value to me, so if that’s not what’s written down right now, I’ll change it. Piranha Gun is probably higher because it’s hitting something almost 100% of the time. My ratings are not on a numeric scale, by the way; 3/5 is not 50% better than 2/5. It’s a subjective scale.
