I'm busy brainstorming about how to make team healing effective even in singleplayer without being overpowerd. I'm not done yet, but this is one of the children born of that idea that I thought stood well on its own.

Mosquito Staff


Magic/Summon? Damage 9
Mana 10
Use time 28
Fires a mosquito to suck the life out of your enemies

The use time is if it's a magic weapon.

If the Mosquito is a magic weapon, then it behaves like a significantly weaker Piranha Gun.

Either way, when an enemy dies at the hands of a mosquito, it's guaranteed to drop a bunch of hearts. ~ 3 is where I'm thinking right now.

Found as loot in an Ivy Chest.

idk... but I do know there should be a leech launcher... like an upgrade to the piranah gun that will when it kills stuff drop as a pickup that is larger the more damage it dealt, also healing for more the larger it is.


I'd like this if it worked like the sentry summon weapons (Spider Queen and Hydra) in that you can only summon one minion, but that minion is a small "swarm" of mosquitoes that hit for 1 damage at a steady rate. (Rate would have to be balanced). Each hit heals the Summoner.
