    Skeletron gets a couple of unique drops, why not give a couple to the others as well? (He'll also be getting one, so don't worry.)

    (This is my 70th thread, so I did my own sprites to celebrate. :))

    King Slime

    Slime Staff
    Should be a 1/14 drop from King Slime.
    No longer dropped by Slimes.

    Eye of Cthulhu

    Servant Staff
    Summons Eye Minions to fight for you.
    Slow, clumsy, and awkward like the originals.
    No, they cannot fly through walls.​
    8 Summon Damage.
    * Dropped by EoC with a 1/14 chance.

    Of course, I feel bad for stealing the Optic Staff's sprite, so I made it a new, Twinsier sprite:

    Optic Staff

    Drop rate should be increased from 1/200 to 1/8 chance.

    Eater of Worlds

    Soul Eater Staff
    Summons miniature Eaters of Souls to fight for you.
    Lurking and hesitant. Will occasionally charge the target.​
    10 Summon Damage.
    * Dropped by EoW with a 1/14 chance.

    Repulsive Bile
    Reduces enemy spawn rate when held.
    Tooltip: "Pulsates with a strange, repellent energy."
    * Dropped by EoW with a 1/8 chance.

    Brain of Cthulhu

    Creeper Staff
    Summons tiny Creepers to fight for you.
    Closely orbit the player and can pass through walls.
    Will only charge at enemies in the player's line of sight.​
    9 Summon Damage.
    * Dropped by BoC with a 1/14 chance.

    Cursed Cerebrum
    Teleports the player to a random location on-screen.
    Inflicts the player with the Cursed debuff for 4 seconds upon use.
    Tooltip: "Using this might be a bad idea."
    * Dropped by BoC with a 1/8 chance.


    Handy Staff
    Summons two Skeletron Hands that protect/fight for the player for 1 minute.
    Limited to the length of the arms. (~6 block reach)
    Take the place of other "sentry" summons. (Queen Spider, Frost Hydra)
    Maximum of one summon allowed.
    Don't count towards minion total.​
    12 Summon damage.
    Dropped by Skeletron with a 1/14 chance.

    Wall of Flesh

    Staff of Consumption
    Summons unleashed Hungry minions that behave like Eye Minions.
    Slow, clumsy, and awkward like the originals.​
    24 Summon damage.
    Dropped by the Wall of Flesh.

    The Tongue
    Grappling hook.
    14 Damage.
    30-tile reach.
    14 Velocity.
    Single hook only.​
    *Weaponized. Can be used to latch onto and damage enemies.
    Dropped by the Wall of Flesh - 1/12 (8.3%)

    Let me know what you think. Comments and feedback are always appreciated.

    This Is AWESOME!
    However you forgot About King Slime And WoF

    Nice suggestion, as always. Love having some minion backup when mining or building :)
    Also will the effect of the calming potion stack with the Repulsive Bile?

    Oh yeah, I forgot I changed the title... :p

    I'll probably update with KS and WoF, but I'm busy porting over suggestions and maintaining threads I've already ported over atm.

    (And yes, if Battle Potion stacks with the Water Candle, Calming Potion will stack with the Bile.)

    Updated the main post. The Wall of Flesh is technically pre-Hardmode, right? Also added Slime Staff as a King Slime drop.

    How about a summoner emblem from WoF?
    Maybe with this as a texture?
  7. MegaMage314

    MegaMage314 Plantera

    not bad, though I can't say that I prefer the slime staff coming from the king slime, that boss is extremely expensive to spawn

    CraftedNightmare Here! Official Terrarian

    Love it! But what about the wicked queen bee?
  10. SzGamer227

    SzGamer227 Spazmatism

    Queen Bee has a sufficient amount of content, I think, between the regular drops, Beenades, and the Bee Wax Summoning gear.
  11. CraftedNightmare Here!

    CraftedNightmare Here! Official Terrarian

    True, but to me, it seems kinda empty, like the stag... Wait, what's that light coming from?
  12. Lecic

    Lecic Steampunker

    Sounds great. I'd love to see more things for summoners.
  13. BeNya!

    BeNya! Official Terrarian

    Want the Creeper Staff... *.*
    Forget it, I want all! :D

    Grand Paladin Tyrux Official Terrarian

    I love these! More Cthulhu items for the win :p

    plenty of food summoning items on this thread. I like seeing summons...
    How about some Hallow summoning staffs?
    Summon a chaos elemental.
    I want a battle fairy and not just a fairy that provides light.
    a mini unicorn summon perhaps?
    I can't really balance items that well...
  16. SzGamer227

    These are kind of unrelated to this thread, and a suggestion of its own would be more appropriate.

    Just make them do about the same amount of damage as the Spider Staff and you'll probably be fine. ;)
    Dreamtree likes this.
  17. Soulstiger

    Soulstiger Skeletron

    Love this, my favorite thing is probably the Handy Staff. Really like the fact that you are adding so much to early game summoning.
  18. MournfulRelic

    MournfulRelic The Destroyer

    Love it! great idea for early game summoning
  19. Azu

    Azu Retinazer

    While I like this, shouldn't there be a buff in damage for the weapons? They seem so underpowered compared to all the other drops of their bosses
  20. Beezwax&Nectar

    Beezwax&Nectar Spazmatism

    What class would the tounge's damage be classed as, Melee or ranged?
