    It's really hard to be a summoner, especially in early pre-hardmode. Most early summoner weapons do very low damage.





    I haven't made any sprites yet, they will be coming soon. I would like help with the slime armor, because I have no idea what it would look like.

    Tell me if any of this is unbalanced.

    It’s a good idea, but slime staff shouldn’t have a crafting recipe.

    But it also shouldn't be like a 0.01% drop chance...

    That’s what farming slimes is for.

    And slime statue.

    But if you are doing a new Summoner only playthrough, that drop chance doesn't cut it. It is extremely unreasonable why the drop chance is so low, it just makes life hell for new summoners, especially on Expert. Farming isn't really an option, the drop chance is still extremely low and quite frankly, makes no sense.

    A slime statue won't cut it. You could farm for hours and hours, and still have no luck. A drop shouldn't be that low, a statue should NOT be the solution to an early game problem for one of the four major classes of the game. That would be like saying there is only one kind of magic weapon,which is only a 1/50000 chance to drop from Demon Eyes. Keep in mind that finding a Slime Staff is several times more rare than finding a shiny Pokemon naturally in one of the games, and I'm sure many people know how rare that is.

    This drop rate is exponentially absurd and the statues don't solve the problem(you would also need the luck of finding the damn statue). A crafting recipe would be a perfect solution for early game summoners, so why not?

    Why don’t you add a crafting recipe to the slime statue

    That would only fix part of the issue. Farming shouldn't be the solution, a crafting recipe for the weapon itself would do fine on its own.

    Like I said, the drop rate is extremely absurd and it is unlikely you would get it, even with farming. A recipe won't hurt anyone, it would actually benefit the people who start out on the class. Why should the class have to struggle when it starts out? I certainly wouldn't want to farm for a 1/10000 drop chance just to get the only weapon available for a class at the beginning, so why should it be mandatory for that drop rate to even be that low?

    More summoner armors would be great. Terraria has like 5 or 6 of them so more of them wouldnt hurt.
