I once made a new character to test different gear on my main world and the first slime I killed dropped a slime staff, and that wasn't the only time that happened.
So you cleverly dug under the lava but still enough to pick up the staff?This happened yesterday in my expert hardcore playthrough.
I was walking through the caverns, and came upon some lava. What was sticking out of the lava? A Slime Staff.
My jaw dropped. Never been so eager to jump in lava...
Very oddly, the staff was hovering just over the lava, on no blocks. I can't explain, as that's how I found it.So you cleverly dug under the lava but still enough to pick up the staff?
