Weapons & Equip - Summoner overhaul part one: the prehardmode pro (2024)

Okay, I know that lots of people have suggested summoner improvements, but I feel that not all of them have made summoner a completely viable class. That and Isn't the only reason why I wanted to make it but that is not the only reason why I made this thread, but I am a lazy butt so I'll keep it short and sharp. I hope you enjoy and P.S this is only my second suggestion so don't hate too hard
Note:now minions DO have critical strikes.

Earlygame staffs
First of we don't really have a weapon to start off with, so solved this with the falcon staff
it will be obtainable in wooden chests

Falcon staff

10 mana
4% crit chance
Summons a falcon to damage your enemies

the falcon will fly around you and dive down toward enemies.

Archer staff
Crafting:
10 wood
100 wooden arrows
5 iron bars
Stats:
8 summon damage
4% crit chance
Summons an archer to fire arrows at enemies

Enchanted Gel
The slime staff was too rare, so I made it that you had to venture underground, but was still pretty obtainable

Slime staff
Crafted with:
10 wood
15 gel
3 fallen stars
10 glowing mushrooms
Stats stay the same

Enchanted gel mask

Set bonus: enemies take a small amount of knock back when you are hit (you still take knock back too)

all things crafted with a solidifier

Desert Biome

The Evil Biomes
Crimson:

Corruption:
Devourer staff
Crafting:
12 demonite bars

It behaves exactly like normal devourers and each time you summon a new minion it grows and does more damage.
Stats:
16- 28 damage (depending on minion count, each time you summon a new one it does 2 more damage) after the max damage has been reached, further summons improve length and speed but not damage.

Ice Biome
First off I decided to make this a mostly summon biome in prehardmode. Rangers have dungeon, Magic has jungle and meteorite, melee has hell and Crimson/Corruption
And throwing has desert, so summoner will get ice.

Ice crystals will spawn in the biome like crystal shards, and will not emit light. They will only be mineable with nightmare/crimtane pick or greater, and the block underneath is unmineable unless the ice shard has been destroyed

Ice golem staff
Summons ane ice golem to fight for you
Crafting:
14 ice crystals

23 damage
4% crit chance
Throws ice boulders that damage enemies and behaves like a normal boulder (if enemies are far away)
If enemies are closer it does contact damage

Snow charm
Crafting:
10 icy shards
Stats:
Accessory
Minions inflict hypothermia (new debuff) which does 5 damage per second and slightly reduces movement speed.

Icy bone

Stats: increases minion movement speed and decreases summon staff mana cost

Polar bear staff

Stats:

Random Stuff

These items didn't fit into any category really so they ended up here
