The Amethyst Staff being used to attack a Target Dummy.

The Amethyst Staff is a pre-Hardmode magic weapon, and is the first and weakest tier of gem staff. It fires a non-piercing purple bolt.

(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) Its best modifier is Mythical.

(Old-gen console and 3DS versions) Its best modifier is Godly or Demonic. Both modifiers increase the average damage output by the same amount. It cannot get the Mythical or Masterful modifiers due to its low mana cost.
