The Necromantic Scroll is a Hardmode, post-Plantera accessory that increases the player's maximum number of minions by one and increases the damage of all summon weapons by 10%. The Necromantic Scroll is dropped by the Mourning Wood during the Pumpkin Moon event with a 2–20% (5–20%) chance depending on the current wave.[1]
