The Sharanga firing a Spectral Arrow and inflicting the Cursed Inferno debuff.

The Sharanga is a pre-Hardmode bow. When fired, it turns any sort of arrows into Spectral Arrows. Spectral Arrows produce a glowing effect and inflict the Cursed Inferno debuff.

This is the best bow available prior to Hardmode, and remains useful well into it.

Crafting this bow requires a total of 40 Hellstone Bars, or 120 Hellstone and 40 Obsidian.

Its best modifier is Unreal.

  • Shot arrows have a chance to fall after impact as a Spectral Arrow item.
  • The Spectral Arrows have significantly more damage than Flaming Arrows, meaning the Sharanga has more damage over the Molten Fury, as well as a stronger debuff.
  • Spectral arrows are a guaranteed drop from Ocram, meaning that this bow could well last throughout hardmode until after Ocram is defeated, making it a great choice for a long ranged weapon.


  • Sharanga is the bow of the Hindu god "Vishnu".
  • It is one of the very few craftable Old-gen console version and Nintendo 3DS version exclusive items not crafted from Souls of Blight. One other example is the tutorial Music Box.
  • It is the only pre-Hardmode means of inflicting the Cursed Inferno debuff and obtaining Spectral Arrows.
  • It is the only weapon to have 2 of the same weapon in its recipe.


  • Mobile Removed, existing Sharangas replaced with Hellwing Bow.
  • Mobile 1.1.91: Fixed a bug that prevented the crafting of the Sharanga. (iOS & iPadOS/Google Play)
