The Fungal Icthyoid is a Pre-Hardmode summon weapon that can be obtained rarely from fishing in the Glowing Mushroom. On use, it summons multiple of spores that slowly home in on nearby enemies and disappear for a few seconds when attacking an enemy or being active. These spores can only be generated from a block or tile. Unlike most summon items, this item does not require a minion slot to function, meaning you can summon multiple times as you pleased.
Its best Modifier is Ruthless. The Mythical modifier provides the widest array of stats bonuses, but these primarily affect the initial summon rather than the resulting sentry. Additionally, Minions and Sentries cannot deal critical hits. The only significant advantage a Mythical Fungal Icthyoid has over a Ruthless one is knockback.
