The Pigron Staff is a Hardmodesummon weapon that drops from Pigrons. It summons a friendly Pigron to attack nearby enemies. Pigrons attack by attaching themselves to enemies and rapidly hitting their target. Like other minions, summoned Pigrons are invincible and follow the player for an unlimited amount of time, unless the player dies, summons a replacement minion, or cancels the buff.
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 minion. Additionally, Minions cannot deal critical hits. The only significant advantage a Mythical Pigron Staff has over a Ruthless one is knockback.
Enemies frequently avoid player-inflicted damage when being attacked by multiple Pigrons, due to its high attack speed causing brief invulnerability to enemies. This is a similar effect to what the Stardust Dragon Staff causes, however like the Spider Staff, the Pigrons stay on top of the enemy until it dies, thus this effect can be much longer in comparison.
