The Skull Wand is a Pre-Hardmode summon weapon that is dropped by Cursed Skulls. It attacks enemies by casting dark magic bolts at them, which Giant Cursed Skulls shoot. It can be upgraded to Demon Staff.

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 Skull Wand has over a Ruthless one is knockback.
