Terraria (Wiki): Inferno Fork


Everything you need to know

General Information

The Inferno Fork is a magic weapon that launches a fairly-slow fireball that deals contact and explosion damage for 1s.    The projectile from the Inferno Fork also inflicts Hellfire (desktop, mobile, console) / On Fire! (3DS, old-gen consoles) debuffs. The former prevents health regeneration and deals -15HP/s for 8s to 15s. The latter also prevents health regeneration and deals -4HP/s for 8s to 15s but can go up to -29HP/s at the same duration when Oiled.    In combat, it is ideal to use the Inferno Fork while flying to maximize the spread of Area Effect damage. Using the magic weapon underwater also works, albeit affecting the projectile’s traveling speed. Even enemies behind walls will get caught in the explosion.
