The Rainbow Rod fires a controllable orb similar to that of the Flamelash and Magic Missile, however, unlike the aforementioned weapons, the orbs change color whilst being controlled (only clearly visible at night or underground). The Rainbow Rod is the most powerful of all missile spells.



  • When cast, the orb changes color in a spectrum similar to a rainbow, which in turn is a reference to the name.
  • If used at the bottom of the world and moved upward, at a certain area the projectile will disappear. (Glitch)
  • The Rainbow Rod has the highest amount of magic damage on single impact than any other spell.
  • The Rainbow Rod is an excellent PvP (Player versus Player) weapon (This can be easily concluded from its Damage-vs-mana ratio and fire speed, especially when reforged with the Mythical prefix).
  • The Rainbow Rod is controlled with the cursor.


  • The Rainbow Rod can be boosted to do up to and over 110 damage (Normal Hit) or even 190 damage (Critical Hit).
  • Unless underground or it is nighttime, the player may not see the projectile change colors.

Maximum Damage StrategyEdit

To gain the maximum possible damage output with the Rainbow Rod, a player would have employ these tactics:

These tactics would allow the Rainbow Rod to deal a total of around 124 damage per hit on normal hits. Mana Regeneration Potions are also recommended, due to allowing much faster mana regeneration.
