The Profaned Sceptre being used against a couple of skeletons.

The Profaned Sceptre is a Post-Moon Lord Summon weapon. It is a direct upgrade from the Forbidden Sceptre. When used, it will summon a giant Sandnado that acts similarly to Duke Fishron's Sharknado attack, firing a barrage of mini Sand Sharks at enemies. The Sandnado itself will also deal damage.

The summoned giant Sandnado inflicts Minion damage, but is different from traditional Minions in that it does not count toward the maximum Minion count and lasts for only 2 minutes.

As the giant Sandnado does not count toward the Minion cap, it will not cause any traditional minions to despawn.

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 Profaned Sceptre has over a Ruthless one is knockback.
