The Flame Staff is a powerful item that can be gotten by destroying a Corrupted Ghast. You have to charge it up by holding the place block key (Usually right mouse button) and letting it go to unleash a barrage of fireballs. Barely any charge is just one fireball. A little more charge is a spread of fireballs. Some more charge is an assault of fireballs. A lot of charge is a big fireball that explodes. EVEN MORE charge is a spread of big exploding fireballs. The maximum charge is an assault of exploding fireballs. Truly one of the more OVP weapons. These explosions are those of a charged creeper.
