The Broken Hero Sword is a Hardmode crafting material. It is not itself a weapon and cannot be swung, reforged or placed on a Weapon Rack. It is dropped during the Solar Eclipse event, but what it drops from varies by platform.

On the Pc only.png Desktop version, the Broken Hero Sword has a 25% (30.94%) chance of being dropped by Mothron, which starts to spawn after all three Mechanical Bosses have been defeated. On the Console only.png Console versions and Mobile only.pngMobile versions, it is instead dropped by Frankensteins and Swamp Things, with a 0.4% (1/250) chance to drop. Frankenstein and Swamp Thing spawn during a Solar Eclipse.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Given the drop rate, it can be a good idea to use Water Candles and/or Battle Potions during a Solar Eclipse, to increase the chances of having multiple Broken Hero Swords dropped.
  • As of it is now more profitable to turn excess Broken Hero Swords into True Excaliburs, as long as you have surplus of Hallowed Bars. Base sell value of that item is 10 Gold Coin, with the next best alternative use for the Bars selling for 5 Gold Coin, resulting in a net profit of an additional 3 Gold Coin per Broken Hero Sword.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This item is an allusion to the classic literary trope of the disgraced or defeated hero who must repair their sword, or the similar trope of taking up the weapon of a past hero (perhaps killed by the monster dropping this item) to fulfill a destiny.
  • In the game "Starbound", One of the starter weapons for a human is the "Broken Hero Sword" though, it is used as a weapon rather than a material.
