- For the enemy of the same name, see Enchanted Sword (NPC).
The Enchanted Sword is an extremely rare sword. It auto-swings and fires a sword projectile that costs no ammunition or mana. Both the sword and its projectiles produce lingering sparks that emit large amounts of light. The projectiles can fire roughly every 1-2 seconds.
The Enchanted Sword may be found in an underground Enchanted Sword Shrine, a land formation ("mini-biome") that has a chance of generating on world creation. Enchanted Swords may be found in other random locations as well, though they are still very rare, and will not necessarily be present in all generated worlds.
If found early on, it can be an incredibly powerful early-game weapon, vastly outclassing all pre-hardmode metal weapons.
Its best Modifier is Legendary.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The concept of a sword being stuck in stone originates from the 13th century poem Merlin by Robert de Boron, in which King Arthur was the only person able to pull a sword from its resting place in a stone. Similar themes have since appeared in other media.
- The design bears strong resemblance to that of the Enchanted Boomerang, along with their similar names.
- The design bears strong resemblance to the Master Sword wielded by Link in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, including the blue blade and hilt, and it fires a sword-shaped projectile much like Link's sword does in most Legend of Zelda games.
