The Palm Wood Sword is an alternate version of the Wooden Sword, made using Palm Wood from the Ocean Biome. It does slightly higher damage than the plain Wooden Sword, and can easily be crafted by cutting down Palm Trees, especially for new characters who would be interested in upgrading from their Copper Shortsword. Though it should be kept in mind getting to the Ocean Biome can consist of going through Corruption/Crimson or the Jungle Biome, making the slight damage increase not worth the dangerous trek for new players.
The damage of the Palm Wood Sword is equivalent of that to a Copper Broadsword.
Its best Modifier is Legendary.
- Once the player has collected some acorns (and sand), they can grow Palm Trees closer to home by planting them in sand.
- The Palm Wood Sword's sprite is very similar to that of the Wooden Sword; however, there are a few changes, the most obvious being that it has a lighter color. Also, the handle is slightly different in that its quillions are horizontal, whereas the Wooden Sword's shorter quillions stand parallel to the blade.
