The Starfury's signature attack (with the pre-1.2 sprite).

The Starfury is a Broadsword that summons a star from the sky when swung, which falls in the direction of the mouse cursor and causes damage to any enemies hit. It is one of the three rare items that can only be obtained from Skyware Chests on Floating Islands.

The sword itself deals a base damage of 22 as a melee weapon, while the stars deal an additional 22 damage and can pierce up to 2 times, which makes it quite a reliable early game weapon until you get better swords. Though in the mobile version the Starfury as a sword alone does no damage and the stars do 20-24 damage. Though these stars can be spawned much farther away than the players build reach and makes up for its disadvantage.

Notes[edit]

  • Stars that spawn within solid ground will fly through blocks until reaching open space, and only then become solid, affording the weapon continued usefulness while underground.
  • You cannot switch items while Starfury is recharging.
  • Sometimes, the falling star created by Starfury will pass through 1 tile thick floors.
  • Pygmies will run away from the Stars made by it.
  • Stars summoned by Starfury do roughly double the damage of the sword itself, but are difficult to actually hit enemies with.
  • Equipment that increases melee speed, such as Shadow armor, will increase the speed of the falling stars.

Tips[edit]

  • When exploring, the Starfury can be used to reveal the locations of adjoining caves because of the light it provides when colliding with blocks.
  • It is possible to use Starfury to shoot through walls by standing next to the wall and aiming towards the bottom of the screen in the direction opposite the target. Note that this is somewhat inaccurate and may not work if there are obstructions between the edge of the screen and the target.
  • In a pinch, you can also use this sword as a makeshift torch by swinging it repeatedly while underground. Useful if you're out of light sources.

Trivia[edit]

  • Originally, the starfury cost mana with each swing, and created multiple stars.
  • Fionna's Crystal Sword from Adventure Time is similar in appearance to The Starfury.
Anomaly.png Anomaly : In multiplayer, when another player uses the Starfury, they appear to be holding it down instead of swinging it.
