The Broken Hero Sword is a Hardmode crafting material. It is not a weapon itself, and therefore can neither be swung, reforged, or placed on a Weapon Rack. It can be obtained during the Solar Eclipse event. On the Desktop version Desktop version, Console version Console version, and Mobile version Mobile version, the Broken Hero Sword has a 25% (43.75%) chance of being dropped by Mothron, which starts to spawn after all three mechanical bosses have been defeated. On the Old-gen console version Old-gen console version and 3DS version 3DS version, it is instead dropped by Frankensteins and Swamp Things, with a 0.4% (1/250) chance. Its sole purpose is to craft the two components of the Terra Blade and, as of 1.4, the Terra Toilet.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Given the drop rate, it is not guaranteed to obtain one during a Solar Eclipse. Therefore, it can be a good idea to use Water Candles and/or Battle Potions during a Solar Eclipse to increase the number of opportunities of having one or even multiple Broken Hero Swords dropped.
  • Desktop, Console, and Mobile versions As of, it is less profitable to craft excess Broken Hero Swords into True Excaliburs. While a non-reforged True Excalibur sells for 100000*10, its ingredients sell for 123000*1230.This makes the True Excalibur 18.6% (23000*230) less profitable.

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.
