The Broken Hero Sword is a Hardmode crafting material. It is not itself a weapon, and therefore can not be swung, reforged, nor 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% (30.94%) 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 DS version, it is instead dropped by Frankensteins and Swamp Things, with a 0.4% (1/250) chance.

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 VersionConsole VersionMobile Version As of 1.3.0.1, it is more profitable to craft excess Broken Hero Swords into True Excaliburs, as long as one has a surplus of Hallowed Bars: While a non-reforged True Excalibur sells for 100000*10 Gold Coin.png, its ingredients only sell for 68000*6 Gold Coin.png 80 Silver Coin.png (48000*4 Gold Coin.png 80 Silver Coin.png for 12 Hallowed Bars and 20000*2 Gold Coin.png for one Broken Hero Sword). This makes the True Excalibur 32% (32000*3 Gold Coin.png 20 Silver Coin.png) more 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.
