Tips[edit | edit source]
- The Dao of Pow is available early into Hardmode, and is available without defeating any Hardmode bosses, making it a suitable upgrade from late pre-Hardmode weapons.
- While the Confused status can help keep certain enemies at bay, many others are immune to this debuff.
- Like all Flails, holding the attack button will cause the head to remain deployed, dealing full damage to enemies that make contact with it.
- The chance to inflict the confusion debuff is calculated once for each attack, meaning that either every enemy hit during one attack sequence will get the confusion debuff or every enemy won't get it.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The Dao of Pow is colored black and white in a Taijitu or "Yin Yang"-style design commonly associated with Daoism. The Chinese word 道 meaning 'way' or 'path' is often romanized to either 'tao' or 'dao'.
- Its counterparts are the Sky Fracture and the Onyx Blaster. All three of these weapons require two shards along with Souls of Light and/or Souls of Night. Together, these weapons represent the three primary damage types: melee, magic, and ranged.
- The tooltip is a play on the phrase "Find your inner peace", referring to the inherent objective that Taoists should strive towards.
- A Dao is actually a traditional weapon used by Chinese warriors. It was a sword-spear combination that allowed sweeping attacks on enemies.
