  • Durendal
A player attacking with the Durendal. Note the increased attack speed after striking the mimic.

The Durendal is a Hardmode whip crafted from Hallowed Bars. If the whip continuously strikes an enemy, its attack speed will noticeably increase (by 35%) for a short time. This bonus will continue to occur even if the player switches to another whip or melee weapon because of the Durendal's Blessing buff.

Its best modifier is either Sluggish for maximum range, Bulky for a mix between damage and range, or Legendary for maximum damage output at the cost of range.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This item's name is in reference to a historical sword of the same name, wielded by the paladin Roland of Charlemagne's court.
  • Although the icon looks like a sword, this weapon is a whip of substantial length. When used, the sword pieces separate, connected by a red wire or rope.
  • The design of the item may stem from the Castlevania Whip sword item, as seen in Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow and Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow.
