Enchanted Sword (NPC)
- For the weapon of the same name, see Enchanted Sword (item).
The Enchanted Sword is a Hardmode enemy that spawns in the Underground Hallow. It hovers and spins before lunging at the player, traveling through any blocks to reach them. Any knockback stops its attack, forcing it to pause and spin up again. It can inflict the Cursed debuff.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- Enchanted Swords will not spawn if the player is standing in front of housing Walls.
- Enchanted Swords will only spawn on top of Hallowed grass, Pearlstone, Pearlsand, or Pink Ice. They can do so even if the player is not specifically in a hallowed biome.
- The Arkhalis is an excellent weapon to deal with this enemy, as even a single hit forces to recharge its spin. In effect, the Arkhalis can act as a shield for the player, completely impassable by the Enchanted Sword.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The Enchanted Sword NPC shares the same sprite (minus the blue glow) as Excalibur, the strongest sword in the 1.1 update in which they were both introduced.
- The Enchanted Sword item, introduced in 1.2, has a completely different sprite.
