The Enchanted Sword is a pre-Hardmode, autoswing projectile sword. When swung, it fires a sword-shaped projectile that costs no ammunition or mana. Both the sword and its projectiles produce lingering sparks that emit large amounts of light. The projectiles can be fired roughly every 1-2 seconds, and dissapated upon hitting an enemy or solid block.

The Enchanted Sword can be obtained from breaking the Background Sword sprites shown in the above picture. These can be found in random locations underground, or it can be found in Enchanted Sword ShrinesDesktop VersionConsole VersionMobile Version.

If found early on, it can be a powerful early-game weapon, outclassing many pre-hardmode melee weapons due to its decently high damage and projectile.

Desktop VersionConsole VersionMobile Version Upon breaking a real Enchanted Sword Shrine, there is a 1/10 chance for an Arkhalis to drop instead.

Its best modifier is Legendary.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Unlike the Enchanted Boomerang, the Enchanted Sword cannot be 'upgraded'.
  • A small particle effect and the mana recharge 'blip' will notify the player when the sword beam is ready to fire again.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The concept of a sword being stuck in stone originates from the 13th-century poem Merlin by Robert de Boron, in which King Arthur was the only person able to pull a sword from its resting place in a stone. Contrary to popular belief, the sword in question was not Excalibur. Similar themes have since appeared in other media.[1]
    • In the Legend of Zelda Series, the hero Link often pulls the Master Sword from a pedestal, much like the Enchanted Sword Shrine.
      • The design bears a strong resemblance, including the blue blade, hilt, and the sword-shaped projectile (much like Link's Sword Beam in some games).
  • The design bears a strong resemblance to that of the Enchanted Boomerang, along with their similar names.
  • Like the Enchanted Boomerang, the Enchanted Sword has an ice counterpart, the Ice Blade, which also has a projectile but does less damage.
