The Enchanted Sword is a pre-Hardmode, autoswinging 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 dissipates upon hitting an enemy or solid block.

The Enchanted Sword can be obtained by destroying the background object of an enchanted sword in stone, as shown in the above picture, with a 98% Desktop version / 90% Console VersionMobile version chance. Otherwise, the stone will drop a Terragrim Desktop version / Arkhalis Console VersionMobile version. An Enchanted Sword Shrine will always include one, and more can be found placed in random locations underground. On the Desktop version Desktop version, they also have a 2% chance to be found in Golden Crates and Titanium Crates.

Its best modifier is Legendary.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • A small particle effect and the mana recharge "blip" will notify the player when the sword beam's cooldown is over and it is ready to fire again.
  • There is a small possibility that all of the shrines in the world contain fake swords which would force the player to fish for Golden or Titanium Crates to obtain one.
  • On the Desktop version Desktop version, Enchanted Sword Shrines will no longer have a "fake" background tile, and will always drop either an Enchanted Sword or a Terragrim. This does not go with tiles spawned in other places.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • If found early on, the Enchanted Sword can be a powerful early-game weapon, outclassing many pre-Hardmode melee weapons due to its decent damage and projectile.

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. Similar themes have since appeared in other media. The action-adventure video game franchise The Legend of Zelda features a sword that must be pulled from a pedestal, and one real sword to find amongst fakes.
  • It can be considered a counterpart to the Enchanted Boomerang.
