The Enchanted Sword is a rare sword. It autoswings and fires a sword 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 fire roughly every 1-2 seconds.

The Enchanted Sword is found in the form of small Underground background objects, shown in the above picture. On the Desktop version Desktop version, Console version Console version, and Mobile version Mobile version, the Enchanted Sword can be found in an Enchanted Sword Shrine. In older versions on the game or on 3DS/Old-gen Console, the enchanted sword background sprites can be found in random locations underground.

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.

Its best modifier is Legendary.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Unlike the Enchanted Boomerang, the Enchanted Sword cannot be 'upgraded'.
  • The blue pulse and sound indicates when projectile swords are ready to throw a projectile again, which is the same indicator as when your mana is full

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.
