Animation of the Exotic Scimitar.

The Exotic Scimitar is a melee weapon that has a 12.5% chance of being dropped from the Dye Trader. It is considered to be a broadsword and will, therefore, swing overhead.

Its best modifier is Legendary.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Because the player cannot directly attack the Dye Trader with normal weapons, Rotten Eggs or external damage sources such as traps are needed to kill him.
  • The Dye Trader will use this weapon when defending himself.
  • While it has more power and equal speed compared to the Muramasa, it is limited in usefulness by its low size and lack of autoswing.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • A scimitar is a curved sword of Middle Eastern origin used for fighting. It was used as early as the 9th century and has become an important symbol in many Arab cultures.
  • This weapon looks very similar to the Cutlass.
  • It also resembles the crossed swords icon used to enable PvP in multiplayer.
