Fiery Greatsword in action.
The Fiery Greatsword is a sword crafted from Hellstone Bars. It may have a slow swing speed, but it has the third-longest reach and second-highest damage of all melee weapons before Hardmode. It has a 50% chance to inflict the On Fire! debuff, and emits fiery light particles when swung. It is one of the key ingredients in crafting the Night's Edge.
Its best Modifier is Legendary.
- It is the strongest of the swords used in crafting the Night's Edge, in terms of base damage.
