The light emitted by all six colors of Phasesaber.
Animation of the Blue Phasesaber.
The Phasesaber is a Hardmode / pre-Hardmodebroadsword which is a direct upgrade to the Phaseblade. It is very similar to its predecessor, except dealing about twice as much damage, being capable of autoswing, and having slightly modified visuals. As with Phaseblades, there are seven () / six () different color variations with identical statistics, with the color determined by the color of the Phaseblade used to craft it. All Phasesabers emit a small amount of light when swung.
Both the weapon's visual appearance and its sound effect bear a striking resemblance to the fictional energy sword lightsaber featured in the American epic space-opera media franchise Star Wars. This reference is further reinforced by the requirement of crystals and gems in the crafting of Phaseblades and Phasesabers, alluding to the colored kyber crystals which are used in the construction of lightsabers.
The sprites for Phasesabers are visibly brighter than Phaseblades.
In order to fix a bug where Phasesabers placed on Weapon Racks would be unbreakable, the developers remade all Phasesabers into new items (IDs 3764 through 3769), ones presumably that are impervious to the bug. Therefore, the "old" Phasesabers that had negative IDs (IDs -19 through -24) are no longer obtainable; instead, a new one is received. This is most likely the reason the fix is not retroactive yet.
