The True Excalibur is a Hardmode sword. It is a stronger version of the Excalibur, firing a glowing pink sword projectile called "Light Beam" in the direction of the cursor. Because this ability has a short cooldown, not every swing of the sword launches a Light Beam. The True Excalibur is one of the ingredients necessary to craft the Terra Blade.

Desktop version The projectile can pierce once, hitting up to 2 enemies.

Console VersionMobile version Unlike the Excalibur, the True Excalibur is not capable of autoswing.

Its best modifier is Legendary.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Due to their similar properties and counterpart characteristics, the True Excalibur can be compared to the True Night's Edge:
    • The True Night's Edge does Desktop, Console, and Mobile versions 50% (Old-gen console version3DS version 30%) more damage, but is only 63% as fast. The Light Beam can go through one block-wide gaps, both horizontally and vertically, while the Night Beam, the glowing sword projectile fired by the True Night's Edge, can pass through solid one block-thick walls if standing directly adjacent. It cannot be fired vertically through ceilings or floors.
    • Because it spins, the Night Beam effectively hits more enemies than the Light Beam. However, the Light Beam can be launched more often and moves at a faster speed.
    • The True Excalibur has a Desktop, Console, and Mobile versions 8% (Old-gen console version3DS version 20%) lower DPS as it does less damage and the more speed bonus doesn’t make up for it. Note that DPS is merely a rough estimate and far from being a reliable stat for comparison.
  • On the Mobile version Mobile version, the beams fire faster when rapidly tapping the screen (thrice a second) than using the autoswing (twice a second).
    • As of the current Desktop version Desktop version, it is also possible to fire the beam faster by rapidly clicking instead of holding down the attack button. It is unknown if this is intended or not.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Light Beams quickly pulsate, which can be viewed in detail by riding on a minecart at full speed and firing straight forward.
