  • Durendal

A player attacking Target Dummies with the Durendal.

The Durendal is a Hardmode whip crafted from Hallowed Bars. After the whip strikes an enemy, it will grant the Durendal's Blessing buff, increasing attack speed by 35%.

Like other whips, it causes minions to focus on the last-struck enemy and increases their damage against the target.

Its best modifier is Legendary.

  • Due to the nature of Durendal's Blessing buff, switching to another whip or melee weapon while the buff is active will increase its speed for a brief period.
  • It is possible, if the player can scroll fast enough, to get the speed effects of the Snapthorn, the Durendal, and the Dark Harvest at the same time. Strike an enemy with one, then select the next, and finally select the last whip and receive its bonus. However, this strategy is very impractical, because by the time the player selects the last whip, the first speed bonus might have already run out. The strategy could be complemented by equipping Obsidian armor, or by only using two of the whips at a time.


  • This item's name is in reference to a historical sword of the same name, wielded by the paladin Roland of Charlemagne's court.
  • Although the icon looks like a sword, this weapon is a whip of substantial length. When used, the blade separates into many segments connected to the handle by a red wire or rope.
