  • Durendal

A player attacking with the Durendal. Note the increased attack speed after striking the unicorn.

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, despite it being a summon weapon.




  • 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.


  • 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.
