Its best modifier is Godly or Demonic. Both modifiers increase the average damage output by the same amount.

Tips[]

  • This weapon is easy to acquire early, relative to its strength, and can sustain new players for a good while.
  • Due to its short range, it is not advisable to bring into tougher battles, e.g. against bosses.

Trivia[]

  • Despite having sword in the name, this weapon is not a sword, but a spear.
  • Due to how big the sprite of the weapon is, it appears to go through the player's shoulder when attacking with it.
