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 and Mobile versions 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 62.5% 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 7.69% (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).

Trivia[edit | edit source]

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