The Cursed Sword is a sword-type melee weapon that has extremely high DPS and a fast swing rate, but makes the player Cursed Effect.png cursed as long as it is equipped.

Details[]

  • Special Effects:
    • Curses the player while it is carried, killing the player immediately upon taking damage.
      • It is still possible to get curses from other sources, in which case they operate independently from the sword itself.
      • The curse of the sword alone is lifted if the player removes it from their inventory. However, it is impossible to lift it any other way.
    • All hits deal critical damage.
  • Breach Bonus: 0 / 0 / 0
    • Base Breach Damage: 135 / 135 / 200
    • Base Breach DPS: 618
  • Combo Duration: 0.76 seconds
    • First Hit: 0.3
    • Second Hit: 0.16
    • Third Hit: 0.3 (0.15 + 0.15)
  • Tags: NoCritical
  • Legendary Version: Suicide
    • Forced Affix: Run Speed on Kill
      • "Increases your movement speed for 5 seconds after killing an enemy."

Notes[]

  • There is an achievement associated with this weapon called "I like to live dangerously...", which is achieved by completing a run with the sword in possession.
  • The weapon's curse mechanic remains active even if it is merely held in the backpack (and therefore technically not "equipped" in the usual sense). The curse effect can only be escaped by dropping the weapon entirely.
  • Unlike a curse from a cursed chest, equipping it does not prevent the player from using Homunculus Rune Icon.pngHomunculus Rune and does not trigger the crit damage condition of Spite Sword Icon.pngSpite Sword.
  • Ygdar Orus Li Ox Mutation Icon.pngYgdar Orus Li Ox will not be triggered when killed with this weapon in your inventory.
