This Katana does not shoot a straight shot; the shots move in a sine wave pattern, but they will true at the middle and end of the range.
Without the poison burst, it strongly rivals the DPS of the Masamune, but stands no chance against stronger UTs like the Celestial Blade. Although only doing slightly more DPS than the Masamune, it can be helpful due to its longer range. However, the player will need to get accustomed to the wavy shot.
As of Exalt Version 18.104.22.168 (Dec 2020), the Doku also possesses a secondary poison burst that detonates every 3 seconds while firing, poisoning enemies for a significant amount of damage that ignores defense and even invulnerability if the target was hit before going invulnerable. Because of its large radius and rather frequent activation rate, this ability gives Doku even greater crowd-clearing abilities while boosting its DPS against single targets.
With two poisons hitting the target, it will add 333.33 DPS, giving Doku an edge over the Sadamune until 119/180 DEF (50/95 with Berserk and Damaging). Keep in mind, however, that this requires timing to properly apply each poison; additionally, the wavy shot pattern may make some shots miss, as opposed to Sadamune’s more reliable straight shot.
On a Ninja, Kusanagi outdamages the Doku completely, making it a preferable choice for DPS and straight shooting. In contrast, on a Samurai, Doku outdamages the respective T14 until 29 DEF.
This katana was considered the best katana in the game before Patch 27.7.X10.3 (Feb 2017), because its DPS and range clearly beat out the Masamune. In said release, it was nerfed from its original damage range of 130-150 and its original rate of fire of 125% to their current values.
Before Exalt Version 22.214.171.124 (Dec 2020), this item had no poison proc, and had the following sprites:
Before Exalt Version 126.96.36.199 (Aug 2021), this item was soulbound.
Before Exalt Version 188.8.131.52 (Mar 2022), this item dealt 120-150 damage.
Its name translates to “Sword of Poison” from the Japanese kanji “毒の剣.”
