Boomerang Blades Boomerang Large Blade

Boomerang Returning Blade
This experimental set of dual blades dared to ask the question - what if both the blades were the big one? Unfortunately, the curve of the second blade caused it to fly back towards the user.

The second shot has a smaller range, lowering this weapon true range to 3.6 tiles, even though this shot represents less than half of the weapon damage, it can pierce targets, having its uses when there are too many enemies guarding the target or when crowd control is needed, such as when fighting a Cube God, Skull Shrine or Oryx.

The following comparisons were made considering that the two shots hit and 8/8 characters with wine cellar tops and no exaltations:

This weapon has a poor DPS against 0 DEF enemies, beating the T9 Garnet Blades, but no higher tiered dual blades; It outdamages the T10 Verdant Blades at over 15/19/19 DEF; It outdamages the T11 Occult Blades at over 38/47/47 DEF; It outdamages the T12 Bloodshed Blades at over 67/80/80 DEF; It is always outdamaged by the T13 Moonstone Blades or by the T14 Soulforged Blades at any DEF. Also worth noting that for higher ATT than stated, the worse the Hatchling Blades fares in comparisson with tiered dual blades. It is fair to say that during regular gameplay it is worse than T12 Bloodshed Blades, specially if Grey Down Arrow Exposed is present.

Regarding the utility of the piercing projectile it is arguably the worse piercing weapon available to dagger classes, getting beaten even by the Bone Dagger (only counting the piercing projectile). The Queen’s Stinger outdamages it at over 9/11/11 DEF even counting on both projectiles.
