This katana outshines nearly all others at first glance. Its damage per shot is only surpassed by the Void Blade and the Blade of Ages, it has the extended range of the Doku no Ken, and surprisingly does not have a RoF penalty. However, it does not pierce, making it next to useless for large crowds of enemies that Katana classes normally excel at cutting down. Because of this, players should take care to keep a piercing swapout in case they need crowd control. However, against single enemies, this weapon is almost unrivaled.
This katana has a very interesting history. It was originally accidentally released in Release 11 along with the Lair of Draconis as a drop from the original black dragon named Thanatos. However, in a duping hotfix, it was transformed into the Useless Katana, which still exists to this day.
When the Lair of Draconis was officially released in Release 22, a new version of the weapon, renamed to Annoying Firecracker Katana, dropped from the new version of the black dragon named Feargus. The firecracker katana was considered a heavy nerf from the Celestial Blade because of its short effective range, shorter true range, and the fact that it only barely outdamaged the Doku No Ken until about 5 defense.
In Release 27.7.X10.3, the Annoying Firecracker Katana was changed to the Sullen Blade, which had a much higher damage output and a longer effective range, making it much more viable, if not more practical.
In Build X.31.8.0, this weapon was re-added to the game with almost no changes to its former stats, though its amplitude was lowered from 1.0 to 0.65, meaning the shots spread out less as they travel, thus giving the weapon a higher true range. The Sullen Blade was replaced when the Lair of Draconis dungeon rework was released.
