This Katana does not shoot a straight shot, it moves left to right while being fired, but it will meet up at the end of the range. Its name, a straight romanization of “毒の剣,” translates to “Sword of Poison” in Japanese.
Formally, this katana was ironically the best katana in the game, with its dps and range clearly beating Masamune, however after the nerf, is now strongly rivaling the dps of the newly buffed Masamune and stands no chance against point-blank weapons such as the Void Blade and the newly buffed Sullen Blade.
Although only doing slightly more dps than the Masamune up to 43 defense, this katana can still be one of the best due to its higher range and wavy shots making it easier to hit enemies still being retained. This katana is most efficient for godland farming as well as low-defensed enemies that are too dangerous to be attacked at point-blank with the void blade or sullen blade.
