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.
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 longer range. This katana is efficient for godland farming as well as low-defense enemies that are too dangerous to be attacked at point-blank with the Void Blade. The player will need to get accustomed to the wavy shots, however.
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 invincibility if the target was hit before going invincible. 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. (If two poisons hit the target it will add 333,33 DPS, thus Doku have superior DPS than T13 even in big groups with Berserk/Damaging)
It should be noted that the Kusanagi outdamages the Doku completely, making it a preferable choice for DPS and straight shooting.
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 that release, it was nerfed from its original damage range of 130-150 and its original rate of fire of 125%.
Before Exalt Version 22.214.171.124 (Dec 2020), this item had no poision proc aswell as the following sprites:
Its name translates to “Sword of Poison” from the Japanese kanji “毒の剣.”
