    The Fractured Gemstone Wakizashi is very different from any other wakizashi. Instead of slashing projectiles at the point of your cursor, it spawns a crystal star that orbits the player in a random direction, firing bursts of short-ranged projectiles. The star circles the player at a variable range (averaging at around a sword’s range), completing almost two orbits before it disappears. The wakizashi does not have a cooldown, allowing players to amass a large number of orbiters (provided they have the mana for it).

    With careful movement, the player can position the crystal stars directly on top of enemies as they move, hitting them with all 8 shots to deal massive damage. However, note that the stars will not fire for a short time after being summoned, preventing them from being used as a psuedo-spellbomb.

    Before the item was buffed in Patch X.32.1.0 (Oct 2019), the damage per hit was 250 and the Expose duration was 2.6 seconds.

    Before Exalt Version (Mar 2023), the Crystal Stars did damage on contact instead of firing shots, dealing 350 damage per tick and inflicting Grey Down Arrow Exposed for 4 seconds;.
