Notes
This star sacrifices quite a bit of damage and range for piercing and a lower MP cost. Because of this, it is not as practical as a tiered star would be in many situations. However, it can be useful when it is difficult to directly hit a specific target due to surrounding minions, like in the Wine Cellar, Cube God, Skull Shrine, Septavius’ first phase, and clearing dungeon minions, similarly to a quiver. It is pretty much an extra katana shot with a bit more range and damage.
Additionally, the extra 2 defense is useful as a passive bonus for situations where the additional damage of a star isn’t as necessary.

Its name roughly translates to “Shadow Star” in Japanese. (影星)
