This star sacrifices quite a bit of range for piercing and potentially massive damage that’s stronger the closer you are to targets. Additionally, the extra +5 defense can be beneficial.
Because of its range, it is not as practical as a tiered star would be in situations where you need distance. 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, and clearing dungeon minions, similar to a quiver.
On release, the Kageboshi used to be dropped by Daichi the Fallen alongside the Wand of the Fallen. A later update moved the drop to the Jade and Garnet Statues, with Daichi dropping the Orb of Aether in its place.
