An interesting star that grants Red Down Arrow Slowed and Red Sword Berserk instead of the usual Green Up Arrow Speedy, which works wonders in solo play considering the Ninja’s already impressive DPS. The actual projectile is stronger and costs less MP than the Dynastic Star, with much more range (but less damage) than the Kageboshi.

Despite initially seeming like a downside, Slow can actually work in the Ninja’s favor. Being able to slow yourself on command can be a godsend in fights where precise dodging is required, such as during bullet-hellish bosses like the Marble Colossus, Killer Bee Queen, and (coincidentally) the Crystal Entity. However, keep in mind that the star’s MP drain is twice as much as tiered stars, making sustaining its ability for a long time more difficult.

If you are inflicted with an item that purifies (mainly Holy Water), the Slow will be cured while halving MP drain from 20mp/s to 10mp/s. This is likely a glitch.

Prior to Exalt Version (Mar 2023), this item did not grant any On Equip bonus and dealt 1000-1500 damage.
