This powerful sword outdamages all tiered swords, all tiered flails, and the majority of untiered swords. Divinity deals more single-target DPS, but only if you aren’t berserked. In addition, it has a range of 4.5 tiles, much higher than its alternatives.

The catch is the odd firing pattern of the sword. It curves outwards before curving back, which makes it hard to aim properly. In order to hit all shots, you must either 1. keep enemies within the sword’s max range, or 2. sit on them.

  • In certain fights, like in The Shatters, it may be next-to-impossible to aim this sword properly.
  • Knights can struggle with this sword, as shields short of Oryx’s Escutcheon do not reach the Colo’s optimal range.
  • This sword’s shots are altered by the Bard’s Inspired Icon Inspired “buff”. If you are in a group with an inconsistent or particularly devious Bard, this sword may be too impractical to use.

Even with the downside, it is still a remarkable sword. With good awareness of spacing and character movement, this sword becomes a clear-cut winner over all swords (except for short-range swords like the Demon Blade). But if you find yourself missing a decent number of shots, the Sword of Majesty might be a more reliable alternative.

Prior to Patch X.26.0.0 (May 2018), the sword had an Amplitude of 1 and had the following sprite:
