The Ancient Shiv is a Pre-Hardmode shortsword that is dropped by Dark Casters. Upon killing an enemy with this sword, they will release a small blue aura cloud that has infinite pierce and lingers for 5 seconds. The cloud deals the same amount of damage as the sword itself.
While it has an incredibly short range like most shortswords, it also has auto-swing, rendering it slightly more effective.
Its best modifier is Legendary.
