Ataxaria being swung. Note the additional spiral of projectiles produced when the Super Dummy is struck with the blade.

Ataraxia is a post-Moon Lord broadsword that autoswings. When swung, Ataraxia fires three rocket-like projectiles, two small and one large, towards the cursor. The larger projectile explodes on impact with a tile or enemy. The smaller projectiles split into several needles on impact, which fly a short distance from the impact point and rapidly damage enemies. When the blade itself strikes a foe, five additional homing projectiles are produced, flying around the target in a flower-like pattern. The homing projectiles may choose to home on a different enemy if many are close by.

Ataraxia, along with all of its projectiles and their explosions, inflict the Shadowflame debuff onto enemies.

Its best modifier is Legendary.
