Elemental Shiv Blade

The Elemental Shiv is a craftable post-Moon Lord shortsword that autoswings. It fires a homing projectile that can pass through blocks but cannot pierce enemies. Once these projectiles impact an enemy, six magical shivs are summoned off-screen to the left and right-side of the player, flying towards the hit enemy. As with the initial projectile, the summoned shivs will pierce blocks. The initial projectile will fire horizontally to the right or left, until enemies are nearby, which will cause the shots to curve into the enemy. All projectiles inflict the Brimstone Flames, Frostburn, and Holy Flames debuffs.

Its best modifier is Legendary.
