Summons beast scythes around the player in a small circle,
before firing toward the cursor and home in to nearby enemies
The Recitation of the Beast is a craftable post-Moon Lord spell tome that is a direct upgrade to the Demon Scythe. It causes a ring of six homing Beast Scythes to appear around the player that then fly off in the direction of the player's cursor. Beast Scythes inflict several debuffs:
- On Fire! (3 seconds)
- Shadowflame (33.33% chance for 5 seconds)
- Brimstone Flames (33.33% chance for 5 seconds)
- Frostburn (33.33% chance for 5 seconds)
- Exactly one of Shadowflame, Brimstone Flames or Frostburn will be applied each hit.
Its best modifier is Mythical.

- The weapon is a reference to the spell card Great Magic "Devil's Recitation", used by the character Byakuren Hijiri from the Touhou Project series. In turn, the spell card itself is a reference to the Demon God Shinki from a much earlier game in the series, as it resembles the final bullet pattern from her boss fight.
- The tooltip of the weapon reflects this, as Byakuren was sealed in Makai for a thousand years.
