The Soul Edge is a post-Moon Lord broadsword that drops from Eidolon Wyrms after Polterghast is defeated. The Soul Edge's projectiles inflict Crush Depth. When swinging the blade, 2-3 Phantom Spirits will be released and seek out nearby enemies. If no enemies are near they will hover around the player until an enemy gets in range, similar to the Exoblade.

Its best modifier is Legendary.


  • Though it's intended to be obtained after Polterghast has been defeated, it can potentially be obtained far earlier if you were to somehow kill an Adult Eidolon Wyrm after summoning one with a Rod of Discord.
  • The Old Duke takes only 75% damage from the homing phantom spirits created by the Soul Edge.


The Phantom Spirits released by the Soul Edge homing in on the player, and then on a Super Dummy.
