The Sylvan Slasher is a post-Moon Lord rogue weapon that is bought from the Bandit for 5 Platinum Coin after Providence, the Profaned Goddess has been defeated. When used, it creates a small barrage of slashes at the cursor's position that are visually similar to the Arkhalis. Rogue stealth builds up with each slash that hits an enemy, at a rate of 50 stealth per second. When striking enemies, sword waves have a chance to be released, which travel opposite to the player's direction relative to the cursor.

The weapon does not consume stealth and does not have a stealth strike effect.

Its best modifier is Flawless.


  • Stealth can only be raised from hitting enemies that have a damage stat of 5 or higher or when hitting bosses, as such it does not work on the Target Dummy nor Super Dummy. It also will not generate stealth when attacking enemies spawned from Statues.
  • The amount of stealth built per strike is 5 units of stealth, and the weapon can strike 10 times per second, giving it a stealth gain rate of 50 stealth per second.
  • This weapon does not benefit from the effects of the Invisibility Potion or the Shadow Potion.
