The Teardrop Cleaver is a Pre-Hardmode broadsword that drops from the Eye of Cthulhu. It inflicts the Temporal Sadness debuff upon striking enemies, which reduces enemy contact damage and movement speed.
Its best modifier is Legendary.
- This is a very powerful weapon early game, as the debuff it inflicts effectively stuns most enemies it hits on top of reducing their damage. Even after more powerful weapons are acquired, it may be worth keeping as a sidearm purely for the debuff.
- Its hilt resembles an eye, with the middle of the blade appearing to feature teardrops.
- It's one of the earliest obtainable swords with auto-swing.
