When it comes to end game content in Terraria, there’s more than enough work to do. With update 1.14 bringing a ton of new content, it’s up to you to prepare yourself with a worthy weapon. Something that can only be described as the magnum opus of combat. Today, we’re going to go over the best sword and one of the best weapons in the game, along with how to obtain it. Let’s begin.
So, TL;DR – the most powerful sword you can craft is the Zenith. What is considered to be an amalgamation of many cool swords from throughout the game, Zenith is one of Terreria’s best weapons and obliterates any enemy with ease. This is a craftable weapon, so you’ll need to do a few things before you can actually acquire it.
Some of the parts required for the Zenith are only dropped by the Moon Lord, so that means you’re gonna be pressed to level your character to at least his level to craft the weapon. Zenith can easily reach 100k DPS low dif, so it will make quick work of most enemies, exemplary at farming all sorts of bosses to help you with whatever you may need.
Finally, to craft the Zenith, you’re going to need multiple swords that you’ve come across in your adventure thus far. You’ll need all of them ready. These weapons are:
Now, with all ten swords in your inventory, head over to a Mythril or Orichalcum Anvil. You should see the Zenith as a craftable option. Simply just select the Zenith and it will be crafted at the expense of all ten weapons. The Zenith has 190 base melee damage, 6.5 Knockback (Strong), 14% Critical hit chance, a use time of 30, and 32 Velocity. When swung, the sword sprites of its component swords fly towards enemies within a 20-tile radius of the cursor (fricken awesome). This sword is totally anime. Each sword sprite deals the Zenith’s full weapon damage. Definitely better than your average sword.
You can further upgrade the Zenith by applying a modifier to it, the best of which would be a Legendary. By reforging the Zenith with the Goblin Tinkerer, you can apply a random modifier for coins. Although there is no guarantee, this is the best way to acquire Legendary status on the Zenith.
That’s everything! Not much to talk about here, to be honest. If you’re looking for the best sword in the game, the Zenith is pretty much it. With what is basically the highest DPS in the game and having its name literally be Zenith, this weapon is at the top of the food chain. While it’s debatable whether it is the best weapon in the game, it surely is the best sword. In any case, I hope this blog helped you. Have a great day!
