The Black Scythe is a Hardmode radiant weapon that is sold by the Tracker after completing the "Tracker's End" contract. When swung, it will produce a double-edged shadow scythe that spins in a full circle around the player, damaging enemies. Like other Black Weapons, it grants the Darkness Within buff, granting stacking damage for each hit before peaking at 50 stacks. After reaching 50 stacks, it will inflict the Wither debuff on hit enemies.
Upon striking an enemy, the user will gain 2 stacks of Soul Essence.
Tips[edit | edit source]
- It is recommended that you use any Black Weapons along with The Black Cane as the Darkness Within buff that it creates will stack, making it easier to get to 50 stacks.
