Okay, I have been holding in this rant for a while, but I just got sick of it.Still it has the same damage of True Excalibur, still needs less damage.
You are saying that, because the copper shortsword is easier to obtain than Excalibur, the true shortsword should be weakened. That argument, while it may SOUND good in your head, becomes just plain silly when you apply it to other weapons.
- The nights edge can be obtained before hardmode, but all hardmode ore swords before you get adamantite are weaker than nights edge, so nights edge should be nerfed.
- Also the nights edge, the NE is easier to obtain than Excalibur, but the true nights edge has the second highest damage of all melee weapons in the game, surpassed only by the Terra Blade, so true nights edge should be nerfed.
- The Terra Blade itself can be obtained earlier than many swords such as the horseman's blade and Christmas tree sword and yet has the highest damage out of all swords, so the Terra Blade should be nerfed.
- The horseman's blade can be obtained more easily than Christmas tree sword, and yet the HB has slightly higher damage, autoswing that the CTS lacks, and as Yrimir demonstrated, can be used with some low-level monster statures and one second timers to kill all of the hardmode bosses at once solo without healing. The horseman's blade as such is massively overpowered and should be nerfed.
Also Rainfall, please un-nerf the shortsword, considering I just tore apart the entire argument of the only person who wanted it nerfed.
