Endgame shortswords technically exist. Flails such as the Flairion and the Solar Eruption function in a similar manner to revamped shortswords. Also, Broadswords are far superior regardless.I really hope shortswords become an actual thing this update both in power and in progression. This change is cool but I think they could use at least a range buff if not damage as well. Or maybe some dedicated accessories for a shortsword subclass similar to yoyos. Point is, give me some endgame shortswords and I will absolutely run at the moon lord with them haha.
