PC Zenith should be master mode exclusive!

A lot of people will disagree with this simply because they don't want to go through master mode to get their beloved OP sword, but there are some good reasons why it should be exclusive.
• As of right now, having the zenith doesn't really mean anything. The sword isn't that hard at all to get. If it were master-mode exclusive, the zenith would actually mean something.
• As a very difficult game mode, there isn't really anything rewarding coming out of it. Making zenith exclusive makes master mode way more rewarding for completing a very challenging playthrough. Now, because the player went through all the work of doing master mode, the player gets something that makes the rest of the bosses way easier in result.
• Theres no real reason to play master mode other than to say you did it. There isn't much replayability. Having zenith as a master-exclusive, there are more reasons to play master mode.

I feel like it just makes sense for Zenith to be master exclusive. It's so powerful, it just doesn't make sense to give it to people who didn't work nearly as hard as you do in master.

Zenith is meant to be a recollection and celebration of your journey in Terraria, taking swords from all points of progression in Terraria. Locking it behind Master Mode isn't in the same vein as Expert items since the sword isn't meant to help you conquer more and more things along Expert mode or commemorate the harder difficulty. It's there to celebrate the journey you had playing Terraria, no matter how difficult it was; there's no point in limiting it since there is no standard content beyond Moon Lord that the Zenith would need to challenge.

The only thing the game needs is ultimate weapons for the other classes, but limiting it like this only subtracts from the experience. It's not like only masters at the game can celebrate their journey. An alternate reward would be more suitable instead, although I believe the cosmetic items from Master Mode are good enough because the mode does little more than stat changes to crank up the intensity.

Master mode is too shallow of a gamemode to be granted an exclusive overpowered weapon, if it were given a rework then maybe I'd support the idea.
