The Bladecrest Oathsword is a Pre-Hardmode melee weapon dropped by Demons and Voodoo Demons in The Underworld or found in an Ashen Chest in the Brimstone Crag. It uses a custom swing animation and fires blood scythes which home into enemies and inflict the On Fire! debuff.

Its best modifier is Godly. It cannot get modifiers that affect size.
