The Dazzling Stabber Staff is a post-Moon Lord summon weapon that is dropped by Providence, the Profaned Goddess. It summons Holy Blade minions that rally in a cone-formation above the player's head. When enemies are nearby, the blades will dash into enemies and move in an ellipse between hits while leaving behind a purely visual glowing trail.

Its best modifier is Ruthless. The Mythical modifier provides the widest array of stat bonuses, but these primarily affect the initial summon rather than the resulting minion. Additionally, minions cannot deal critical hits. The only lasting advantage a Mythical Dazzling Stabber Staff has over a Ruthless one is knockback.


  • Storm Weaver takes only 50% damage from the Dazzling Stabber Staff.


  • "En garde" is French for "On [your] guard", originally used as a warning term in the sport of fencing.
