The Devil's Devastation being swung.

The Devil's Devastation is a craftable post-Moon Lord broadsword that autoswings and is the final upgrade to the Devastation and the Exalted Oathblade. When swung, it fires spreads of three purple demon scythes in the cursor's direction and launches three pitchforks from below towards the cursor's location that pass through tiles and explode on enemy contact. Critical hits with the sword cause a purple explosion that deals 400% of the weapon's damage. Both the sword and its projectiles inflict the On Fire! and Shadowflame debuffs.

Its best modifier is Legendary.
