Draconic Destruction's large area of effect. It is more effective against targets below the initial projectile's point of contact.

The Draconic Destruction is a craftable post-Moon Lord developer broadsword that autoswings. When swung, it fires a high-velocity sword beam that pierces infinitely and splits into 8 more sword beams in a circular formation on enemy hits. The split beams move out for a quick moment before erratically flying up and down constantly while spacing away from each other as they travel before dissipating. The sword itself inflicts the Daybroken debuff. The main sword beam inflicts the Dragonfire, Daybroken, Slime, and Oiled debuffs, while the split beams inflict the Dragonfire debuff. The sword beams also ignore NPC immunity frames.

Its best modifier is Legendary.
