The Empyrean Knives are a craftable post-Moon Lord melee weapon that are a direct upgrade to the Vampire Knives. When used, the player throws a spread of 4 to 8 homing knives, each dealing damage and healing the player for 0.75% of the damage dealt. The knives can bounce off of walls twice and travel much farther than the Vampire Knives before spinning and fading away.

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