The Phoenix Blade was a craftable Hardmode broadsword that autoswung. Like the Breaker Blade, it had a very large range, but it also caused explosions and spawned healing orbs when killing enemies. The healing orbs restored 10 health when touched, and disappeared after about 3 seconds or if the orb hit a solid tile. The sword itself was extremely large, larger than the Breaker Blade and many other swords in the game.

Its best modifier was Legendary.
