The Hellkite is a craftable Hardmode broadsword that auto-swings and is the direct upgrade to the Fiery Greatsword. It is larger than most other swords of its tier, and upon hitting an enemy it inflicts the On Fire! debuff and summons a damaging geyser of flame. The flame geyser deals the same damage as the sword, and can only damage the enemy that it was summoned from.
Its best modifier is Legendary.
- The word "hellkite" refers to a fiercely cruel person.
- This weapon may be named after the Hellkite Dragon miniboss from the game Dark Souls, or the Hellkite breed of dragons from the game Magic: The Gathering.
