The Stellar Knife is a Hardmode dagger dropped by Aries after Astrum Aureus is defeated. When thrown, it moves and rapidly spins in the direction it was initially thrown, slowly decelerating and losing spin speed over time. Once the knife fully decelerates, it then remains still until an enemy is within its detection range for it to home in.
Performing a stealth strike with the Stellar Knife causes fifteen knives to be thrown instead of one. If more than fifteen knives are present, this effect cannot trigger.
Its best modifier is Unreal.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- Stellar Knives may also be obtained from Astral Crates after Astrum Aureus is defeated.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The tooltip is a reference to the third story arc of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Stardust Crusaders. In it, The World ("Za Warudo") is the time-stopping ability of DIO, which he used to throw volleys of knives which would freeze in midair then fly at an enemy; this is alluded to both by the initial slowness of the knives and the stealth strike volley effect.
