Grows stronger with the defeat of Duke Fishron and the Moon Lord
Getting hit by a fish has got to be humiliating.
'Tired of people telling you what you can or cannot use as a weapon? Those days are over! This fish is PURE ACTION!'
The Holy Mackerel is a broadsword available through Fishing in the Ocean during Hardmode. It has a chance to inflict the Humiliated debuff on enemies, and its base damage grows when Duke Fishron and the Moon Lord are defeated. The chance for the item to drop is 1 in 400 divided by the user's Fishing Power. Note that the chance cannot exceed 1 in 30.
Its best modifier is Legendary.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- This item is a direct reference to the weapon of the same name from Team Fortress 2.
- As is the case with the Frying Pan family of items, the fact that this item deals triple damage on a critical hit is a reference to Team Fortress 2, in which critical hits deal triple damage instead of Terraria's double damage critical hits.
