The Asthenos is a craftable Hardmode broadsword. A convective upgrade of the Fiery Greatsword, it functions fairly traditionally but is most notable for its incredible size, being much larger than any vanilla sword. Each hit applies an additional 1.25 seconds of the Incinerating debuff, which deals rapid damage that increases the longer its duration. Each hit also inflicts 3 seconds of Melting, halving enemy contact damage.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- It is named after the asthenosphere, the partially-molten uppermost layer of the Earth's mantle.
- Because the Melting debuff is not applied to players, its sprite and tooltip are both placeholders. It shares its sprite with Incinerating, and its tooltip, "'I'm melting! Melting!'", is a reference to The Wizard of Oz.
