It's okay, but now I really want a fire sword.


The Brightshade Sword is a weapon exclusive to Don't Starve Together, introduced in From Beyond. It can only be crafted while next to the Brightsmithy, requiring 4 Pure Brilliance and 3 Brightshade Husks to craft.

The Brightshade Sword deals 38 standard damage and 30 Planar Damage for a total of 68 damage. The sword also deals +10% more standard damage and 10% more planar damage to Shadow Aligned creatures, for a total of 74.8 damage. Planar damage pierces through the protection of worn armor and planar entity protection.

If the Brightshade Helm is equipped, the Brightshade Sword deals +10% standard damage and an additional +5 planar damage for a total of 76.8 damage (or 84.5 damage to shadow creatures). Therefore, equiping the helm turns the Brightshade Sword into the strongest general purpose melee weapon in the game, except for Wanda's Alarming Clock.

Wormwood with the Lunar Guardian II.pngLunar Guardian II Skill has a 20% chance to spawn a vine that deals 70 physical and 15 planar damage when attacking with the Brightshade Sword.

When the Brightshade Sword's durability reaches 0%, it does not disappear; instead, it is unequipped and can no longer be equipped until repaired. It can be fully repaired by one Brightshade Repair Kit.

Placeholder.png Trivia

  • While it appears as a sword made of light, the Brightshade Sword is not a light source like the Morning Star, nor does it prevent damage from Darkness like the Brightshade Helm.
  • Wilson's quote for the Brightshade Sword is a reference to Lightsabers, laser melee weapons in the Star Wars franchise that make a distinct sound. People playing with prop/toy lightsabers often mimic their sound.
