Soulseeker is a powerful Tier 4 unique broadsword. This is the only 1-Handed broadsword in the game. Like the Firestorm's Fury, it cannot combo.

The design was submitted by a solarium tier pre-order backer, who was granted the ability to design a weapon to be included in the game.

The weapon's long description reads as follows: "A sword of extraordinary dark power, once used by a powerful soul."

It has a glowing orb in the handle that emits fiery particles while it's held.

The Soulseeker's attack is a simple melee slash which has a fire time of 1.33, a base DPS of 17.5 and a knockback power of 30 (strong knockback), producing a slash power of 23.275.

When upgraded at a Weapon Upgrade Anvil to tier 6, the melee slash's base DPS increases to 24.5, producing a new slash power of 32.585. Additionally, the Soulseeker's appearance changes to the one shown below.

Apart from the addition of a gold star to the name, no other changes occur as a result of the upgrade.


The name and description of this weapon shares some similarities to that of the Soul Guise Helmet (namely the inclusion of the word 'Soul' in each name, and the shared sentence structure of "A <item> of extraordinary dark power, ..."), implying that both of these items maybe have been submitted by the same backer.
