The Chaos Blade provides excellent base damage, scaling and reach for a katana, at relatively low stat requirements. It also features a standard katana moveset. However, it cannot be buffed or infused in any way, meaning some specialized builds will be able to gain more benefit from using one of the buffable or infusable katanas.
Additionally, it damages the wielder every time they hit an opponent. This damage is a set number and is not affected by the wielder's defenses, health or damage dealt, and it will occur even if the target did not take damage from the strike, such as if they were blocking the attack or successfully rolled through it. In longer fights, this may prove fatal to the player if they are not careful. However, equipment such as the Ring of the Evil Eye, Sun Princess Ring, or an off-hand weapon infused with a Blessed Gem, can help with off-setting some of the recoil damage.
