Writhing Sheath in action.

The Writhing Sheath is a craftable Hardmode Sword Sheath accessory. While equipped, the player will receive the Sheath buff every 3 seconds they do not damage any enemy with a sword; the counter for receiving the buff will reset either by changing to a non-sword item or each time an enemy is successfully struck by a sword strike. With the Writhing Sheath, the Sheath buff spawn 5 void blades that quickly fly towards the player's cursor, dealing damage to all enemies in the way. Each void blade deals 100% of the original sword damage dealt and briefly inflicts the Light Curse debuff.

Only one Sword Sheath accessory can be equipped at a time.
