General Information[]

Despite its name, this sword is considered a curved sword, not a large sword. This means that despite its size, it swings very quickly. However, its large size does not grant it noticeably longer reach than other curved swords.

Damage output for this weapon is unremarkable, especially as it has very poor scaling and unremarkable base damage. However, it doubles the wielder's item discovery rate, making it the ideal weapon for farming. This bonus is conferred as long as its equipped: even if it in the offhand slot and/or if the wielder does not have the stats to wield it, the benefit is still present.

Since it benefits users with high luck the most, the Large Sword of Searching is a good pairing with the Blueblood Sword for farming.
