Very effective against blobs, molds and plants, but not much else. A sickle is normally 70 % less damaging than a typical shortsword, partly because of its slower speed. It is much lighter than a shortsword. It is 35 % less effective against larger foes than against others. You will find it pretty simple to use.
- Sickles are very efficient against Wood Golems, which are somehow considered as plants!
- When you kill blobs, molds and plants with a sickle you always collect the goo of blob and molds and probably whatever plants give.
