This weapon deals primarily Slash b Slash damage.


  • High damage.
  • High status chance.
  • Long attack reach.
  • Slam attack has an innate chance to trigger a Toxin b Toxin proc on the target as well as knockdowns targets for about 5-7 meters.
  • Has a Madurai Pol polarity slot.
  • Stance slot has Madurai Pol polarity, matches Defiled Snapdragon stance.
  • Relatively balanced physical damage types compared to most other melee weapons allows for use as an all-round weapon.


  • Lower Impact b Impact and Puncture b Puncture damage – less effective against shields and heavy armor.
  • Awkward attack animations cause the player to move slowly due to uninterruptible movesets when used as active melee.


  • Blade and whip weapons possess dramatically different quick-melee and equipped-melee movesets.
    • Quick-melee attacks only utilize the sword portion of the weapon, resulting in lower range but slightly faster attack speed.
      • The second attack in a charged combo performs three advancing strikes in quick succession.
    • While equipped, the Mios performs a spinning attack combo where it throws its whip end after an initial slashing attack. Enemies caught by the whip will be pulled towards the player in a manner similar to Rip Line, and inflicted a guaranteed Slash b Slash proc.
      • The range of the whip attack is affected by Reach, however the attack will only pull enemies that are within the unmodified attack range of 10 meters.
      • The whip swings in an arcing motion and can hit multiple enemies, allowing for small-area crowd control.
  • The Mios' ground attack has an unknown chance of inflicting a Toxin b Toxin proc on an enemy target, regardless of any elemental damage mods on the weapon.


  • The Mios was designed and submitted by the player RedSkittlez for the Community Melee Weapon Contest.
  • The Mios took more than an entire year to be fully developed, being one of the longest weapons in production to be added to the game.
  • The Blade and Whip weapon type as a whole is somewhat similar to a Kusarigama or its predecessor the Kyoketsu-shoge, both of which were bladed weapons with a chain attached to the other end of the handle. In both cases however the chain was typically used to immobilize or disarm an enemy rather than directly attack the target.
  • The entire weapon is comprised of 2 different blades. The top has a socket that fits into the main bladed part, which increases the visual reach of the weapon.


  • The Mios will sometimes do a charge attack animation after a successful stealth attack, which will slow the player down (as they are forced to do the attack animation in full) or hit nearby enemies, alerting them in the process.
  • The Mios currently uses the Lacera's cord to connect the hook to the blade.


  • Mios in Codex.
  • Trinity's Mios
