Enhancement Item Locations


  • This is the most powerful (magickal damage) one-handed sword that can be gifted or traded to another Pawn.
  • Ascalon is a split damage weapon that attacks both physical and magickal damage thresholds. Arming a character with a high magick stat with this weapon can be very effective since the magickal melee damage threshold is significantly lower than the physical one.
  • Second-most powerful enchanted sword; only Cursed Light is stronger.
  • Although they are NOT the most powerful primary weapons in the game, Holy enchanted weapons like AscalonHeaven's Key , Cursed LightTotem MaceDwells-In-Light, and Angel's Fist are arguably the most useful and versatile weapons to wield since they damage EVERY creature type in the game (except Saurian SagesGiant Saurian Sages ,  Death and the Dark Bishop) and are VERY effective against ghost enemy types, UndeadSkeletonsLiving Armor and the Ur-Dragon. For Death and the Dark Bishop specifically, one can bring along a straight physical damage weapon like Framae BladesDevilsbane, etc.
  • Magic enhancing augments like Acuity and Attunement increase the effectiveness of magic imbued weapons.
  • This weapon has a minimal level 41 requirement without a stamina drain penalty. Any Arisen using this weapon who is below the minimal level 41 requirement will experience RAPID stamina loss with regular attacks, skill usage and running. In addition, stamina recovers at a much slower rate. Just having Ascalon equipped will cause stamina drain when using a Rusted Shield for shield skill attacks if the character is below the minimal level requirement for Ascalon. Presumably, this is a game balancing measure to ensure new players are not given overly powerful weapons from online friends.
  • Due to its permanent Holy enchantment, Ascalon may regenerate the health of the wielder while attacking foes.


  • Ascalon was the name of the sword wielded by Saint George to slay the dragon in the "Golden Legend" of Saint George and the Dragon. The battle took place in the town of "Silene".
