Notes Edit

  • 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 is the most powerful sword that can be gifted or traded to another pawn. Beware that lower level characters consume significantly more stamina when using high level weapons like Ascalon. Presumably, this is a game balancing measure to ensure new players are not given overly powerful weapons from online friends.
  • This weapon has an undetermined minimal level stamina drain. Any Arisen using this weapon who is below its minimal level 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.

TriviaEdit

  • Ascalon was the name of the sword Saint George used to slay a dragon in legend.
  • Due to its permanent Holy Enchantment, attacking foes with Ascalon can cause small portions of health to be re-gained.
