    Fighter with Cursed Light vs Living Armor. One on one duel. No damage.

    Solo Fighter wielding only the Cursed Light sword in the Ward of Regret. The Cursed Light is a balanced, dual damage weapon which assails an enemy's physical and magic defenses. Its permanent Holy enchantment is useful against Ghost-type enemies, the Undead, Skeletons and Living Armor, as seen in this video. Hard mode demonstration with no shield, armor, pawns, buffs, curatives or Wakestones used.

  • Cursed Light 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.
  • Although they are NOT the most powerful primary weapons in the game, Holy enchanted weapons like AscalonHeaven's KeyCursed 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.
  • Minimum character level required for use without stamina penalty: 46. Any character wielding this sword below level 46 will experience increased stamina loss when using regular attacks, skills, or running. Just having Cursed Light equipped will cause this effect, even when using secondary weapon skills with a weapon that has no penalty.
