Description[]

"The legend of the Battleblade is a common one in the Reikland. It is said to surface during times of great upheaval, bringing a mighty hero to prominence alongside. Thereafter, the sword vanishes into history, and the hero to a lonely death."

- In-game description, Battleblade

Advantages[]

  • Excellent cleave values and fast attack speed make this weapon very effective against hordes.
  • Moderate movement slowdown while blocking and attacking, as well as high dodge count and a large dodge distance bonus combine for high overall mobility.

Disadvantages[]

  • Ideal combos vs. hordes, armoured elites and monsters mix Heavy and Light Attacks in various ways, which makes this weapon slightly hard to use.
  • Getting full use out of this weapon requires taking advantage of its high mobility, while at the same time executing its moderately complex attack patterns. This combines to make this simple-looking sword into a relatively difficult weapon to use.
  • Dealing with armoured enemies can be a struggle with this weapon, due to its low damage against them coupled with its low stagger values.
