In-Game Description

Straight sword wielded by Varangians and engraved with a skull.
A former king launched a campaign to capture these terrors of the high seas, but rather than imprison them, forced them into hard labor at No-man's Wharf.
The king, wracked with fear and suspicion, began to see the progenitor of the curse in anything and everything. During his reign, sorcerers in particular suffered dreadful persecution.

Availability[]

Drops from Varangian Sailors in No-man's Wharf.

Characteristics[]

The Varangian Sword is a good blade. It has decent scaling but very low durability and seems to degrade very fast, making Repair Powders or the Repair sorcery almost a necessity.

Utilizing the same moveset as the Broadsword, it is only capable of slashes.
