–In game description

Sword of Hades

The Sword of Hades is a two-handed sword only available to players with alignment to Hades. It is unlocked at level 9.


A sword for speed and stealth attacks.


The sword has a cleaver-shaped blade with spikes and purple grooves along it and is made to perform quick and unexpected attacks that set enemies for combos rather than strong blows against them. Its specials can either cover a considerable area and quickly strike more than one foe at once or deliver a surprise leaping strike with focus on a single opponent. Enemies must be aware when a warrior with the Sword of Hades approaches, otherwise they can be sliced to pieces even before having a chance to react.
