The following text contains spoilers relating to the story of Guild Wars 2
is a legendary sword
and ancient holy artifact forged in Orr
, dating back to a time when the the Six
walked among the humans
and lived in the City of Arah
. Its sister sword, Sohothin
, was once Balthazar
's own sword.
At some point in time, Magdaer and Sohothin were given by the gods
as gifts to the Ascalonian
royal line to ensure continued peace. Over time, Ascalonians began crafting duplicates of these two blades, the Fiery Dragon Swords
In the concluding battle of the charr invasion of Ascalon, King Adelbern used the sword to cast the Foefire, an extremely powerful spell formulated by the Six themselves that wiped out the city's invaders and raised the fallen Ascalon Army into spectral undeath, shattering the sword in the process. It is said that if either Magdaer or Sohothin returns to Ascalon City in the hands of the rightful king of Ascalon, then the Ascalonian spirits will finally be put to rest.
In 1325 AE, Eir Stegalkin retrieved Magdaer from the Ascalonian Catacombs, intending to have it reforged for Logan Thackeray. The sword has not been seen since.
- The "spectral" Magdaer that King Adelbern wields shares a skin with Jormag's Breath skin. The actual sword object uses a different model, however, which matches Sohothin's new model created for Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire.
