Ascalonian Catacombs (story)
Magdaer is a legendary sword of Orrian origin, dating back to a time when the Six Human Gods walked among the humans and lived in the City of Arah. At some point, Magdaer and its sister, Sohothin, were given as gifts to the Ascalonian royal line to ensure continued peace.

In the concluding battle of the charr invasion of Ascalon, King Adelbern used the sword to cast the Foefire, an extremely powerful spell 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 uses a different model, however.
  • Fiery Dragon Swords, crafted by Ascalonians, were made in the image of Magdaer and Sohothin.
