  • These weapons possess a blue glow when the area the player is in is considered to be at night. When wielded, an additional blue particle mist animation occurs around the weapon.
    • During dawn and dusk, the weapons will display their nighttime skin, but will not release their particle effects.
  • Unlike other dungeon weapons, their sigil is "Major" instead of "Superior"
  • Ascalonian ghosts wield these weapons.
  • During beta, there were some low damage versions available called "Royal Ascalonian" weapons. Additionally, they healed the user during the day and stole health during the night. These effects were replaced by sigils and are no longer in-game.
  • These weapons are Account Bound on acquire, and Soulbound on use.


  • Some Seraph soldiers in Lake Doric use polearms with a skin matching the daytime style of this weapon set.
  • During the betas, these skins were named "Ghastly weapons".
