Sohothin

Rytlock wielding Sohothin.
Sohothin is a legendary sword wielded by the charr hero Rytlock Brimstone. It was once Balthazar's own sword,[1] and like its twin "sister", Magdaer, it is a powerful holy artifact, given to Ascalonian royalty by the Six themselves[2] as a gift of peace. Its last human owner was Prince Rurik, who was killed near the Frost Gate, and whose reanimated corpse was forced to fight for Vizier Khilbron near Abaddon's Mouth. There, Rurik was finally laid to rest, and the volcano erupted soon after. How the sword came into the possession of Rytlock is unknown (though Logan Thackeray accuses him of having looted it from Ascalon).

According to legend, if either this sword or its sister returns to the haunted remains of Ascalon City in the hands of the rightful king of Ascalon, the ghosts there will finally be laid to rest.
