The Shining Blade is a legendary sword crafted in the Mystic Forge.

Lore[edit]

Named after the Shining Blade, a human elite force and personal bodyguards of the Krytan monarchy, with its handle shaped like the Shining Blade's emblem. This sword is of Seer origins, gifted to the Shining Blade after their victories over the mursaat during the Krytan civil war, to be used to hunt down the few remaining survivors such as Lazarus. It was then used by Livia to bind the Oath of Confidence ritual she created, and has been housed within the Shining Blade Headquarters since its establishment.

Graphics[edit]

Aura

The wielder's arm is surrounded by a purple shroud.

Draw/Stow effects

Upon drawing the weapon, purple light is channelled and explodes, encasing the swordarm and the weapon itself in their respective auras. Further, the sword's unsheathing mechanism is triggered, expanding the blade, the crossguard, and the handle and shrinking the guard so the handle can be gripped without harming the wielder. In combat, the sword is covered in purple and golden light. Stowed, the crossguard of the sword forms the Shining Blade's emblem, glowing faintly.

Footfalls

The user leaves behind glowing footfalls that consist of the emblem of the Shining Blade. The colour transitions from gold to purple.
