— In-game description

Xiuquatl is a legendary scepter[1] crafted in the Mystic Forge.


Legendary unlock book.png

Hylek of the Astrozintli Forelands revere the life serpent Xiuquatl. While it's too small and gentle to be their savior, those traits make it Tequatl's perfect opposite—and a potent symbol of hope.

This mysterious obelisk houses a winged serpent familiar who will faithfully accompany you in battle.

Contained in[edit]



Xiuquatl is an Aztec-themed scepter, imbued with the spirit of a snake deity. Upon drawing the weapon, the snake materializes next to the wielder of the scepter and follows them. A green aura surrounds the bearer of the weapon. While stowed, the scepter lies dormant and the winged serpent returns to the scepter as an Aztec carving.

  • A green mist covers the user of the scepter.
Draw/Stow effects
  • Upon drawing the weapon, the scepter erupts in green light. Broken shards of the top of the scepter circle it, and the snake materialises.
  • When stowed, the snake dematerialises and the broken pieces repair themselves.
  • Misty green puddles appear on the ground and linger for a while.
