Where to acquireEdit

When compared to other +1 weapons available in Baldur's Gate, there are not many opportunities to gain this weapon early, as Arghain in Area North of Carnival drops this. The other opportunities to gain this weapon are from seven skeleton warriors, which are quite powerful and they may only be found in Durlag's Tower or in two areas which can only be accessed during the last chapter of the game. Three of these skeletons are at the first underground floor of Durlag's Tower. The other four are spread evenly in the last two available areas.

The two handed sword is a derivative of the long sword. Weaponsmiths have always looked for ways to improve existing weapons. In an effort to improve the long sword, the blade was lengthened. Eventually, the handle had to be extended and two hands became necessary to properly swing the sword. The primary function of two-handed swords is cleaving mounted knights and breaking up pike formations. This one has been enchanted with a few magical properties.
