Sword
300px
Skill Type: Combat Skill
Max Level: 60
Skill Trainers: Nelson Ballard, Malvol, Janet Lews


Expertise with swords, rapiers, and the like. Swords are very damaging and can reduce an opponent's rage.

Sword Overview

Sword is typically one of the first combat skills a new player finds, along with Unarmed. Predictably, it requires a sword to be equipped in your main hand. Sword focuses on damage and rage reduction, with a side of armor shred. A well-geared swordsman can completely block a monster from using Rage attacks!

Calligraphy serves as the secondary skill for Sword, and provides various sword combos and special insights.

In-Game Description

Expertise with swords, rapiers, and the like. Swords are very damaging, and can reduce an opponent's Rage.

Training Sword

  • New players learn/obtain Sword by picking up the starting backpack on Anagoge
  • Malvol teaches Decapitate 1-3, Thrusting Blade 1-3, and Heart Piercer 1-4
  • Janet Lews will unlock levels 51-60 and teaches level 51+ abilities

Secondary Skills:

Calligraphy is Sword's secondary skill. Every time you level Calligraphy, you will learn a new recipe. Performing these recipes will give you a combo: if you execute that combo, it will have some extra effect. For example, the first recipe is "Pain: If you execute SwordSlash + SwordSlash + ManyCuts in that order, the final step deals 5 extra damage." Some recipes have passive insights that will be applied for the duration - Pain+ increases all your Direct Slashing damage by 1.
The duration of Calligraphy effects can be extended by performing them on Calligraphy Benches, learned through Carpentry.
