Description

All good Barbarian players will choose which weapon class they want to use throughout the entire game. It is wise to do this as you will then know precisely what weapon you want to trade for and you won't waste time saving points and missing out on the damage bonus until you decide.

Lore

Although there are many gifts from the Great and Ancient King Bul-Kathos, the greatest of these is the secret of steel. Raw iron is hardened and made resilient, forged into weapons of honor and power. Most mortal swords are patterned after the blade first wielded by Bul-Kathos himself. Balancing offense with defense, it is the perfect weapon for the defense of Mount Arreat in the coming apocalypse. All Barbarian warriors learn the secrets of steel at an early age, yet few truly master the deadly elegance of the sword. Those few who do often disdain all other weapons.[1]
