Item Story

This is proof that you came to this world via special means.
Only one who has challenged the "world" may wield such a sword.

When this sword was last drawn, humankind was trying to preserve a doomed world.
That world was their last and only home.
This sword was drawn to defy that fate of destruction.
—But to draw steel against the law of universe that "all who exist must one day perish..."
Surely it must have seemed the height of folly.

But really, when one is faced when such a final fate, when up against the star-devouring darkness,
What weapon would be fitting for one to wield? It can only be a sword.
If nothing else, it shall bear the memory of those who faced their ends without fear...

When you wield this sword, you search for the answers hidden within this world.
In this world, such a weapon may be used without any problem.
Not for the fact that the universe casts no shadows here, and certainly not simply because it suits this world's aesthetics...
But because this search is perhaps why you descended to this realm in the first place.

When the past is dust, and the future arrives,
As the present fades away, you can trust to this blade's edge.
Having a weapon for self-defense is, of course, a good idea. After all, this one was forged for one such as yourself.
Someone who challenges and pursues.
Take it, walk this earth,

And cut open all the challenges and mysteries that it has to offer you.

    why tf this weapon has stats of 3* weapon

    These weapons are def designed to be starter weapons. They fall off considerably once your characters and weapons get to about level 60-70.

  1. I’m starting to worry about these weapons with platform exclusive passives… Good thing this and Aloy’s weapon don’t seem to be THAT good but idk… I just hope they don’t release a pretty good/broken weapon and the passive ends up being exclusive for just one platform.

      It seems like the weapons they release as exclusives are almost designed to be early game type weapons. Like this sword and Aloy’s bow are decent if you’re a new player starting out but quickly becomes irrelevant once you have characters reaching level 70+. Tbh I think it’s pointless to have weapons like that, but at least it doesn’t make things unfair for non-PS players.

    I just linked my PC account to my PSN account (never played on PS before) and got the wings and sword today as I was preparing to get the early Aloy 😛

        hey i have a question, the next patch, 2.1, we’ll get Aloy and a 5 star bow by login with ps4, do we have to wait for 24 hours for the next login on PC ? or we can just switch immediately?

    feel like this is a bad weapon that could be awesome with refinements, if it increased the travelers base attack by a more notable amount at r5. wonder if we’ll ever see it

    An interesting sword with an interesting back story. Hmm, who know, maybe one day we might see each other again

    just hoping the refinement increase 66 too.. so we get 440 + 330 r5 + 35,2 .. maybe it would be worth to real traveler user

    The sword with the best design (in my opinion) and the worst stats in the game, has attack% too low, the passive is the same as the Fillet Blade, but in area and with less damage and less cooldown, Mihoyo this weapon need a buff or downgrade to 3 stars.

      Ah yes degrade it to 3 star even tho 1 it’s a limited item and the rarity doesn’t matter and 2 the values match closely to 4 star weapons when equipped on traveller

        I agree with you in the first half about it being a limited time making it a 4 star. The atk increase on traveler can make make the atk% feel like a 4 star but if you look at a another atk% 4 star like the lion’s roar, it has higher base atk than the sword of descension even when put on traveller and also the attack percent is also higher than descension. but what make this weapon so bad is the fact that you cannot even refine it because the effect is stuck at a 200% while the fillet blade can go up to 400% making it considerably weaker than the fillet blade which is a 3 star. Hope this helps you understand why people trash on this weapon so much.

        Though I would say that this weapon is good when you first start the game with nothing, but this weapon quickly falls off the later in the game you go

    Not that sad. The weapon has terrible stats. Not very useful.
    Its just a souvenir.

        Technically, not true if you’re using this on the Traveler, giving it a decent 506 Base ATK at LV90 and a (comparatively) massive 105 Base ATK at LV1. That said, I don’t know if this would be the best weapon for them.

          Lvl 90 traveller and this sword only gets 652 base atk. Both traveller and this weapon suck. The 66 atk increase is pretty bad too.

    I’ve seen this sword on this website and just saw it in the live game archive. How do we obtain this sword in game ??

    1. Limited to PS4 launch sadly.

      This sword was only obtainable as a preregistration reward for PS4 Travelers. It is not possible to obtain through any other method, making it exclusive to PS4 Traveler
