    The Bangellian Scourge, by far. But if we count hammers as well, the Scourge get's tied for the first place with the Iron Clan hammer. Love that hammer.

    Katana is good, except if you want to go against elementals.

    Anyway, my favourite sport is to run with Bangellian Scourge after Fire Elementals, naked.

    The sword that you get in the pit on the Isle of despair.

    Frigo, I'm starting to like you more and more. I'd like to chase some Elementals naked, too. I'll do it right away.

    Katanas work really well for a start. The Balanced for techies, of course, and my favourite, the Arcane Great Sword. The problem with that is the MSR, but meh, when I find it I'm strong enough to pick it up plus a shield.

    Why katanas? The usual Quality Broadswords are some of the best, and if that won't do then there's always the Barbarians Heavy Blade. The both of them beat the Katana by far.

    You sick, sick man... I mean boy! Do you really think a barbarian would defeat a samurai or a ninja? It seems your stupidity knows no bounds.

    'Course he would! Ninjas and those guys in all their glory, but a real and pure Swedish Berserk would squish their filthy little boddies any day of the week.

    Hahaha, like a barbarian could even move a finger before a samurai/ninja cut his head off.

    Barbarians are just too clank-clank. It's the stealthy ninjas that'll kick your ass without your noticing.

    And in terms of MSR, quality broadswords are not for beginners.

    For me speed is most important in my sword choice, almost as much as damage. But i have to admit the dagger of speed sucks bad.

    Hey where do you get the Arcane great sword?

    I've always been partial to the balanced sword for its pure speed. I also like the charged sword and the special sword that you get in the pit from the Isle of Despair.

    Kryggyrd's falchion, in the void, is better than any other sword in the game. It's non-magical, however, so you may decide to keep the bangellian scourge. I prefer the Falchion because i end up using techie characters more than anything else. It has an attack range of 20-55, or something disgusting like that.

    I've always found the Arcane great sword in The Bog or the Ancient Maze. It looks just like the Mystic Great Sword, and I think that those items tend to appear in Mystic chests.

    For Ogres - Kryggyrd's Sword, but it appears too late. Sometimes I like to use Thread Sword.

    Bunny, is that sword in a closed area?

    If I remember correctly, I clicked about 200 times when the game finally surrendered, and I climbed the wall.

    But it was at least half a year ago, so I am not sure...

    The filament sword ain't bad either. But usually I equip everyone with balanced swords, because of the speed, keeping the sword you get in the pit on the Isle of Depair for myself.
