Swords are one-handed melee weapons in Pillars of Eternity. They have a moderate attack speed, and deal a moderate amount of Slash or Pierce damage (best of).


Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.

Whether single-edged or double-edged, swords are always straight-bladed one-handed weapons that can be used to cut or thrust at an enemy. In some circumstances, swords lack the raw slashing power of sabres, but they are more flexible against a variety of armor types.
