Walkthrough[edit | edit source]
You automatically get this task when you find a piece of the Blade of the Endless Paths, an ancient weapon. You are tasked with finding the remaining pieces and restoring the weapon.
The pieces are scattered across various levels of the Endless Paths of Od Nua:
|Broken Blade (upper half)||Ornate Sword Hilt||Broken Blade (lower half)||Polished Pommel Stone|
|Level 2 - In the Xaurip camp, hidden in a tent (trapped - requires Mechanics 3 to detect, 1 to disarm)||Level 5 - In the treasure room at the center (requires Mechanics 7 to find hidden switch)||Level 9 - In a hidden room in the south-east corner (requires Mechanics 8 to find hidden switch)||Level 12 - In the southern section on a Mad Vithrack|
|Broken Blade (upper half)||Level 2 – In the Xaurip camp, hidden in a tent (trapped - requires Mechanics 3 to detect, 1 to disarm)|
|Ornate Sword Hilt||Level 5 – In the treasure room at the center (requires Mechanics 7 to find hidden switch)|
|Broken Blade (lower half)||Level 9 – In a hidden room in the south-east corner (requires Mechanics 8 to find hidden switch)|
|Polished Pommel Stone||Level 12 – In the southern section on a Mad Vithrack|
Once you have all four pieces, you need a skilled blacksmith to reforge the weapon for you. Dunstan at Crucible Keep in First Fires can do this. Bring the pieces to him, and you will get the restored weapon: The Blade of the Endless Paths, a powerful estoc.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
- A few unused end state ID's reveal that the Blade of the Endless Paths was to have four different upgrades that could be applied in its crafting by using items looted from powerful creatures slain in the endless paths. This would presumably grant the blade unique enchantments based on the item applied.

Journal[edit | edit source]
|0||The Blade of the Endless Paths|
|10000||A great and ancient weapon has been dismantled, its pieces strewn throughout the Endless Paths of Od Nua. Perhaps if all these pieces can be found again, the weapon can be reforged.|
|1||Find more pieces of the ancient sword|
|10001||While exploring the Endless Paths, I have discovered what appears to be a piece of an ancient sword. Perhaps I can find more such pieces elsewhere in the ruins.|
|20000||I have found a polished stone sphere. It hums with power, and there are markings upon it that suggest it was once set within something.|
|20001||I have found part of a shattered blade. It isn't much use like this - but perhaps it can be reforged if I find the rest of it.|
|20002||I have found both halves of the broken blade.|
|20003||I have found the ornate hilt of a sword. The ornamentation seems to be Aedyran in style, and clearly valuable.|
|2||Forge the blade|
|10002||I have discovered all the broken fragments of the ancient sword. I will need to find a skilled smith to reforge this weapon for me before I can wield it.|
|3||Retrieve the Blade of Endless Paths from Dunstan|
|10003||Dunstan was impressed by my find. He agreed to reforge the Blade of Endless Path for me, and I need only retrieve it once he is finished.|
|-||30001||I have reforged the Blade of the Endless Paths, and applied the spider venom I took from the great spider queen to its surface. The powerful poisons should prove helpful in battle.|
|30002||I have reforged the Blade of the Endless Paths, and used the tentacle I cleaved from the giant Dank Spore in its crafting. The blade is now enchanted with powerful soul energy, which should prove useful in battle.|
|30003||I have reforged the Blade of the Endless Paths, and used the fire gland I took from the drake in its crafting. The blade now burns with drake's fire, which should prove useful in battle.|
|30004||I have reforged the Blade of the Endless Paths, and used the gem I took from the adra animat in its crafting. The blade is tremendously sharp, hewn to a razor's edge. It should prove deadly in battle.|
|No Additional Enchantments|
|30000||I successfully retrieved all the pieces of the Blade of Endless Paths, and had it reforged by the smith Dunstan in Defiance Bay. This powerful weapon should serve me well in my travels.|
