Sabre of swiftness ( ( )
Item Type Melee weapon

Weight 30s
Danger Level 7
Material Iron

Sabres of swiftness are a rare type of one-handed melee weapons in ADOM. They belong to the Swords weapon group, and train and benefit from the corresponding weapon skill. Damage-wise they are equivalent to normal iron sabres, but they also grant a +8 bonus to speed.


Somewhat useful for the speed boost, but not very good as a weapon long-term due to the low damage.
