It just simply deserves to be better! What’s so wrong with making it crafted at the blacksmithing bench? Whats so wrong with it trumping Teliths Sorrow? Look at the number of people who have been playing from day 1. It’s minimal! And the sword is no reward for having stuck around!
By Crom, it just needs updating and you might even get those day one players back, buying some dlc, and playing the game again just for the joy of using the sword!
And “If you’re not with me then to HELL with you!”
