A sacred blade from the forges of Heaven, inhabited by a good spirit. It is a favoured weapon of the Shining One's servants, and cannot be wielded by the forces of evil.
This weapon falls into the 'Long Blades' category. It is a one handed weapon, and it is better for the dexterous.

The eudemon blade, like the sacred scourge and trishula, is a demonic weapon that has been blessed by the Shining One, rendering it slightly more powerful than the demon blade it once was and imbuing it with the holy wrath brand. It is an effective weapon in the end game, where most major threats are vulnerable to its holy damage.

Eudemon blades are occasionally carried by hostile angels and daevas, but you can also create your own eudemon blade by having the Shining One bless a demon blade at his altar after achieving full piety.

You can turn a eudemon blade into a demon blade by using Kiku's or Lugonu's final ability to replace its brand with pain or distortion, though this is rarely a good trade.
