| A long single-edged sword with a slightly curved blade.
"I have seen the day, with my good biting falchion
-William Shakespeare, _King Leare_, V, iii. 1608.
This weapon falls into the Long Blades category. It is a one handed weapon, and it is better for the dexterous.
The falchion is the lightest of the long blades, dealing less damage than the others in exchange for a slight boost to accuracy. Unless you find an exceptionally useful artifact falchion, you should really be using something else.
- The falchion's base damage was reduced to 7 when riposte was added in 0.19, then buffed back when riposte was removed from long blades in 0.28.
