| A magical weapon with three great razor-sharp blades. According to legend, a master forger created a sword with two blades at the facetious suggestion of a knight, who, finding that the resulting blade was quite functional, jovially quipped, "Ah, very good, but could you make a *triple* sword?" When the answer turned out to be yes, the knight was too shocked to ask about the possibilities of a quadruple sword.
"Quemadmodum gladius neminem occidit: occidentus telum est."
-Lucius Annaeus Seneca, _Epistulae Morales ad Lucilium_, Letter LXXXVII: Some arguments in favor of the simple life, l. 30. ca. 65 A.D.
This weapon falls into the 'Long Blades' category. It is a two handed weapon.
Triple swords are the most powerful Long Blades in the game. While they are extremely rare and require considerable skill to use effectively, they are nonetheless excellent for slicing through enemies of all sorts. They do marginally less base damage than an executioner's axe or a bardiche, but also require less skill to reach minimum delay.
- Prior to 0.28, triple swords could riposte, but had 17 base damage. They also reached mindelay at 24 skill (19 base delay).
- In 0.16, claymores were renamed back to triple swords.
- In 0.14, triple swords were renamed to claymores.
