Sword of Cerebov
|Eerie flames cover its twisted blade. Its demonic power burns away some of the defender's fire resistance.|
+6, +6 modified great sword (17 damage, -2 accuracy, 160% speed)
The sword of Cerebov is the fixedart great sword wielded by the unique Pandemonium lord Cerebov. Foes struck by the sword temporarily have their fire resistance reduced by one, which can make even fire-immune enemies vulnerable.
As compared to a claymore of freezing, at high skills this sword will have slightly lower raw damage. However, a larger portion of its damage will be due to the AC-bypassing flaming brand, meaning that this sword's performance will be comparable or even slightly better on average. Still, in general, this sword is more often carried as a prize than actually used, since most characters who can defeat Cerebov already have their endgame weapons.
In 0.13, the rF- mechanic was added; before the sword only reduced fire immunity on its own hits. It was also a plain great sword instead of a slightly enhanced one (+1 damage and accuracy).
