Sword of Cerebov
|A twisted blade, covered in eerie flames. Its demonic power burns away some of the fire resistance of those it strikes.|
+6 flamberge (17 damage, -2 accuracy, 160% speed, two-handed)
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 +6 triple sword of flaming, this sword has lower base damage but will do more damage from its brand. It will do slightly more damage against foes with rF+, but less against non-resistant foes or ones with rF++ and above. 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 resistance to its own damage. It was also a plain great sword instead of a slightly enhanced one (+1 damage and accuracy).
