The sword of Cerebov is the fixedart 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.


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.


The sword of Cerebov was upgraded significantly in 0.13. Its base type was originally a great sword (which had one less base accuracy and damage), and its special effect only ignored fire resistance when calculating the sword's own damage.
