Scharfrichter in Salt and Sanctuary is a Greatsword type weapon.


A deceptively lightweight blade of matte carbon. Commissioned by the pretender Duke Carsejaw of Tristin for ceremonial executions, its finely-honed edge is so sharp that the very fabric of space seems to part before it. Though the bar sinister on his coat of arms did not prevent Carsejaw from winning the hearts of Tristin's populace, the shame of his illegitimate lineage is widely speculated to have driven his subsequent decades-long hunt for a scapegoat.


Notes and Tips:

  • At 50 STR this weapon will have an Attack of 153.7.
  • Two-handing a weapon increases Strength by 50% for damage scaling, meaning you only need 34 Strength to reach the 50 Strength soft cap when two-handing a weapon.
  • Has higher scaling than the trinity greatsword.
  • Strong Attack does more damage one-handed than two-handed, and considering the attack speed it can deal alot of burst damage to enemies weak to slash, just take care of the long recovery animation.

        • Greatsword or Greatscissor?23 May 2016 23:21  

          So is this sword a Greatsword class or Greatscissor? Been debating on what Greatsword to use since I only get one chance, and there seems to be a bit of conflicting information between the wiki and comments. Also is the Northern Cross the highest Greatscissor option?

          • Information for the wiki05 Apr 2016 07:11  

            I made a video in which I upgrade the Scharfrichter from level one to level seven in one go. Since anything I add to the wiki just gets deleted, the appropriate person can use this video to add information about the required upgrade materials (drowned) and the specifics of the weapon at each level. <br/><br/>

              I have the materials, but it's not showing up in the Transmute menu. I currently have Jaws of Death 7 and want to change it to the Scharfrichter. What am I missing ?
