Steel Centipede in Salt and Sanctuary is a Sword Whip type weapon.



An elaborate ceremonial sword composed of multiple segments with hollow cores held together from within by a loose steel chain. The interlocking segments can be released by a trigger in the hilt to form a bladed whip, providing a dramatic increase in range. Named for its resemblance to a venomous arthropod feared throughout the Western continents as an omen of death, this weapon was first employed in Tristin during Duke Carsejaw's political purges for the public execution of convicted witches by flogging.


Notes and Tips:

  • At 50 Dexterity this weapon has an Attack of 93.2 at tier VII.
  • Only requires Class 2 Whip to be usable.
  • Whip attack on Heavy Attack, but only while one-handing.

        So for this weapon, would I need to increase my whip level and sword level on the skill tree for it to do more damage or should I just upgrade my sword skill?

        • Transform into a whip?19 Mar 2016 08:20  

          The description makes it sound like it can be used like a whip. But it seems to only act like a sword. Is there anyway to transform it?
