Branding Iron in Salt and Sanctuary is a Sword type weapon.



A machete forged from scavenged materials by a blacksmith stranded on this accursed island. A branding iron of the type used to torture prisoners in the Red Hall of Cages has been hammered flat, sharpened keen and quenched in a bath of salt water and Emberskull ash to produce a blade perpetually bathed in searing flames. Improvised though it may be, this unique weapon provides warriors unskilled in the arcane arts with an invaluable tactical advantage.


Notes and Tips:

  • At 50 Magic and 50 Dexterity this weapon has an Attack of 17.7/83.1 at tier VII.
  • Requires Class 1 Magic
  • Dexterity scaling is negligible on this weapon, giving only +3.0 physical damage at 50 Dexterity.
  • Due to the weapon's low Dexterity scaling, a caster build can use this weapon proficiently without having to spend any levels on Dexterity.
