Varangian Spatha in Salt and Sanctuary is a Sword type weapon.
An unembellished longsword of highly-refined crucible steel. The crucible method results in blades of exceptional quality which have long been popular among seafaring warriors for their reliability, and production has expanded in recent years to accommodate the increasingly widespread use of these weapons among heavy infantry and cavalry units in many continental armies."
Notes and Tips:
- At 50 Strength and 50 Dexterity this weapon has an Attack of 85.1 at tier VII.
- 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.
- This sword is worse than the Corsair's Backsword (which scales with strength) as far as DPS goes, but it's the easiest to obtain in the game and has decent dexterity scaling. It can last you well until mid-game, where better options become available.
