In primitive cultures, short swords are scoffed at as little more than knives. However, in the Hyborian cultures such as Aquilonia or Nemedia, where shield walls and cavalry charges have become a reality of combat, short swords are prized for their ability to thrust and stab in spaces where no longsword could ever be wielded.
Because they are smaller and weigh less than other weapons, short swords are also faster to use and consume less stamina than their larger counterparts.
- Bane of the Dead applies the Undead Bane debuff to Undead enemy types. This effect is similar to the Specter Coating, applying a poison like DoT to Undead enemies only.
- This effect is also present on the Gravebane mace.
- This weapon can only be obtained on the Isle of Siptah DLC map using the Delving Bench, a Star Metal Short Sword, and Eldarium.
