Balduran's Giantslayer Greatsword

Category iconLore

Wielded by Balduran, the founder of Baldur’s Gate and friend to his guardian dragon, a great glittering wyrm called Ansur. Fellowship can be undone, though, as easily as you or I might unlace the strings of our shoes, and it was in a time of skullduggery and hardship that Balduran killed Ansur, carrying out the deed with this sword.

Category iconDescription

"Balduran's Giantslayer" iconBalduran’s Giantslayer, a legendary greatsword, stands as a beacon of martial prowess and history. This formidable weapon is a legendary, highly enchanted (+3) variant from the "Greatsword" iconGreatswords family, intended for two-handed wielders who seek to vanquish foes with unmatched power. Wielded by Balduran himself, the esteemed founder of Baldur’s Gate, this greatsword was once inextricably linked to a guardian dragon named Ansur, a magnificent wyrm. However, the bonds of fellowship can falter, and so it was that Balduran found himself enacting a grave act of betrayal, slaying Ansur with this very sword during a time of treachery and adversity.
