This is an article about short swords. For long swords, see the Longsword article
Swords, sometimes called Shortswords, are fast stabbing weapons and are stronger than daggers. While a sword is best at stabbing, players can also use it as a slashing weapon. It is generally a good weapon with all-round stats and isn't too expensive.
Swords aren't often used by players, as most prefer the stronger but slower longsword.
Players used to receive a Bronze sword from Vannaka on Tutorial Island, which was kept when the player was transported to the mainland. Now, they receive a different sword with identical stats, called the training sword, during the Learning the Ropes quest.
