I found this sword in the wiki and wanted it! It's a Legendary Two Hander, but it's not just a kill a dude and get it weapon, as marching in to this encounter leaves you with an underpowered weapon.

 

Enjoy the swoosh!

it's more of a "let OTHER dudes kill a dude, THEN you kill those dudes"

... and get a weapon ;)

I love the textures on that sword, btw.  translucent blood red glass. 

oh, btw, while there is a copy of the book that talks about the cult of sanguine in Arkemyr's library, you can find it as a random book in other places too.  I had 4 copies by the time the game was over.

you find the clue that you need to read the book if you go to the forest location you mark on any day other than the 16th.

also?  you can attack as soon as the soul enters the pommel of the sword and it glows.  you will catch them a bit off guard and still get the "best" version of the sword.  And lastly, you should have show the potential enchantment list for that sword, as some of them were quite interesting.   It truly is a very good greatsword, only surpassed by the "Whispers of the Endless Paths" that you can make from the stuff you brought with you from PoE1.  well, at least the non-nerfed version of that sword anyway.  as of patch 1.1, the Sanguine IS the best greatsword in the game.

If this were any other rpg that had alignment systems, that should be a serious push towards changing your alignment towards evil though :)


also?  good choice of cape for your main.  I modded that cape with all the "death" labeled minor enchantments and it worked out nicely.

Hey, just a friendly suggestion

 

Next time, when you do a weapon showcase, go to the enchants tab too so people can see what upgraded perks the sword has :)

Yup, completely forgot that! XD

 

Here's an album with the details!

Could you post a screenshot of the blade drawn from the inventory screen?

 

Mine looks positively transparent, which is pretty odd:

Granted, I consoled mine in, but still...

Mine's the same, but it does appear reddish combat.

Tragically for the life of the captive, I was a Devoted specializing in greatsword. 

I've got a moral compass, but it doesn't spin THAT far off course.
