Legendary Swords And Their Power

I recently beat Jack of Blades, killed my sister, and took the Sword of Aeons.
I was checking it out in my inventory, and it says it only has a damage rating of 230. I thought it was supposed to be in the 500's? Am I doing something wrong? Did I neglect to do something beforehand? Any advice from the experts would be appriciated. Thanks in advance....

By the way, I am playing Fable:TLC on my Xbox360.....

Re: Why is my Sword of Aeons so weak?

The Sword of Aeons in the original Fable had an attack power of 500. Since in The Lost Chapters, there is more game left after you receive it, the developers toned down it's power. Otherwise, the game would have been laughably easy if they left it as it was.

Well now, that makes sense. I was looking foward to kicking some summoner arse with it, but I will just stick to the Solus Greatsword. Is there any chance later to bring up the power level? Just a yes or no please because I still havnt finished the game :D Thanks for the info Devalion!

Sadly, no, but that would be pretty sweet if you could! A sword you find later, The Bereaver, is pretty decent, and between that, the Solus Greatsword, and the SoA, you should be able to find a weapon that fits your fighting style.

If you Mod you can get Briar Rose's Sword which does 520 dmg and you can start the game with it. Sort of takes the sport out of the game but if you have already beaten it its fun to do it again with godly power MWAHAHHAHAHAH

Ahh I just Use Thunders Sword V2. It does 400dmg that's enough for me...but then again I like using them all. It's not like I'm not powerful enough without it....

Everyone is. ^_^

the bereaver isn't the strongest weapon. Solus Greatsword is with a damage of 314. The bereaver is only 285. I'm not too sure why the sword of aeons isn't all powerful. Maybe the weilder likes to torture it's prey before it dies, instead of a one hit kill..That's too boring for me.

Re: Why is my Sword of Aeons so weak?

Despite its lower damage rating, the lightness of the Sword of Aeons gives it an edge above the bereaver/solus greatsword because of the speed with which you can parry and jab. Augmented, my bereaver is 314 damage, but I got hit too many times in between swinging it at enemies so I switched back the SoA for speeds and agility in combat.

Heeheee..:ninja: Playing with your prey is the best.

And I did find a weapon stronger than most weapons It's thunder's Sword Version 2. Damage of 400. But I enjoy my Nostro's sword. ^^' Heehee

Heh. I personally like summoning my Minion and Ghost Swords, then laugh as I only need to swing occassionally. It's even better when you have other do your work for you.

If you throw in then you don't have to do a thing

Even with a Briar Rose's sword I find myself using the Sword of Aeons because it looks so cool and I end up healthier after long battles than with other sword I think thats the true test. It is fun some times having close to one hit kills when you don't want to be bothered by a long drawn out fight.

Mm If I wants a one hit kill or not to be bothered I either run past them with slow time, or I'll take out ye olde Skorms bow or Ye Olde Harvester. :ninja:
