Sanguine Great Sword is a Weapon in Pillars of Eternity 2.


Forged through ritual sacrifice, this sword radiates the hot, metallic scent of fear and the singed sulphur smell of anger. When you hold it, you taste blood on your tongue and hear the whispered cries of the soul fragment trapped within.The enchanted blade seems almost to guide its own motions, hungrily seeking out flesh to cut. It is a greedy thing with an unquenchable thirst, and once it draws blood, it is loath not to sup on the sweet, spilling essence within.



Sanguine Great Sword Location/Where to find

  • You'll first find mention of the harvest in a note found on an exploration island. It will hint at Arkemyr's name. Speaking with Arkemyr will allow a dialogue option that she may have a book in her basement about it (you may have already acquired this earlier).

    The book hints at the 16th of the month as being important and a ritual involving a Great Sword. Traveling to an island in Northwest Corner of the map there is an Island with a Fampyr Cave and a "Forest" Point of Interest. Resting until the 16th of the month and then approaching the Forest allows you to witness a sacrificial ritual involving a woman. If you choose to interrupt the ritual early you can save the woman. If you wait until after the sacrifice you can attack the cultists and receive this Great Sword as loot. Island is located at 0 degrees 59' S 39 degrees 10' E.

Sanguine Great Sword Unique Enchantment Upgrades

Enchantments play a vital role in a player's equipment, these Enchantments provide different special effects that can be used as an advantage in battle. Some Unique Weapons carry multiple Enchantments that players may equip and some Unique Weapons only has one Enchantment. These Enchantments can only be found in Unique Items and can be upgraded if needed.

Players can unlock all of the upgrades listed for a Unique Weapon's Enchantment, however, some upgrades replace the current enchantment, and some can be stacked as bonus effects. By doing this, players must have the required ingredients and sufficient Copper Pands (CP) to be able to craft their preferred upgrade.
