St. Ydwen's Redeemer is a soulbound great sword in Pillars of Eternity, added in The White March - Part I. It can only be used by a Barbarian, Fighter or Paladin.

Description[edit | edit source]

As with other soulbound weapons, the in-game description of St. Ydwen's Redeemer is only gradually revealed. It starts as a single paragraph, and a new one is added each time the weapon is upgraded.

Level 1[edit | edit source]

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.
This sword is well-made but modest in design. The lone flourish is a feather pattern radiating from the hilt, and even this has been crafted with exquisite care - each barb and shaft is a smooth, straight line beneath your fingers. Power and warmth radiate from this blade.

Level 2[edit | edit source]

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.
Ydwen was a paladin and member of the Kind Wayfarers during the War of Black Trees. She was famous for escorting colonists and farmers through the Dyrwood and protecting them from Glanfathan war bands. Though a skilled warrior, she avoided the Glanfathans when possible rather than fight them. However, tensions and tempers rose, and one day she found herself guiding a family of farmers from their ruined homestead. While she attempted to wait out the prowling raiders, one of her charges rushed into the fray. Ydwen was forced to hold off the Glanfathans while the rest of the farmers fled. She died, outnumbered and surrounded, and it was said that even the raider who struck the killing blow wept for her.

Level 3[edit | edit source]

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.
The sword passed to a warrior of the Twice-Split Arrows in honor of his bravery and skill during a ritual blood-hunt. This was a moment of great pride for the tribe, typically regarded as least among the six. It was also a time of shifting borders and changing relations between Dyrwood and Eir Glanfath. Bolstered by the newfound prestige and eager to seize more, the rîow of the Twice-Split Arrows declared that their young hunter should lead a series of raids on slave-holding estates. The first few were successful, but when the raiders set their sights on a village run by a guild of coopers, they were quickly overwhelmed. The hunter was killed and his sword lost.

Level 4[edit | edit source]

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.
The sword had made its way to Forked Vale by the time the War of Defiance began. It was owned by the captain of the local militia, who used it to defend the fleeing townsfolk while Aedyran troops converged on the town from the northwest and the southeast. The captain guarded the road to Baelreach and fell while the villagers fled.
