Wodewys is a unique battle axe in Pillars of Eternity, added in The White March - Part I expansion.


Description[edit | edit source]

The elven kingdom of Kulklin warred with the Aedyr Kingdom for nearly two centuries before the two powers merged. During that time, many of the fiercest conflicts flared up along the edge of the Cythwood, where the two powers shared a border.

The Cythwood elves used the jungle terrain to their advantage and quickly became infamous for their cunning and brutal tactics. Skirmishers would fell trees behind invading Aedyran forces while druids made more to grow in their path, confusing and stalling their foes. They would often pair these maneuvers with devastating, lightning-fast attacks, surrounding lost platoons and dragging stragglers into the forest. Most notoriously, they would hang their victims from the trees to warn off further attacks. The Kulklin of the Cythwood were swift and improvised attacks quickly, owing in part to their use of everyday tools – axes, knives, and bows – as weapons of war. Axes such as Wodewys would have been used against folk and tree alike.
