    Overview Of Rare and Unique Swords In Diablo

    No RPG game would be complete without magic swords, and the original Diablo game is no exception. Swords are likely to be the primary weapon of choice for many characters and of all the rare and unique items swords are the most numerous with 17 items.

    Swords are mostly random items and can be found anywhere in the Diablo game, although one sword – Griswold's Edge – is given as a quest item after completing the Anvil of Fury quest.

    Most swords are one-handed weapons, although some require two hands to wield and so cannot be used in conjunction with shields.
