"This blade appears to have special religious significance for Dak'kon. [He] has wound a series of parchments around the hilt of the blade [that] appear to be mantras dedicated to Zerthimon."

Dak'kon's Zerth Blade is an edged weapon in Planescape: Torment. Its use is restricted to Dak'kon. It cannot be unequipped or removed from his inventory.

LoreEdit

The weapon is a karach blade. "Karach" roughly translates to "chaos matter." It is a special substance that is shaped by its user's will.

This type of blade is significant to the githerzai people. Those who know the words of Zerthimon are zerth. They are fit to carry the blades, though it is only trusted to those who are most capable and possess immense self-discipline.

StatsEdit

Aside from its weight – which remains constant at 5 – the stats for Dak'kon's blade change based on his morale and fighter level (which is separate from his mage level).

Note: some of the information specifically regarding levels may be be inaccurate.

Chained BladeEdit

This is the default blade, equipped when Dak'kon is first recruited and/or when his morale is neutral:

  • Levels 4-6
    • Damage: 2-9 slashing
    • Effects: +1 AC, THAC0 +1
    • Special: none
    • Speed: 7
  • Levels 7-9
    • Damage: 3-12 slashing
    • Effects: enchanted +2, +4 AC, THAC0 +2
    • Special: memorize +2 level 1 mage spells, +1 level 2 mage spell
    • Speed: 6
  • Levels: 10+
    • Damage: 5-20 slashing
    • Effects: enchanted +3, +6 AC, THAC0 +3
    • Special: doubles all level 1 and 2 mage spells
    • Speed: 6

Streaming BladeEdit

This version of the blade is equipped when Dak'kon's morale is high. Achieving a high morale requires showing Dak'kon he is valued: asking him for his opinion, letting him speak when he wishes, and telling him you wish to free him from his indebted-slavery all increase his morale. It may also be necessary to invest time into learning the Unbroken Circle of Zerthimon. This blade works well for mages because of its spell-memorization effects.

  • Levels 4-6
    • Damage: 2-9 slashing
    • Effects: +1 AC, THAC0 +1
    • Special: memorize 2 additional 1st level spells
    • Speed: 7
  • Levels 7-9
    • Damage: 3-12 slashing
    • Effects: enchanted +2, +2 AC, THAC0 +2
    • Special: doubles all 1st level mage spells, memorize 1 additional 2nd level mage spell
    • Speed: 6
  • Levels 10+
    • Damage: 5-20 slashing
    • Effects: enchanted +3, +3 AC, THAC0 +3
    • Special: doubles all 1st level mage spells, doubles all 2nd level mage spells, memorize 1 additional 3rd level mage spell
    • Speed: 6

KinstealerEdit

This version of the blade is equipped when Dak'kon's morale is low. Reaching a low morale requires belittling Dak'kon and acting cruelly in matters involving slavery and/or the gith. This blade works very well for fighters.

  • Levels 4-6
    • Damage: 3-10 slashing
    • Effects: enchanted +1, THAC0 +1
    • Special: memorize 1 additional 1st level mage spell
    • Speed: 7
  • Levels 7-9
    • Damage: 4-16 slashing
    • Effects: enchanted +2, +1 AC, THAC0 +2
    • Special: memorize 1 additional 1st level mage spell
    • Speed: 6
  • Levels 10+
    • Damage: 6-24 slashing

    • Special: double 1st level spells memorized
    • Speed: 6
