The Sword is one of the four types of weapon that Leila can use in battle to inflict damage onto the enemies and bosses she encounters, the sword is capable of inflicting high damage and also executing light and heavy attacks.

This page covers a full list of all the Swords shown in the game.

Combat Mechanic

In Vigil: The Longest Night, each weapon has its own unique set of moves that changes Leila's stance and fighting style when she switches weapons. When a sword is equipped, Leila can execute light to heavy attacks, she can also perform a front roll or a backstep to evade enemy attacks, as well as placing the sword in front of her to block any incoming attacks. A successful dodge will not inflict any damage while blocking reduces the damage taken - both dodging and blocking consumes a small amount of stamina whenever it is used.

Mastering the Sword

Vigil: The Longest Night introduces a character progression system in the game and for the Sword, it has its own skill tree. Whenever Leila levels up, she gains (1) Skill Point that can be used to unlock skills - unlocking skills for the sword in the Sword Skill Tree will further increase Leila's mastery of using the Sword which allows her to execute more combat moves whenever she uses the sword in battle as well as adding buffs such as increasing the damage of the sword.

        Sword of Percival can be found in Mountain Pass near very first boss in prologue. One need to have double jump to reach it.

          Does Lagh Blade "drop" from her, or does it have to be stolen with Hand of Glory?

          Hand of Glory constantly seems to "miss" - when I have the Miniboss stunned or locked with Hand of Shadow, the animation connects, and nothing happens. Even times when I do get an "item", it doesn't appear in my inventory. I've stolen boots and gloves, and never received them in inventory.

            Lagh Blade: This blade glows with weird light. It seems to be sharper when it drenched in blood.
            Attack 10
            Poise Damage 65
            Block 40

            There is a poison miniboss that looks like a Vigilant above and to the left of the Hunter's House lamp, the area is reached by air-dashing to the left from the branches above the hut. The miniboss is quite fast and its poison is quite strong if you stand in the clouds it creates. Said miniboss has the "Black" armor set and the Lagh Blade all of which can be stolen off him with the Hand of Glory spell.

              Used Hand of Glory to steal the Lagh Blade off the Black Vigilant Miniboss in the secret area at the Hunter's House Owl statue. You need air dash to access the area

                Did someone find the Lagh Blade yet? No clue where it is. Thought it would be somewhere in the Flooded Area as it looks like a sword made of bone with corals growing on it but I didn't manage to find it.

                  I found the Sword of Wallace. It's inside the Sealed Greatwood dungeon; I think it's near the first owl statue, but I could be wrong. Either way, you slide to the right near a wall that looks like it has an opening, and it's in a chest in the center of the room. Its special skill is basically a sword version of the Dagger skill Meteor Strike, with the added perk that you can move slowly forward or backwards while attacking. I haven't upgraded it, but I'd expect that this would offset its low damage, since if you just use it for that skill its base damage is higher than any dagger starts at.
