Normally, the sorcerers of Pagan shun physical weapons, instead trusting their Sorcery to the power of Pyros. However, when the element of Fire is introduced to the weapon's powers, many sorcerers become interested at once. The result of this is the Flamesting, a truly horrible weapon that engulfs its foes in devastating flames with each strike, doing massive damage. The burnt victim is then forced to serve Pyros for the rest of eternity.
The Avatar discovered the Flamesting while being tested in the Obsidian Fortress. Though it was guarded by deadly traps, the Avatar still managed to obtain the weapon, one of the most powerful in Pagan.
It is unknown what happened to the Flamesting after the Avatar left Pagan.
- As good as the weapon is, it has two drawbacks: It is totally useless against daemons, and it cannot harm a sorcerer using a Flame Shield (thus, killing Malchir with it is not an option).
- The greater benefit of this weapon is that it can permanently kill skeletons, who otherwise raise themselves shortly after being destroyed.
