The Top 5 Legendary Weapons in RPG History

AXE OF THE BLOOD GOD | Kat and Nadia pick the best legendary weapons from Final Fantasy, World of WarCraft, and more.

Axe of the Blood God is our weekly RPG podcast hosted by Kat Bailey and Nadia Oxford. You can find the previous episodes here.

Legendary weapons are a big deal in RPGs. Many of the best RPGs have weapons that define them. Nadia and I pick our favorites! [download link here]

In putting this list together, we mainly focused on weapons that defined individual RPGsā€”the legendary weapons that are synonymous with their individual games. We looked at how impacted their story, what was interesting about acquiring them, and what made them just cool in general. And we also talked a bit about how they fit in the broader context of the genre. Plus, we read some of your picks as well!
