Tempest is an artifact in Tyranny.

Background[edit | edit source]

Legend tells of a Spire repeatedly struck by lightning until it crumbled to the ground.

Amid the devastation left in its wake, ancient explorers found a conspicuous length of iron that seemed to have attracted and absorbed the worst of the storm's onslaught. After painstakingly shaping the iron into a capable weapon, the wielder was chastised for drawing violent weather during every hunt. The blade dubbed Tempest was hidden in the Oldwalls to keep its unpredictable energy under strict guard.

Whatever fury the elements unleashed on this weapon has not diminished for its time spent in the Oldwalls. The hilt vibrates in your hand, and the air around you feels constantly tense with expectation.
