    Default Scariest Looking Single Hand Sword In The Game?

    Hi there! I'm trying to perfect my Scary Paladin cosmetic theme, and I need opinions on what the absolute most intimidating looking single hand sword in the game is. My Pally uses a Longsword, so it'd do me no good to glamer a falchion or a greatsword.

    Fiery/Flaming effects are a plus, but not a requirement.

    Cheers!

    Every time I see Spinal Tap I am reminded to trim the hedges.

    I think Charoush's Inferno best suits the fire theme I've got going. Thanks, everyone!

    Spinal Tap has a good look.

    What about First Blood?

    I would highly recommend a Barovian Bastard Sword with the Mist Aura. I use this for my one handed swords.

    It will not affect your intimidate score. The cosmetic is seen only by players.
    I tried a similar tactic on my assassin by using the leaf outfit armor on a female toon to boost bluff. Didn't work. I will update this if it improves it with an elf; perhaps the halfling females are not so effective.

    First Blood (the wiki pic doesn't do it justice, look at it in-game) or my favorite, Razorend. Again, the wiki pic doesn't do it justice.

    Personally I don't think flaming weapons look as intimidating/scary as dark, cold, sharp, mean looking steel.

    Oh, I know! I'm just going for looks, you know?

    Yup, my thought is either Lacerator or the Hooked Blade.

    I was going to say it depends on what you consider 'scary'. Spikes everywhere (there are some beefy spiked clubs). Skulls everywhere (there are some sickles that are seemingly made from spines/skulls with the blade coming from that, etc), or simply dark/dangerous? Strange angles? Sleek and deadly?

    imo, sometimes simpler is better. Who needs to over-compensate when you can have cruel, cold efficiency. The solid black blade of the Cruel Nobility does this well imo (without the almost comical curvy-ness of many other scimitars).

    I'd be all for the First Blood IF it wasn't so fat. Give us the thin/elongated version featured in the Mabar/Night Revels pic from last year (when the reaper cosmetics were first introduced)!

    Not a sword, but the new sickle is something impressive to fit into one hand. It would give a more reaper look if you were going for it.
    I would have a sig, but Someone might be offended by it so I will just list characters.
    Vicinity, Proximity, and far to many bank toons too list.

    I'd go for something like the threnalian warblade, personally - absolutely nothing fancy about it at all, it's there purely on business.
    I don't mean to come across as unsympathetic - but I am, so I do.

    I've always thought Nightmare, the Fallen Moon was one of the best sword graphics.
