A beastly sword whose keen edge stands ready to mow down all who question the divine right of the wielder.
Beastlord is found in the Lost Shrine when revisiting it in the second part of the story before the boss fight.
Beastlord Weapon Story
Beastlord Level 1 Weapon Story
"Long long ago in a faraway kingdom, there were three brothers. The eldest brother was a king who ruled over the nation entire. He was a most terrifying king, feared by all."
Beastlord Level 2 Weapon Story
"Each day, the king would select one of his subjects to execute as a sacrifice. This day, he chopped off a mother's head and forced her family to watch. The head spun three times as it flew through the air before landing next to the head of her son, who the king had previously killed.
Oh, the horror of it all.
But the king merely watched the sight unfold before him and laughed in a most unsettling voice."
Beastlord Level 3 Weapon Story
"One day, the king contracted an illness most dire—one which caused his body to rot while he was still alive. But though diseased, the king would still drag his decaying flesh to the executions all the same. His retainers dared not defy their king, so they continued to kill day after day after day after day."
Beastlord Level 4 Weapon Story
"In the end, the king rotted and died. His was a disgusting, foul, rotten death, but his retainers continued carrying out executions before the king's rotted corpse every day... Every day, killing... Every day the rotted king and the rotted retainers and the rotted citizens... and the rotted you."
Weapons can be upgraded by handing in the required materials and paying a fixed price at the Two Brothers Weaponry outside the Junk Heap. Upgrading Beastlord will give the following boosts to the weapon:
