GreedFall Legendary Gear Guide: Weapons and Armor Locations
GreedFall is a huge game, and there are tons of different builds and strategies you can put together to help you succeed. However, one of the best boosts you can get comes from the legendary gear you find in the form of weapons and armor.
To get these sets, you often need to complete certain quests or quest chains. Below, you will find two lists of legendaries: weapons and armor. Each entry lists the requirements for each item and set, as well as how to get them and where to find them on the open-world map.

Legendary Weapon #1: Asili's Blunderbuss
You can find this gun during the "Doctor Asili's Experiments" quest. Look for the chest inside Asili's lab.
Legendary Weapon #2: Broadsword of the Deceased King
To obtain this brutal two-handed weapon, you need to complete the quest "Champion of the Arena."
The arena is located in New Serene in the basement of the Coin Guard Tavern. You will have to fight through waves of tough enemies, so come prepared.
Legendary Weapon #3: Great Honor Duel Flamberge
Go to the Hot Springs in Magasvar: The Vale of the Great Battle. Complete the boss fight and look for a corpse with a "Coin Guard Soldier's Key" item on it. Take that, then head to the easternmost area in this section.
There is a watchtower in a camp there. Climb to the top and use the key to open the chest and obtain the weapon.
Legendary Weapon #4: Great Scythe
The great scythe is one of the best weapons in the game and can only be obtained in Root's Passage. This area is only available during one quest: "Quest for a Panacea."
When exploring Root's Passage, you will come across a broken bridge. If you go around it, you will find passages off to the side. Follow the pathway to the right, and you will find a glowing room. The great scythe inside.

Legendary Weapon #6: Light Flamberge
This weapon is in the Wenshaganaw Singing Waters. You will find a location in this area with a large group of difficult enemies wearing skull helmets. They are guarding a chest with the light flamberge inside.
A good strategy for killing these tough enemies is to lure one away from the group, then defeat them on their own. Back up, heal, and pick the others off until you can reach the chest.
Legendary Weapon #7: Scimitar
You will find this weapon in Glendgnamvar: The Shore of the Tall Bones. It is in the southeastern part of the map, on the way to Bedri.
Be on the lookout for a broken bridge with a corpse underneath it. Grab a key off the corpse, then move up to the bridge. Have your Vigor stat increased to at least Level 2 in order to leap over the gap.
On the other side of the gap, you'll find a chest with the Scimitar inside.
Legendary Weapon #8: Yataghan
Like the Scimitar, you'll find the Yataghan in Glendgnamvar: The Shore of the Tall Bones. To get this weapon, you'll want to travel to the Ruins of Didri subsection.
