How to Get Swornbreaker in Divinity: Original Sin 2

Get all the pieces to the legendary Swornbreaker Scythe with the help of this guide to Divinity: Original Sin 2.

As a part of the Key to Freedom quest in Divinity: Original Sin 2, you will be given a schematic of the Swornbreaker Scythe by either Ryker at Stonegarden or Almira, the Succubus.

You will need to collect two pieces of the scythe in order to be able to craft it: the haft and the blade. These pieces are hidden in two different locations -- and if you're having trouble finding them, then follow our step-by-step guide below.

How to Find the Haft and the Blade of Swornbreaker in Divinity: Original Sin 2

Step 1: Enter the Black Ring Encampment

Travel to the Nameless Isle and visit the Elven Temple in the north-eastern part of the map. You need to speak to Bishop Alexandar, who resides on the top level of the temple.

He will give you a task to kill the Sallow Man, a leader of the Black Ring. If you agree, he will grant you with a magic item -- Cowl of True Sight. You will need it to enter the Sallow Man's camp.

After that go to coordinates x:268 z:807. There you will encounter a troll that protects an entrance into the cave. You must kill the troll first before entering the cave, which accomodates the Black Ring Encampment.

Step 2: Find the Haft of the Swornbreaker

As you enter the cave you will stumble upon a Decrepit Altar, and behind the altar you will see a blocking wall. Equip one of your characters that has the highest level of Intelligence with the Cowl of True Sight and use it to dispel the illusory wall.

Inside the camp you will have to fight Sallow Man and his thugs. When you're finished, go to the war room at coordinates x:129 z:202 and open the golden chest. Inside the chest you will find the first piece to the Swornbreaker.

Step 3: Enter the Portal

Travel to the Lunar Gate located at coordinates x:335 z:823 and enter the temple. Go inside the Teacher's Hall and go through the doors at coordinates x:620 z:632.

Behind the door you will see a portal that will teleport you to another location. There you will immediately encounter a dead bird. Cast a Spirit Vision source skill so you could talk to its spirit -- Ghechswol, the Arena Master.

Step 4: Find the Blade of the Swornbreaker

After the conversation you will begin the fight with the Great Guardian of the Arena. In order to kill him you need to electrically charge one of the phase generators behind the Guardian to create a giant electric beam. Then, you need to line up the reflectors and aim the beam right at the Great Guardian -- this will stun him permanently.

After you defeat the Great Guardian, he will drop loot, among which you will see the second piece to the Swornbreaker. 

Finally, in order to craft the Swornbreaker Scythe combine the two pieces of the Swornbreaker with the schematic, and you will have one of the coolest looking weapons in the game.
