The Crystalline Sword is one of the more unique-looking swords in the game. It is very rare and very highly sought. Perfect versions are among the most highly prized items available in Guild Wars. The blade is made of a piece of thin, translucent crystal.

Applying dye to this sword affects the hilt (the gold part of the sword in the image). It also seems to make the color of the dye appear a little brighter or off-tint (such as a yellow being a bright, slightly green color), when coloring the shaft in one color, the blade gets the inverted color in the icon. Before an update, Crystalline swords when dyed would affect the entire blade, tinting the crystalline blade a different color.

  • Crystalline Swords from the Hall of Heroes chest come with an Inscription slot, as of the January 19th Update. Previously, they dropped from this chest without an Inscription slot but instead, with an inherent damage modifier which cannot be removed or changed.
