Origins of the legendary Warlord Sword
Many stories exist about the Warlord Sword, but many have been debunked as myths. Two stories about the weapon seem to be true, but curiously, in both cases the Sword is said to be deleted.
Auction by the Gods
The first story about the Warlord Sword tells about an auction held by one of the Gods in the very early days of Tibia. Although unknown which God is being talked about, it is said that he auctioned the weapon to the highest bidder. This bidder made a bid of 300 stacks of diamonds, or in other words, 30.000 diamonds. This would mean the weapon was sold for about 9kk, an incredible fortune during these days.
Durin, one of the leading developers and founders of Tibia found out about the auction and deleted the depot of the buyer.
During this time it was common practice to use diamonds as a currency, as only gold coins existed and platinum and crystal coins were only implemented during the Winter Update of 2000.
Durin, one of the leading developers and founders of Tibia found out about the auction and deleted the depot of the buyer. The exact reason for this is unknown. Some say this was because the auction was not allowed, but another explanation often given is that Durin suspected the buyer to have abused bugs to get this many diamonds in the early game.
Warlord Sword on Rookgaard
The second story about the Warlord Sword is even more peculiar. It is said the sword was found in the Minotaur Hell of Rookgaard, just laying there on the ground. A new player picked it up and subsequently sold it to a more experienced player, not aware of the value of the sword.
As this was clearly a bugged appearance of the sword, word quickly got out and Guido deleted the sword from the game.
Sweaty Cyclops: does he have more to hide?
The Sweaty Cyclops has been mentioned briefly earlier and with good reason. Underneath the workshop of the Cyclops, the Warlord Sword is on display between a wall of rocks. The Cyclops also responds to the words Warlord Sword:
Player: warlord sword
A Sweaty Cyclops: Do lil’ one want to trade a warlord sword?
A Sweaty Cyclops: You not have stuff me want for.
This response of the Cyclops was also the origin of the myth about 1 million iron pieces, but the question is whether this is actually a quest that can be solved and if so, whether the Cyclops is the NPC to talk to.
Although the Sweaty Cyclops seems to be a likely candidate to be related to the sword, it also seems to be a bit too easy and perhaps simply a gimmick to keep Tibians wondering. This is strengthened by the fact that you can also ask him for a Sword of Valor or Fire Sword, with a response similar to that when you ask about the Warlord Sword.
On top of this, during a hack of the 7.72 client source code, the Cyclops showed to not have any hidden transcripts related to the sword. Of course, this could have since changed, the hack being a long time ago, but it does not strengthen the idea of the Cyclops being related to the quest or for that matter any other NPC.
A hidden spawn or quest?
What is left is the Warlord Sword being available from a hidden spawn or quest. As most maps seem to be fully visible and available, it is unlikely that there is a large quest area that holds the Warlord Sword, but hidden elements in the game could still hold the sword in theory.
