The sword plunged into Silithus.

The Sword of Sargeras[1] (referred to as the dark blade of Sargeras)[2] is the weapon that the titan Sargeras used to impale Azeroth, gravely injuring its world-soul. It struck in Silithus, decimating the life and settlements in the region which is now referred to as the Wound. This event caused the titan spirit at the core of the planet to start bleeding Azerite all over the world. The sword is surrounded in a creepy aura of red light. The Explorers' League doesn't know how deep the sword goes and what Sargeras might have disturbed or awoken.[3]

According to Pixni Rustbomb, the research about the silithid who survived the destruction of the land should help understand the power of Sargeras' sword.[4]

The dark energies of the sword were seeping into Azeroth's heart, until order champions drained the sword with their artifact weapons serving as vessels for its vast power. The red glow subsided, and the sword went dormant.[5]

Notes

  • Unlike its previous depictions,[6] the sword is whole instead of being broken, and the hilt of the sword hosts an orb of energy instead of an eye.
  • During the War of the Ancients, Sargeras impaled Broxigar with a jagged, broken blade.[7]
  • While the sword is never named in canon, in the non-canonical RPG Sargeras wielded a sword named Gorribal, though the two swords look widely different and have different origin stories.
  • One image in the RPG similarly depicts Sargeras plunging the non-canonical Gorribal into what seems a planet.
