Erdwin Equipment

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Erdwin Equipment is a set of powerful items from Dragon Quest XI once belonging to the Luminary of Legend, Erdwin. The Luminary, being a reincarnation of Erdwin, is the only one that can equip the items.

Just like Erdwin himself, the set is essentially modeled after the equipment belonging to The Hero of Dragon Quest III, and consists of a coronet, a tunic, and a sword and a shield.

Swords of Light[edit]

The Sword of Light is the legendary sword wielded by Erdwin. In the game, there are three different Swords of Light, each varying in properties and strengths.

Sword of Light[edit]

The Sword of Light is a forged replica of the Super Sword of Light. After Mordegon steals and corrupts the Super Sword of Light, the party learn thanks to the seedlings in Havens Above how to make another Sword of Light. The materials needed are Orichalcum found in the Overlooked Cavern in The Battleground and the Forging Hammer of Gallopolis. Once the materials are gathered, it is finally forged in the Crucible located in the volcano of Hotto.
