Shalamayne in the BattleCry Mosaic.

Shalamayne is a legendary sword wielded by Anduin Wrynn, current King of Stormwind. The weapon was previously wielded by his late father, King Varian Wrynn.

Background

After Varian was split into two people by Onyxia's magic, the two ultimately found each other again and resolved to slay the black dragon. They were granted the elven blades Shalla'tor the Shadow Render and Ellemayne the Reaver by Jaina Proudmoore, who aided them in the assault on Onyxia's Lair.[1]

When Onyxia inadvertently combined the two Varians back into one person, the two blades were merged into a single weapon as well.[2]

Appearance

It has a unique narrow edge at the point and a thicker, angled edge further down. The gem in the lower part of the blade glows like a sun. There is a backward arch at the bottom of the blade, and the hilt is long and slender.[3]

In Legion

World of Warcraft: Legion This section concerns content exclusive to Legion.

Shalamayne is featured prominently in the Battle on the Broken Shore and Varian was holding it when he was killed by Gul'dan. After his death, Anduin, his son, found the sword at the very place his father died, took hold of it, reactivating its power in a new light.[citation needed]

Trivia

  • Following the creation of Shalamayne, Varian was depicted using this sword in the comic book, in the Secrets of Ulduar trailer, in the BattleCry mosaic, and in the novel Stormrage. The sword is also mentioned in the books The Shattering and Before the Storm.
  • During the World of Warcraft: Legion Legion cinematic, Varian is able to split Shalamayne back into its two original swords. [4]
