The Rhogar are said to be fierce opponents and fighting them is something that those who have survived won't ever forget.

Killing the First Warden using Persistence will unlock the Achievement/Trophy "Do unto others..."; because the weapon isn't obtained until the First Warden is dead, this can only be accomplished in  New Game + or New Game ++.

Upgrading


Socketing is the process of embedding a rune into the available slot in your weapon. An empty rune socket looks like this: socket.png . Please see the relevant runes page to find what upgrade is best for your build.
Weapons and armor may have up to three sockets. There is no cost for socketing an empty slot although you must be at the crafter
You can remove a socketed rune and save it in your inventory, and thus you can place a new rune on a socketed weapon.

      It's pretty tough to get the special version as it requires you to beat First Warden without losing health - however with a much faster attack speed than most greatswords coupled together with a projectile attack (one-handed strong attack), it's perhaps the most versatile greatsword in the early to mid game. You can grow it for the late game if you're willing to dedicate a ton of points into strength to take advantage of its scaling but other greatswords will eventually beat it as far as raw damage goes leaving the projectile attack as the only tangible benefit.
