The Sword of Shadows is a greatsword in Dragon Quest XI. It is only accessible in the post-game and is needed to progress.


The Sword of Shadows was created after Mordegon corrupted the original Sword of Light. It then becomes his main weapon during the first phase of his boss fight in the main game.

After defeating Mordegon, the Luminary obtains it in his inventory and can use it in battle. It has an attack bonus of +196 and a parry chance of 3%. It cannot be upgraded.

The sword is needed to progress further in the post-game, as it is the only weapon that can break Jasper's barrier during his fight with in the Heart of Yggdrasil. After this fight, however, the sword breaks permanently.
