Fable Anniversary Legendary Weapons Guide

Official Description: “Legendary weapons are incredibly rare, and were once wielded by Heroes and long dead kings. Use their power wisely!”

How To Unlock Legendary Weapons: Legendary Weapons are unique in appearance, are available only once in the game, and often require first completing a Quest (listed below), a Demon Door challenge (as shown in our Fable Anniversary Demon Doors Locations Guide) OR by collecting a number of Silver Keys to open the Silver Chests they can be hidden in (as shown in our Fable Anniversary Silver Chests Locations Guide).

What is the best weapon in Fable Anniversary?: The Solus Greatsword is the best weapon in the game, it’s a sword you can buy halfway through the Fable storyline. Note that although a sword with a little lesser damage but faster attacks (like the Sword of Aeons, which is 2 to 3 times faster) seems like it does more damage; Instead when you use the weapon with highest damage (the Solus Greatsword) in combination with the skill that allows your attack to hit multiple times, then the Solus Greatsword weapon will greatly benefit from the higher damage. For example: Using the Solus Greatsword you can defeat the final boss in around 4 hits!

Further unlocking methods are detailed in the list here-under…
