Longsword is a type of melee weapon available to the Fateless One in Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning. Using measured, focused attacks, the longsword is a close-range weapon, good at disrupting and focusing down single enemies. Being part of the Might-based weapon set, they are intended for use by fighter-style characters, and are bolstered by the Brutal Weaponry and Longsword Mastery passives in the Might ability tree.

Longswords will always have a base damage consisting of Physical Damage and Piercing Damage, with approximately a 3/1 split ratio favoring physical.

They have an Average attack speed, making them the fastest of the Might weapons, but slower than any of the Finesse weapons.

They have the Most combat moves available for those who invest fully in the Brutal Weaponry series of abilities, equal to the number available to Faeblades and Daggers.

They have a Moderate damage output per hit, being weaker than all other Might weapons, compensating for their versatile moveset and attack speed. They are, however, more damaging than any of the Finesse melee weapons.
