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.
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.
The Fateless One can learn new attack techniques with the longsword by investing in the Brutal Weaponry series of abilities, and can increase damage delivered by the use of longsword by investing in the Longsword Mastery ability.
