Anathema Notes/Tips

  • Using 1 skill will destroy the weapon and make it useless after the attack. Make sure to use it wisely
  • It is the most powerful weapon in the game.
  • To maximize the power of this weapon, use Enrage + Onslaught.
  • The strongest reusable two-handed weapon is Falone

      Garbage. I don't mind the "one use only" thing, but if it's going to be hyped up by the lore as being a god-slaying weapon, then maybe it should do more than 350 base damage (I'm fighting 4000-HP enemies here)...

        "Do not use Onslaught as Anathema will break after the first hit"

        I guess that problem has been patched, because I tested it against Vreedeman, and Anathema didn't break until all my Enraged Onslaught hits finished successfully.

          Used this to kill Braccus in one turn at level 20 with 2hd build.
          Green Tea, Tactical retreat, Teleport, Equalized which removed like 75% of the physical armor, then onslaught.

          I believe anathema is suppose to do bonus damage on Braccus's HP but does not do bonus damage on armor.

            use the four sisters to upgrade this weapon when you are level 21 so the sword becomes level 21. It hten does 470-520 base damage.

              The legendary artifact, Anathema, crafted specifically to slay gods, while fixed by one of the world's best necromancer, Tarquin, and now you tell me this sword breaks in one swing? What kind of shoddy blacksmith made this???

                Got in my shot on Braccus Rex. Did 4K damage. Not enough to kill him though. If I had kept Falone instead, I could have done several hits instead for more total damage (since after it breaks, you have to switch to another weapon; better to just use a non-breakable weapon and do 2 swings).

                • Stacked every single final boss character together, popped enrage, consumables, flesh sacrifice, thick of the fight and did a whirlwind. On Tactician they pretty much all almost died in one go.

                    In one of my play throughs I was able to do about 2000 damage with it because I was a strength based character at leave 20 or 22 IDK with all of the buffs I could have on and it allowed me to cheese the game so I did not have to go through the whole second phase of the final fight with all of the super tough void creatures( IT SHOULD BE HEAVLY NERFED)

                      I don't know if it got patched somewhere along the line but I tried using Anathema as a basic attack weapon after Enrage in the last fight. It is still a one-hit let down whether a normal attack or skill is used. Doesn't matter. It shatters.

                        I knew it could only be used once (unlike some of the previous commenters, so I waited for the right moment. I teleported behind the demon Adrehmalik, equipped Anathema, and swung with all my might!

                        I did 200 damage to his armor and the sword broke.

                        i agree with the people who say this weapon should be a one-shot, one-kill item. I mean, doesn't Tarquin describe it as a weapon meant down to bring down BRACCUS REX? Come on.....

                          In DE, Anathema breaks after a skill is used and not after it hits something. Pretty solid boost for 2h physical builds who can either one-shot Braccus Rex with Onslaugth or Whirlwind everyone down, depending on the path you choose.

                          Playing Tactician and refusing Lucian's offer, I one turn'd the whole team with a 100% crit whirlwind + Grasp of the Starved, so much for a "joke of a sword" !

                          • What a *****ing joke. For how much they hype the weapon in the game it should at least not be junk. If they are going to make it brittle, at least make it an instakill vs whatever it hits. Otherwise remove the lore that hypes it up so much

                              This weapon would need another 0 at the end of the damage count. "Legends say that this ancient weapon could even defeat the mighty Braccus Rex" [[[SPOILERS]]] I killed Braccus with health potions, big deal this sword is.

                                This sword was a huge disappointment after all the buildup. It was intended as a one-shot Warfare character's nuke for the final boss and nothing more. My main was Warfare at max strength. With gear I had him at 73 str, 16 Two-Handed, 14 Warfare. In the final battle I had both mages cast Pyroclastic Eruption which left only Dallis and Braccus standing. I then enraged my main and hit Braccus with a normal attack. It killed him instantly. Never even saw the Kraken or Voidwoken. My huntsman sky shot Dallis and that was the end.

                                  Used it on Braccus for the giggles, I first killed Dallis and then when he emerged I simply offed him. I have 40 STR and 40 INT, I mainly spellcast the hell out of this game but I saved ONE ability to use with this weapon on Braccus, and that felt enough to shove it up his butt XD

                                    Used it with onslaught and it dealt the damage multiple times before breaking, was playing Definitive Edition if that makes any difference

                                      I felt like offing the dude for making such a brittle sword. What a waste of time, now I'm going to pick his pocket clean.

                                        Very.... anticlimactic weapon for all the buildup it gets. It's a bloody shame that it's good for nothing due to brittle and unrepairable perks, and given you get it so late in game - it's barely worth the trouble. This game SORELY lacks unique weapons with fixed stats and lore attached to them, only 2 coming to mind being Swornbreaker and Anathema, and both being unrepairable. At least swornbreaker is not brittle.

                                          Good thing I found out it can only be used once or else I might have gotten excited...well 35k gold is 35k gold I guess.

                                            Imho only useful when you go for a lone wolf build, else you barely have enough AP to use it properly. I dealt 18500 dmg with one blow, not enough to kill Braccus Rey tho.

                                              what a waste. they shouldve made this very difficult to obtain but if you did you could one shot one of the final bosses. or at least one shot after Physical Armor is gone. its literally useless lol even buffed its useless i do more damage with my gahddamn Tentacle Lash....

                                                actually useless they build it up like its some amazing weapon and then during the final battle i waste an ability on it and it breaks.

                                                  Dont be jebaited. This sword is a bad joke to use, maybe not intended, but it's as good as your bare hands. lol

                                                    perhaps this is broken in some way? I tried using onslaught and it broke instantly, doing very little damage.
