The Drow inscription on this blade appears to have been recently carved. It translates to;
'Though I have to leave you, I will dance forever in Eilistraee's Light.'

Where to find

This weapon can be found stabbed into a rock in the Underdark X: 116 Y: -192 and can be freed by passing either a:

  • DC 15 Strength check to yank it from the stone.
  • DC 15 Religion check to learn how to release the magic holding it in place.
  • Paladins can pass a DC 10 Religion check (with advantage) to consider what the appropriate ritual for releasing the sword is. If successful, a Paladin can perform the ritual or use their oath to prove their worth (DC 10 Charisma check).
  • Clerics of Eilistraee can release the sword without needing an ability check.
  • Spilling blood on the sword outside dialogue also releases it. It's possible to make one party member hit another, or perform Blood Sacrifice if having the Ritual Dagger, to cover the sword in a Blood Surface. This will make it light up, so it can be pulled out without any ability check.

Notes

  • The 1d4 Damage TypesThunder damage doesn't seem to trigger effects requiring Damage TypesThunder damage on items like Hat of Storm Scion's Power or Gloves of Belligerent Skies - regardless of whether the character triggering the damage has the items or the character activating Phalar Aluve - the Reverberation stacks don't apply. The Ring of Spiteful Thunder, however, is triggered if the target had stacks of Reverberation applied - at least when worn by the character triggering the damage. (as of 4.1.1.3648072)
  • Longswords do not regularly have the Finesse property; Phalar Aluve is special in this regard. The only other example is Larethian's Wrath.
  • Phalar Aluve is Drow language. Phalar means 'battle-marker' or 'grave', and Aluve means 'I/we leave you'
