The Hammer of Tyr, although it is a priest weapon/artifact so maybe I'm not in the right place to mention it. For fighter weapons, Dragonbait's Holy Avenger is pretty neat, unique in the Realms for its shape.

Isn‘t Dragonbait‘s sword - like, oh, about a thousand others scattered through fantasy fiction - named “Cutter“?

Although, now that I think about it, having a sword named “Legion, the Thousand-Edged“ would be kinda cool in its own right.

I Loved Arilyn's moonblade.
Protection from fire. The ability to change your appearance at will with illusion. Glows to warn of danger. Gives dream warnings of danger, Allows you to call upon Elfshadow fighters, cut's through just about anything. Will zap anyone who tries to take it, or you if you have dishonorable intentions. Ability for each owner to add a power of their choice to the blade.

Oh yeah, and the ability to open a portal right to the heart of the Elven kingdom is pretty cool :p

His original blade was Hillcleaver.

I'm going with Arilyn's moonblade.

With that in mind, I wish we'd see more from Ailyn and Danilo. :(

Which weapon do you suppose Drizzt loses before he slays the latest Baenre Weaponmaster, Tiago, and claims the scimitar Lullaby/Vidrinath(sp) as his own? Twinkle or Icingdeath?

Here here! I'd like nothing better than to see E.C. finish all of her old projects that were cancelled along the way.

Entreri's Jeweled Dagger was pretty wicked in itself.

For me, this is a tough call, but ultimately I'll go with Entreri's Jeweled Dagger. Charon's Claw as presented when it was first introduced was also quite cool though, and then I have to admit that I also love the concept of the Moonblades, though Aryilan's Moonblade isn't my favourite of the weapons listed here.

Naturally Charon's Claw! It was designed to battle wizards, essentially! Not to mention what happens if improperly handled. Plus it could make temporary ash-like walls for advantages in combat. Also it glowed if need be, to see in dark places. Plus only the wielder could see it so that was also a bonus. And the ability to be invisible to infravision was not bad either. And last but not least, even small nicks or cuts would be fatal. Since the wound would fest and poison the victim. I mean this weapon is VICIOUS and DEADLY, such a perfect weapon for Artemis.

Moon Blades are in general are awesome, Vinidacator is really cool and a great plot device.

I forget the name, but in Lady of Poison the Priest of Lurue had a really cool spear, as his his Oz buddy, I forget the name of that weapon as well.

The best weapons of all of course are the unique weapons of the God's, like Sune's Sash.

Not a specific weapon, but weapons made from Batrachi Glass steal are cool too.

Yes, it is a beautiful sword with magnificent powers, BUT the fact that you can end up in eternal servitude to it kinda ruins the appeal.

As far as battling wizards, that gauntlet was overrated. It did keep Entreri and Jarlaxle alive against the lich in POTWK, but it also got destroyed rather easily. And I don't recall Alegni doing anything useful with it.

I agree with this. Weaveshear blocked a few spells from Vhostym (an Elminster level mage) and ate through the wards of Mephistopheles. I don't recall how useful it was against Kesson Rel, but even so, that sword is an artifact.

The only more powerful sword I can think of is Gareth Dragonsbane's sword Crusader. Speaking of which, the 4e FRCG stated that the last of his descendants was assassinated. So who owns Crusader now?

I voted Aegis-fang because it was a labor of love from Bruenor. I rather like the idea of the surly dwarf with a huge heart. One of my favorite scenes involving Bruenor is when Drizzt 'caught' him giving toys to goblin (or kobold?) children.

Arily'n Moonblade follows a close second.

I have a dream that one day, all game worlds will exist as one.
