Blizzard confirms The Sword of a Thousand Truths is real


It's not just for the kids of South Park anymore. After sister site WoW Insider tipped us off that the sword created by Salzman in Blizzard's accounting department may be real, we did a little investigating. Blizzard has confirmed that The Sword of a Thousand Truths, used by Stan to defeat "The Evil Man," is in the World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade expansion -- for now.

The Sword of a Thousand Truths is currently intended as a reward in the new Arena System. The Arena System is one of the new PvP elements available with the Burning Crusade expansion. Blizzard emphasizes that like anything else available in the closed beta of the expansion, which started today, this content could change at any time.

Sadly, unlike the real Sword of a Thousand Truths, this one does not cause 120 DPS with instant mana burn and give an enchant of +80 stamina. But it was created to Salzman's specifications!
