Aerondight - Notes

  • The sword comes without any slots. Use Runewright, to add sockets for runes or runewords.
  • To level up Aerondight or increase its damage you need to kill the enemy with a maximum charge of 10.
  • The sword level with Geralt. However, there is a caveat - only the maximum potential increases. This means that to get increased damage you need to level up Aerondight with the charge mechanic mentioned above.
