How to Acquire the Blade of the Immortal in Planescape Torment


The PC game Planescape: Torment features many varied endings to its amazing story of the immortal amnesiac known only as The Nameless One. While the main character of Torment is seemingly unable to die, there is a hidden weapon known as the Blade of the Immortal that is able to kill him. Although it cannot be acquired until late in the game and does take a bit of effort to retrieve, it is well worth the time as it can be used to get one of the best of the different endings available.

Things You'll Need

  • Planescape: Torment PC Game
  • Complete all of the main quests in the Lower Ward, such as slaying the abishai Grosuk, freeing Trist from slavery and getting Byron Pickit arrested, and convincing the guard Corvus to speak with Karina.

  • Go to the indoor market in the Lower Ward and speak with Lazlo about portals until he brings up the siege tower that mysteriously appeared in Sigil. Choose the dialog option that states the key to getting into the tower is to not want to get in the tower.

  • Leave the market and travel to the siege tower. Stand in front by the drawbridge and a dialog option will appear to supress any desire to enter the tower. Choose the option and a portal will appear that leads inside the siege tower.

  • Speak with the huge metal golem named Coaxmetal in the center of the room. Follow the various dialog options asking about Coaxmetal's purpose and forging weapons. Eventually a dialog option will appear that asks Coaxmetal if immortality is another form of death. Choose this option.

  • Ask Coaxmetal about forging a weapon that can kill an immortal. Shortly after a dialog option will appear to ask about if an enemy is unseen and attacks from the shadows. Choose this option and Coaxmetal will offer to forge a blade that can kill The Nameless One. He will then give you the Blade of the Immortal.

Tips & Warnings

  • The Blade of the Immortal isn't meant to be used as a regular combat weapon as it does very little damage.
  • In the Fortress of Regrets have The Nameless One threaten to use the blade of the immortal on himself when speaking with the Transcendent One. This will give one of the best endings in the game.
  • The Blade of the Immortal can be used as an item in the Fortress of Regrets - be sure not to do this or it will permanently kill The Nameless One before he can meet with the Transcendent One and will prematurely end the game.
