The Wraithverge is a weapon
from Hexen. Parias, the Cleric, uses
. It is a staff (verge) whose visible part
is a large, ornate crucifix with
a large ruby
on the end. Like
and Bloodscourge, the Wraithverge needs to be assembled from different segments found throughout the game.
The Wraithverge is the most destructive weapon
in the game. When fired, it shoots a sphere of spiritual energy
which splits into four ghosts (wraiths) that
rend and tear at enemies that
get in their way. The ghosts can, however, be turned against the player if they fire the Wraithverge at any monster that
is in protect mode
(The Heresiarch's reflective barrier, the mage's Icon of the Defender, and Centaur/Slaughtaur in shield stance before the ghosts split from the original projectile) or if they are repelled with
a Disc of Repulsion. The Wraithverge is also the most mana-consuming weapon
in the game, requiring 18 of each kind of mana.
