The Bastard Sword is the king of 1-handed swords, and perhaps the king of 1-handed weapons in the game. It is by far the most popular sword type with Warriors, with its damage range being decent, while still allowing shield usage. It is impossible to top its stats without access to Hellfire and the Barbarian class, and even then, it may not be a wise move for them.
