How does Mograine have the Ashbringer when I happen to personally know, and play, the current wielder of the Ashbringer?
So that's just a little bit of confusion over some data mining. Early on when our quest designers are putting in content, we don't always have the final models for things. And so, for a while, they were using a version of one of the Ashbringer appearances, but recently we put in a unique sword for Mograine. It still looks similar to the Ashbringer, but it's not the Ashbringer - It's actually a sword called Fatebringer.
One of the storylines that you’ll see as you’re playing through the different Covenants... in Maldraxxus for example - that is a culture that celebrates who you were in life and the accomplishments that you had - Maldraxxus is all about striving to climb this pyramid and become the best that you can be. And so it was natural for Alexandros Mograine, the original Ashbringer, to fashion himself a sword that recalled the blade that had made him famous long ago. There are some questlines that people haven't played yet, where it calls out the name of that sword, but it is not the Ashbringer. It's something that he had forged for himself in Maldraxxxus.
> Can you tell me more about Alexandros's sword?
Fatebringer, eh? I made it for him when he was named baron. He wanted somethin' similar to what he used in life. Based on yer reaction, I'm guessin' you recognize the shape a bit. I guess if I shared a title with a sword I'd be pretty attached to it.
It's one of my finer creations. Alexandros fought hard to come by some of the materials that went into it. Not sure where the skull came from, but it's certainly not from Maldraxxus.
Alexandros Mograine: Renault. My eldest... my demise.
Alexandros Mograine: His betrayal haunts me, even in death. My son... Would this pain be best forgotten?
Alexandros Mograine: Please... let us move on.
Xandria: The Arbiter saw that your memories are not a burden, but your source of strength. This is why you belong in Maldraxxus.
Alexandros Mograine: I see that now. Honor may have forsaken Maldraxxus... but together, we will restore what has been lost!
