The Sword of a Thousand Truths is a virtual sword seen in the Season Ten episode, "Make Love, Not Warcraft", shown to be in the online role playing game World of Warcraft.

In "Make Love, Not Warcraft", it was said that the sword was planned to be put in the game, but was cancelled due to it being too powerful. It was subsequently stored on a 1 gigabyte flash drive. An employee named Salzman, a worker in Blizzard's accounting sector, created a prophecy that one day those who were worthy of holding the sword would appear.

The boys were later forced to fight a "griefer" named Jenkins. Blizzard Entertainment allowed Randy Marsh's character to carry it, in order to give it to Stan. Stan then defeats Jenkins by using the sword in battle.

Appearance

The weapon appears as a large sword, with a blue glow, that can unleash a series of attacks to another player.

Trivia

  • According to the staff during the show, the sword deals 120 damage per second, gives a boost of +80 Stamina, and can instantly drain an opponent's mana on a successful hit.
  • Since the airing of "Make Love, Not Warcraft", the Sword of a Thousand Truths was featured in the World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade beta test as a reward to the game's arena system, although it did not have the same capabilities as in the show. The in-game caption read "Finely crafted to Salzman's specification".
  • The Sword of a Thousand Truths has the same apperance as another sword, "The Hungering Cold."
    • A sword called "Slayer of the Lifeless" was added later, also using The Hungering Cold's appearance. While it doesn't have the same abilities as the Sword of a Thousand Truths, it has the flavor text "As Foretold by Salzman" and it's name references Jenkins, who was deemed to have "no life."
  • The Sword of a Thousand Truths was also recreated for the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game, as part of its Fires of Outland set. The card has a similar power to its episodic counterpart, where upon dealing damage to the opponent, the opponent must discard all cards in their hand.
    • The Sword of a Thousand Truths also appears in the "United in Stormwind" expansion of Hearthstone, the online card game inspired by World of Warcraft lore, where it is a reward for having 7 of the player's "Elwynn Boars" die, another reference to the episode. This rendition also has it's power from the South Park episode, destroying all of the opponent's mana as well as dealing immense damage.
  • The Sword of a Thousand Truths also appears in South Park: The Stick of Truth as junk.
