Sword Skins Collection Pt. 1

I sorely miss Darzil's Crafting Guide. Most players at the time went there to see armor skins, usually in full sets, but some went there for weapons. (Using weapons cosmetically back then was strictly for RP purposes.) You could find anything crafted or bartered there up to level 65. By the time Isengard had been released, somewhere around 2012, the person running Darzil's had decided to step down. He had informed the community of his decision and offered to keep the site running, so long as someone else was willing to come forward and actively work on the site. Darzil's remained active for another three years, closing in 2015 because the people who expressed a desire to take over performed no work whatsoever.

It was a significant loss suffered by the cosmetic and crafting community. At the time, the loss of armor visuals were felt far more keenly than the weapons. Several months later, in late 2015/early 2016, cosmetic weapon overlays were introduced, adding salt to the proverbial wound. Myndariel, bless her soul, has been gradually working on a visual crafting guide over the past couple of years. It's still far from finished, but it's the closest the community has gotten to Darzil's.

I will try to do my best. Just like with the staves I recently shared, I'll show you my collection of swords and where I found them, along with other places they appear. Here's the first part!

And as usual, if you know of another weapon shares the same skin and isn't listed below, let me know!
