Was there any doubt?
There’s really no other choice for me. The sword of evil’s bane is by far my favorite weapon in any game. The Arthurian homages, the powers of the sword to reflect evil (Tennis, anyone?) and the various means of acquiring the sword make it one of the most epic pieces of loot. It was the Master Sword, after all, that really opened my eyes to just how satisfying getting “phat loot”, as it is called in parlance of our times, really is. Fire flowers come and go. A new power is dandy, but it’s just a way to beat the next boss. The Master Sword is a game changer.
