The Arkhalis is a sword obtained underground from a destructible object similar to the Sword in the Stone, though the Enchanted Sword is also obtainable from the same object. Due to the rarity of the sword, the stone having a 1/3 chance of a real sword, then the Arkhalis having a 1/10 chance after the 1/3, it may be difficult to acquire.
The Arkhalis doesn't swing or jab like most swords, it instead creates a blur of swipes towards the mouse pointer.
It is unable to be enchanted with size modifiers, therefore the best prefix is godly.
Due to the nature of the Arkhalis it is very proficient against worm-like enemies, such as the Eater of Worlds.
Using the weapon provides light.
It has a 1/10 chance to drop from the shrine that drops the Enchanted Sword, making this weapon much rarer than the Enchanted Sword.
The weapon is named after Arkhalis, the quality director of Re-Logic.
The description of Arkhalis is in reference to how Crissaegrim ("Valmanway" in later titles) is obtained in Castlevania: Symphony Of The Night, along with the icon, effect, and rarity.
