Powerful weapons like these usually have ancient origins and are related to as artifacts, often created by the gods themselves. The story of the vampire’s tear, however, is different. It is a tale of a determined boy, full of grief and pain.
Brandon once had a happy and loving family. They had a wooden hut close to the woods and a lake, where they shared the joy of everyday life, not knowing that darkness would fall upon their ordinary lives.
Then came a night so dark, that even the pleasant sounds of the forest and lake couldn’t be heard through the pitch black surroundings. The air around had a foul smell. People never believed in the creatures of darkness. Vampires were only a myth, with mysterious disappearances being a normality back in the days. Tragically, Brandon’s family had to find out the hard way that they were anything but a myth. His father fought bravely to fight off the blood thirsty creatures. Suddenly the air around them seemed to disappear, as it was hard to breathe. Only red, glowing eyes and a pale face could be seen in the darkness. Yes – the vampire lord himself came out of his hiding to feast on humans.
Brandon’s last memory of this dreadful day were his father’s final words – “run…son…run and don’t look back…”.
His life has changed. The days were full of hunger, fear and a memory. A memory that clinged onto him so hard over the years, that it changed the boy into a man with a single goal in mind – to avenge his family. He spent all of his free time training and perfecting his skills in various fighting arts. Hunting and survival let him perfect his movements and develop unique and incredible distance weapon skills. This alone allowed him to hunt down his enemies during the night. Many had fallen to Brandon’s deadly rage. This, however, was not enough to face the creature that killed his family.
Brandon set out on a mission to create the perfect weapon. He spent 2 years working hard and gaining the trust of the rebellious pirates of Liberty Bay. His compassion and loyalty helped him in gaining their trust. This resulted in his visit to Sabrehaven and metting with Chodur, who helped him with creating a blessed stake, which he could use for the core of his weapon. The elves helped him with creating the limbs and string of the crossbow. Their craftsmanship and magical skills were matched by no one. He then set out for Formorgar mines, where he spend several months looking for a precious metal. It wasn’t gold that he was looking for though. It was said that even the dwarven of Kazordoon were jelaous of the silver that could be found in the mines. It had the purity and strength that would rival the ones of the diamond. He used it to coat the tip of his crossbow and the bolts. Brandon’s sneakiness and skills allowed him to enter the Cobra Bastion, where he managed to steal a mirror from Scarlett Etzel’s private quarters. This would allow for reflecting the tiniest bits of sunlight at his enemies with ten times the strength.
He set out and travelled all around Tibia, seeking the wisdom and holy blessing of powerful priests and monks. The weapon was complete. Not by a God, with supernatural powers, but by a boy, through years of dedication, hunger, sweat, blood and hard work.
Nobody really knows if Brandon succeeded. It isn’t entirely clear if the weapon was as powerful as it was claimed to be. It was supposedly found many years later inside an old hut in the woods, near a lake. Nobody has seen or heard of the boy again. It seemed that he disappeared into thin air, along with the vampires he swore to slay. Only myths and stories remain.
This deadly weapon was crafted with a single use in mind - to slay undead creatures who feast on innocent blood. The crossbow's attributes make it a perfect choice for killing vampire bosses, even the strongest and most fearsome ones like the Pale Count.
The whole construction has been infused with holy water, the tip of the bolt and crossbow itself are made of wood coated with pure silver and garlic extract. Any enemy that gets hit or stabbed will face an agonizing and quick death, as vampires show incredible weakness to these items.
It's shaped like a cross, as vampires fear religious symbols:
The implementation of a mirror can also be used to exploit another huge weakness of true vampires - sunlight. Use it wisely and you might just be able to direct it at your enemies even in the darkest of places.
Here are all the items that I've used: a headphone stand (had to disassemble it), some cardboard, 2 plastic fly traps, some masking tape, aluminium film, pocket mirror, bbq sticks, piece of wood (which holds my door open), some wire, a frying pan scoop and some leftover plastidip.
The creation process:
Added the string and fully assembled the crossbow:
Coated with the dip, let it dry for 24h:
Added decorative black and red wool, worked on the details:
I'd like to thank tibiabosses for organising this contest, I had a lot of fun with creating this weapon, especially in these worrying times.
4th place: Wand of Elves Revenge by Vussia (Harmonia)
You see Wand of Elves Revenge (anti-ogre level +2)
It can only be wielded properly by True friend of Elves.
It weights 53.00 oz
It holds blessings from many elves gods, even Krunor itself added something special (some say even piece of his own heart)
This weapon was created to defeat Warlord Ruzad
The 5th Elven cultural group was Cheladbil. They didnt exist anymore. Today in the areas where they lived is strong orcish presence. The Orcs had elvish items which were their war trophies. They wore the throphies as a proof that they had defeat Cheladbil.
After extinction of the Cheladbil other elves were so sad and unhappy that they began to pray to the one of the greatest elvish god Crunor and other gods so they had helped them to revenge Orcs and to defeat Warlord Ruzad who killed the Cheladbils.
Crunor heard the elves' prayers and decided to help them in revenge, he promissed to send the elven chosen one and together with other elven gods create the most powerful magic weapon.
Even some of the celestial paladins take a part in creating this mystical wand.
(In Elvish history seven elven lords acquired the status of celestial paladins and therefore are godlike beings)
Nera - the lady of spring gives the flowers to the wand, with hidden magic from fire and ice to heat and cool the way of revenge of the chosen one who will wiled this magic weapon
Priyla - the daughter of the stars, mystery and magic gives her most beloved star to light up the way even in the darkest night.
Krynierr - the silver tongue, poetry, love and music covered the weappon in silver to strenghten the wand
Mortiur - the ravager. The avenger, merciless against friend and foe gave a special power
