Acharn Render (updated)

Acharn is the primary stealth weapon in Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor.

The hilt-piece of Dirhael's shattered sword, the broken blade is still a lethal implement, re-named Acharn, meaning "vengeance" in Sindarin, and likewise re-purposed as a silent implement to enact its namesake upon Sauron's armies.

As with Talion's other weapons, Acharn can be upgraded using runes, giving it unique bonuses that allow for more efficient use in stealth or combat.

Upon completing half (5/10) of the respective Legend quests, the blade is re-forged by the Wraith and gains a new aesthetic appearance. Upon completing all the respective legend quests, it is wholly reforged, and gains a more elvish appearance.

Elvish Inscription Edit

Once all inscriptions are unlocked on the blade, the Sindarin inscription reads as follows:

Sigil thurin vin fuin

"A dagger secret in the night"

Gruithol egyn i boe dadannathar na hereg.

"Terrifying evildoers who must give back with blood.

Dulaf naeg a mernida caran.

Swallows pain and red becomes black."

TriviaEdit

  • Acharn, before being reforged, was previously the shattered sword of Talion's son, Dirhael.
  • Acharn means Vengeance in the Elven language of Sindarin.
  • Like the sword, Urfael, the five "runes" engraved on Acharn's cross-hilt spell out its name in Elvish Tengwar using Full Sindarin Mode. This matches the origin of its Sindarin name.
  • Acharne (the alleged derivative for the Elvish word) is French for "perseverance".
