Traders' Spurn

Mob19 Icon.pngTraders' Spurn  LORE

The Traders' Spurn is said to be an alchemical powder capable of turning large amounts of people into Ashkin—the undead.

It is said that the people of Sil'dih developed it near the end of the War of the Sisters due to their inability to contend with the Ul'dahns' superior numbers. [1]

In the fifth year of the Seventh Umbral Era, Garibald the Fargone and his men attempted to attain the Traders' Spurn by trading it for the stolen crown of Sultana Nanamo Ul Namo. They were felled by the Sultansworn. [2]

Though Ul'dahn history tells one tale, the truth of the War of the Sisters tells another entirely.

In reality, the Traders' Spurn was developed by Ul'dah to turn the people of Sil'dih into zombies and unleashed by the Ul'dahn army upon the unsuspecting citizens of the city-state to calamitous effect.

In the final days before the city was razed to the ground, a band of survivors stored a large quantity of the powder from the Ul'dahn vaults, hiding it away in a secret vault sealed with powerful magicks. Opening the vault would require the four secret relics of Belah'dia, which were raided from Sil'dihn vaults by the Ul'dahns. [3]
