A Broken Will is a quest composed of three steps that rewards the player with one of three legendary swords: Arc Edge, Sol Edge or Void Edge. The quest can be started after reaching level 38 and completing the quest The Vanguard's Hand.
After a player has obtained one of the legendary swords from this quest, the player can obtain an exotic sword by fully upgrading the legendary sword and infusing it to 280 Attack, which begins the quest A Sword Reforged. Shaxx will also sell the other two legendary swords, so this quest only needs to be completed once.
