—Description, Vagrant Story

The Holy Win (ホーリーウィン, Hōrī Uin?) is the strongest great sword obtainable in Vagrant Story.

Appearance in Vagrant StoryEdit

The Holy Win is one of Ultimate Weapons of Vagrant Story, being the strongest weapon of the Greatsword weapon type. Alone, the Holy Win provides 35 to Strength, -6 to Agility, a Range of 6, and a Risk cost of 2, compared to its preceding weapons, the Rune Sword and Nodachi, whose Risk cost is 3.

Obtaining The Holy WinEdit

It is wielded by the first form of Guildenstern and cannot be won from this fight. It is obtainable on second play by entering The Iron Maiden B2 with less than 150 health and defeating the Last Crusader at the entrance to B3. The drop rate for The Holy Win is between 1 and 3%, and as such, it is extremely difficult to obtain.


The Holy Win has curious combination properties. The only Holy Win winnable in game is made out of Damascus and combining it with nearly any other blade will result in that blade in Damascus. Example: An Iron Scimitar combined with the Holy Win will result in a Damascus Scimitar.

Allusions and AppearancesEdit

The Holy Win is alluded to elsewhere in the Ivalice Alliance.

Massive is the only word adequate to describe this cross-bladed sword.

The sword appears again in the Tactics Advance series, this time named Xankbras. Its tier has lowered however, providing 39 Attack, yet still provides immunity to the Poison aliment.
