它有一招名為Mauler 的特殊攻击，V模式下造成50%点伤害at the cost of 9 more action points，不过有更高的几率击倒对手。
The Blade of the East can successfully strike about 3995 times from full condition before breaking.
- The Legate has a different version of this weapon (confirmed by the GECK) that is not meant for the player to have, as when the player attempts to take the weapon from the Legate's corpse, a "Blade of the East" is instead added to the player's inventory (the ID of the Legate's blade is 0013e4de).
- Lanius' unique version of this weapon has a base damage of 65, a critical damage of 30, and a damage per second of 102. Lanius himself often inflicts more than 100 points of damage per hit with his sword.
- The sword cannot be pickpocketed from Lanius.
- Salt-Upon-Wounds' power fist is the only other weapon that would normally come with a poison effect.
- The value of the sword is low compared to its great power and comparable weapons. This is most likely because the weapon loses its value/use as the game soon ends.
If the player is in some places where Lanius can't hit you, Lanius will eventually equip a pistol, causing the Blade of the East to disappear. [已核实]
