Trophy Descriptions

  • NA: Magnus is perhaps the mightiest human warrior, and he has weathered countless battles. He seems to prefer working alone, and he can respect the strength of foes like Dark Lord Gaol. However, he seems reluctant—not afraid—to fight Gaol. Is there a connection between these two?
  • EU: With many years of battlefield experience and a tongue just as sharp as his sword, Magnus is an incredible warrior. Nightmares of his past have led him to become a bit of a lone wolf, but when he clashes with Dark Lord Gaol, it's clear there used to be a strong connection between the two.
