Unusable Description: The holy sword that has evolved from the Caliburn. It's said to be somehow connected to the ancient Partholonian race. It currently cannot be used.
Usable Description: A weapon evolved from the Caliburn. The power of the Caliburn is actualized in the Brionac. To restore the Brionac, the wielder must sacrifice a portion of their ability. The Brionac is activated when it absorbs a certain amount of electrical energy. The Brionac loses durability simply by being equipped.

- Despite being a Two-Handed Sword, Elves are capable of wielding it.
- Brionac's Durability can't be increased through the use of Hammers of Durability, such as the Golden Hammer of Durability, Platinum Hammer of Durability, and Crystal Hammer of Durability.
- When the player is under the effects of Shock and/or Awakening of Light and then equips Brionac, the Brionac Awakens, increasing the Damage, Critical Hit Rate, Balance, Splash Range and Splash Radius of Brionac considerably.
- However, the rate of Durability loss also increases.
- While the increased Critical and Balance do not appear on the character screen, it is still applied.
- If Shock was boosted with the Elemental Wave skill, the Brionac also gains increased Splash Range.
- The increased splash range from an Elemental Wave imbued Shock will persist past the boost's normal duration, lasting until the Brionac is unequipped.
- The actual Shock skill itself will be absorbed when equipping Brionac, regardless of the remaining duration of Shock.
- This means that the lightning produced by Shock won't be in effect if the Brionac is equipped while the player is under the effects of Shock.
- Shock's effect on Brionac lasts 3 minutes, while Awakening of Light's effect lasts for the entire duration.
- The Shock's effect on the Brionac will disappear if the player unequips it from their main-hand in any way.
- If the player removes the Brionac from their main-hand while under the effects of Awakening of Light, they can re-Awaken the Brionac by re-equipping the weapon.
- When Awakened, either through Shock or Awakening of Light, each attack of Brionac reduces enemies' Protection by 3 permanently. Each attack can stack and can effectively reduce a monster's Protection to 0 if used enough times.
- This only applies to Protection because Magic Protection was introduced after the Brionac. See Seal: Pragarah for a similar ability that can reduce Magic Protection.
- For example, the Black Dragon has 120 Protection. Each hit from Brionac reduces 3 Protection, so it will take 40 hits from an Awakened Brionac to reduce its Protection to 0.
- With the exception of Raid Bosses, monsters that are in field maps are immune to protection reduction.
- Bosses from Tech Duinn Missions, Veteran Dungeons, Crom Bás, and Kerune have a limit to the amount of Protection that can be removed by Brionac.
- The limit is a percentage of the monsters' original Protection, e.g. if the boss has 180 Protection and a limit of 20%, only 36 Protection can be removed by Brionac.
- For most Tech Duinn Bosses and Kerune, this limit is 20%.
- For Veteran Dungeon Bosses, this limit is 25%.
- For Subject Theta, this limit is 10%.
- A message will appear on screen if the player tries to attack with an Awakened Brionac after the limit has been reached, saying "The enemy's Protection isn't cracking, even with Brionac's strength."
- The Awakened Brionac is ineffective against Apostle Raids, players, pets, and Field Monsters (not Field Bosses).
- This effect is sometimes referred to as peel, cut, or brio by the community.
- Certain features are only accessible when the Brionac is Awakened through casting Shock on the Brionac user or by using Awakening of Light with the Brionac equipped.
- The interface will appear in the lower left hand corner of the screen.
- If the player's Brionac is at 0 Durability, the interface will not appear.
- The player must have hit "Complete" on the Uroboros quest in order to view the Brionac's interface.
- There are 4 buttons on the interface: Spear of God, Skill Training, Restoration, and Falias Warp.
- When the player is using Brionac and is under the effects of Awakening of Light, a special version of Spear of Light called "Spear of God" can be used, dealing approximately 7 times more damage than Spear of Light. However, this will use additional durability.
- This effect is increased further when Brionac is under the influence of Shock.
- This effect only occurs when the player chooses to use Spear of Light via the Brionac interface.
- This is only available if the player is under the effects of Awakening of Light and has their powers aligned with Neamhain.
- This cannot be used if the player is only under the effect of Shock (and not Awakening of Light) and/or has their power aligned with Morrighan.
- While the Brionac is awakened through Shock or Awakening of Light, the player can sacrifice some of Brionac's Durability to automatically train a skill once every 12 hours in real time.
- This is performed by clicking the second icon on the Brionac's interface, then by selecting which skill and requirement the player wishes to train.
- The skill cannot be Rank 1, 1 Dan, 2 Dan, or 3 Dan.
- The player will be prompted to choose a skill to train.
- Skills which are eligible will be flashing.
- Upon choosing a skill, the player must choose a Training Method for that skill.
- The Proficiency bar will show the amount of Experience increase when training the selected Training Method.
- A message will appear, confirming the player's decision and informing them about the amount of Durability that the Brionac will lose.
- The player will receive 10% of the total counts of training for the Training Method they chose, or a number equivalent to 10 Skill Proficiency Points, whichever is lower.
- The player must have already trained at least 30% of the particular Training Method themselves.
- Skill requirements that must be fulfilled less than 10 times total may not be trained.
- Transformation Skills and Book/Quest-based Skill requirements cannot be trained.
- Most skills reduce 0.25 Durability when trained in this manner. The table below shows some known exceptions.
- The player may repair Brionac on their own while under the effects of either Shock or Awakening of Light. It costs 4 AP to repair a single point at a 100% success rate.
- Alternatively, the Brionac can be repaired by Dorren in Tailteann at the same cost of 4 AP per point at a 100% success rate. Dorren is the only NPC capable of repairing Brionac.
- This is performed by selecting the third icon on the Brionac interface, then choosing how many points of Durability to restore.
- If the player's Brionac is at 0 Durability, the Brionac's interface won't appear even if they're currently under the effects of Shock or Awakening of Light, meaning that they will be unable to repair using the Brionac's interface.
- The Brionac then must be repaired at Dorren in order for it to be used again.
- When using Shock or Awakening of Light, the player may create the Portal of Falias after completing Generation 12.
- This is performed by clicking the fourth icon on the Brionac interface.
- If the player has not yet finished Generation 12, the Falias Warp button will not appear.
- This will consume 1 Falias Fragment. If the player has no Falias Fragments in their inventory, this ability will not do anything.
- This is performed by clicking the fourth icon on the Brionac interface.
- Brionac (pronounced /briʌnax/) likely translates into dreamy or forgery. Brionn/Brinn refers to falsehoods, visions, and dreams while ach transforms existing nouns or adjectives into words meaning belonging to or having.
- The name Brionac for Lugh's Spear appears to have been a Japanese invention from the 1990s.
- Brionac is the name of the weapon that Lugh Lavada used to fight the Fomorians in the Second Battle of Mag Tuireadh.
- Aer says the blade is also known as the "Light of the Dark Sun".
- The Falias Gatekeeper says Falias was named "Brionac" in the beginning of time.
- In every cutscene in which the Brionac is held (aside from the player equipped with it before engaging the cutscene), the wielder will treat the weapon as a One-Handed Sword although it is a Two-Handed Sword.
