- —Official Description
Events of The Two Thrones
When the Scythians are transformed by the Sands of Time, Zurvan presupposes some of the Scythian Swordsman into Sand Creatures that guard Sand Gates, travel points that Zurvan uses to communicate with his army.
When the Prince discovers the Sand Gates and how Zurvan uses them, he begins quickly dispatching the Sand Gate Guards throughout the city and obtaining Sands through the Sand Gates whenever he seals them off using the Dagger of Time.
The Sand Gate Guard's weapon's is a secondary weapon used primarily by Sand Gate Guards that patrol the Sand Gates. While one of the weaker secondary weapons obtained by the player, the sword's special ability that allows the Prince to regenerate his Sand Tanks makes it a crucial weapon in certain circumstances.
