Archemorus is a figure from Luxon history. According to the stories, he slew Shiro the Betrayer single handedly.

In reality Archemorus was one of the three who combined forces to defeat the vastly powerful Shiro. After Vizu disarmed Shiro, Archemorus and the Kurzick hero Saint Viktor each took up one of Shiro's Blades and slew him, releasing the infamous Jade Wind, which killed all three heroes as well as devastated Cantha.

After his death, his bones were made into the Spear of Archemorus. In the present, the Luxons honor their most famous champion's memory by keeping the Spear of Archemorus in the Boreas Seabed.


  • Archemorus was a figure in Ancient Greek mythology, in which he is more commonly known as Opheltes. Archemorus literally means "the forerunner of death".
  • When released from the spear, he appears to wear a ghostly version of Warrior Elite Luxon armor and wielding a spectral version of the spear.
  • An image of him alive can be seen in the Factions Trailer Cinematic from here.
