The Sun-Lute of the Phoenix King is an epic two-handed axe that can only be purchased from the Black Market Auction House. It has a chance to be posted by Sig Nicious for the opening bid of 70,000g, and can be found inside the  [Unclaimed Black Market Container] as well.


Upon equipping this weapon, it can be right-clicked to trigger the Sun-Lute's Song effect, transforming the bearer into Sig Nicious. This effect lasts 12 seconds and has a 1 minute cooldown.
