The weapon is mentioned in the 2015 Little Ladies' Day event. It is said that the Joyeuse is one of the three swords (the other two being the Curtana and Durandal) forged from the same steel. The swords were once wielded by the three legendary Sultansworn known collectively as the first paladins—great warriors who would attend the Royal House by the hand of Sasagan Ul Sisigan, the founder of the Ul'dahn nation.
