The ancient mace is a weapon that can be acquired during the Another Slice of H.A.M. quest and requires completion of the quest to wield. If lost it can be retrieved from the goblin archaeologist Tegdak for 1,000 coins, north-east of the Dorgesh-Kaan marketplace. The generals in Goblin Village will also sell the mace to players who lose it during the quest for 1,000 coins. The ancient mace has stats in between those of an iron mace and a steel mace.

Special attack[edit | edit source]

The ancient mace's special attack, Favour of the War God

The ancient mace shares a special attack with its superior variant known as Favour of the War God. It hits through Protect from Melee dealing 40-200% ability damage. Successful attacks will drain the Prayer points of the opponent by 10% and increase your own by the same percentage, even if there is no points to drain. This special attack costs 100% adrenaline to perform. The special attack works against Sigmund in Dominion Tower.
