Morrigan's throwing axe detail.png

Morrigan's throwing axe is part of the Morrigan's equipment, obtained from killing Revenants in the Forinthry Dungeon and as a very rare drop from the Chaos Elemental. It was released on 15 October 2008 during the PvP worlds update.

Unlike most of the Ancient Warriors' equipment, Morrigan's throwing axes do not degrade as they are a stackable weapon.

The Morrigan's throwing axe can be upgraded to the superior Morrigan's throwing axe using an ancient warriors' equipment patch. This upgrades it to tier 88, and makes it augmentable. 100 axes are needed to make the upgraded version, which degrades with charges of combat and is retained upon use (like a Sunspear). However, the superior version degrades to dust.

Morrigan's javelin and throwing axe are the third strongest non-degradeable thrown weapons, after Death Lotus darts and Elite Death Lotus darts. Morrigan's equipment is tradeable and do not have the other requirements associated with the latter, but lacks offhand counterparts.

Special Attack[edit | edit source]

The Morrigan's throwing axe special attack, Hamstring

Morrigan's throwing axes have a special attack called Hamstring, requiring 50% adrenaline to use. The attack can deal up to 20% more damage and also inflicts a debuff that also causes the target's run energy to drain ten times as fast for one minute. This makes it extremely useful against fleeing players who aren't under the effects of the Oo'glog saltwater pool, stamina potion or Endurance relic perk.

Similarly to the javelins, they are not consumed when the special attack is used, compared to Vesta's longsword, Statius's warhammer and Zuriel's staff, which lose 0.1% of their charge for every special used.

Note: Despite causing a debuff, there is no icon indicating that the player's run energy will drain significantly faster.
