Terrasaur maul detail.png

The terrasaur maul is a tier 80 two-handed maul, however it performs as a tier 97[1] maul against ranged classed enemies. It is crafted from the tribal fin, superior long bone, and volcanic fragments, obtained from the Oculi apoterrasaur, Pavosaurus rex, and Malletops respectively from the Big Game Hunter activity on Anachronia. It can be augmented by using an augmentor on it. This weapon is the melee equivalent of the Hexhunter bow and Inquisitor staff.

It has two passive effects which can appear as a debuff on the target being affected by the buff:

  • +12.5% damage boost against ranged-classed enemies.
  • +10% hit chance boost against ranged-classed enemies.

The terrasaur maul gives no boost against other players in the Wilderness.

This item degrades to a broken, repairable state over 60,000 charges of combat. The base repair cost is 2,000,000 coins for a full repair, which is scaled to how damaged it is. It can be repaired by a Repair NPC, or for cheaper on an armour stand/whetstone.

Recommended Bosses[edit | edit source]

The Terrasaur maul is recommended for the following boss fights as it is the best-in-slot 2-handed melee weapon for these bosses and can be useful for maximizing damage output where it is most crucial. Due to its boost against ranged-classed bosses, it performs with tier 96-98 damage and accuracy, and so on average performs as a T97 weapon.

It is worth noting that the majority of bosses that are susceptible to the maul's effect have reasonably high affinities for melee attacks. As a result, 100% hit chance can be easily achieved for most of these bosses; some even without the use of the berserker or supreme brawler auras and/or a blood nihil. The terrasaur maul performs slightly better against targets where hit chance is 100% compared to targets where it is not.

Maul boost Boss Area Maul tier Notes
Yes check.svg Masuta the Ascended Temple of Aminishi T97 Best-in-slot melee weapon against Masuta, but falls back to T80 against the thrashing waters.
X mark.svg Thrashing water T80
Yes check.svg The Sanctum Guardian Temple of Aminishi T97 Best-in-slot melee weapon against the Sanctum Guardian. Crassian reinforcements that spawn are also susceptible to the maul's effect.

Note that AoE abilties such as Cleave, Hurricane and Quake will only hit properly if attacking the Sanctum Guardian from the south side.

X mark.svg Seiryu, the Azure Serpent Temple of Aminishi T80 Although ineffective against Seiryu itself, it is the best-in-slot weapon against the black crystals, which must be destroyed as quickly as possible to avoid prolonging the fight.
Yes check.svg Black crystal T97
Yes check.svg Verak Lith Dragonkin Laboratory T97 Best-in-slot melee weapon against Verak Lith himself, but falls back to T80 against the spires.
X mark.svg Spire T80
Yes check.svg Black stone dragon Dragonkin Laboratory T97 Best-in-slot melee weapon against the Black stone dragon. The four black hands that spawn are also susceptible, but extra caution should be taken when attacking them from melee distance.
Yes check.svg Taraket the Necromancer The Shadow Reef T97 Best-in-slot melee weapon against Taraket himself, but falls back to T80 against the bloated monstrosity, corpse carrier, and summoned skeletons.

Summoned skeleton archers are susceptible, however.

X mark.svg Bloated monstrosity T80
X mark.svg Corpse carrier T80
Yes check.svg The Ambassador The Shadow Reef T97 Best-in-slot melee weapon against the Ambassador himself, but falls back to T80 against the sinister fragments.
X mark.svg Sinister fragment T80
Yes check.svg Dagannoth Supreme Waterbirth Island Dungeon T97 Best-in-slot weapon against Dagannoth Supreme. Style switches must be brought to deal with the other Dagannoth Kings anyway.
Yes check.svg Kalphite Queen Kalphite Hive T97 Best-in-slot melee weapons against both variants of the Kalphite Queen during the first phase.

Cannot be used in the second phase since the queen uses the Protect from Melee prayer.

Yes check.svg Exiled Kalphite Queen Exiled Kalphite Hive T97

Non-recommended bosses[edit | edit source]

The Terrasaur maul is not recommended for the following boss fights as it only works as a T97 weapon for very limited portions of the fights and/or is outclassed by another weapon.

Maul boost Boss Area Maul tier Notes
X mark.svg Solak The Lost Grove T80 Solak himself is not susceptible to the maul's effect.

With the exceptions of Erethdor within Solak's mind and the blightbound lashers, the rest of the mechanics are also not susceptible to the maul's effect. This includes the volatile rootlings, blight afflicted core, and anima eruptions.

Yes check.svg Erethdor T97
Yes check.svg Gregorovic The Heart of Gielinor T97 Although the maul deals the most damage against Gregorovic and the shadows, the lower reach of the maul compared to a halberd-class weapon makes it difficult to clear the shadows with AoE abilities.

Should only be used for record kills; halberds allow for easier and more reliable melee kills.

Yes check.svg Araxxor Araxyte hive T97 Best-in-slot melee weapon against the ranged form of Araxxor, but falls back to T80 against Araxxi. The ranged form of Araxxor can occasionally use melee attacks when in melee distance, making the maul risky to use at higher enrages.
X mark.svg Araxxi T80
Yes check.svg Kalphite King Exiled Kalphite Hive T97 Only works against the ranged form of the Kalphite King. Due to the stab weakness it acquires in this form, a Keris paired with a T90/T92 off-hand weapon and a Desert Amulet 4 equipped offers comparable damage and better accuracy. Nevertheless, the maul is very effective for this form, just not outstandingly useful overall.
Yes check.svg Karil the Tainted Barrows T97 The effect only works against Karil, and is ineffective against the other 5 barrows brothers, Akrisae and Linza.

This also applies to Barrows: Rise of the Six.

X mark.svg Verac the Defiled T80
X mark.svg Dharok the Wretched T80
X mark.svg Torag the Corrupted T80
X mark.svg Ahrim the Blighted T80
X mark.svg Guthan the Infested T80
X mark.svg Akrisae the Doomed T80
X mark.svg Linza the Disgraced T80
Yes check.svg Nymora, the Vengeful The Heart of Gielinor T97 Although Nymora is susceptible to the maul's effect, Avaryss is not.
It is worth noting, however, that a lot of damage can be bursted onto Nymora at the start of the fight with the maul boost.
X mark.svg Avaryss, the Unceasing T80

Repair cost[edit | edit source]

The base repair cost of the Terrasaur maul when completely degraded to 0.0% item charge is 2,000,000 coins. It can be repaired by:

Alternatively, it can be repaired on an armour stand in a player-owned house, or a whetstone device anywhere. This provides a discount of 0.5% per Smithing level (including boosts).

If it is only partially degraded, then the cost of a full repair is multiplied by the percentage of item charge that needs to be repaired to produce the current repair cost.

  1. ^ Tier 97 is an estimate as this changes based on various buffs and other worn equipment. The 12.5% damage boost is a multiplier that is applied to the player's base ability damage. For example if, you're 99 strength without any armor bonus or potion boosts, then: , thus: where 1.125 is the Terrasaur maul buff which results in an effective base ability damage of 1713.
