Sanctum Mace

sanctum mace

In-Game Description

A mace wielded by sanctum soldiers.

This mace was corrupted by poison
when Sinh, the slumbering dragon, awoke.

A mere mortal would be asphyxiated
by the poison emitted when wielding
this mace, but for the noxious sanctum
soldiers, this fact matters none.

Availability

Notes

  • The self-inflicting Poison can be useful when using the Red Tearstone Ring, e.g. before boss fights.
  • Like all Hammers and most Great Hammers it can't be infused with Bleed.
    • You can still deal bleed damage by enchanting it with a Bleeding Serum though.

Aux Effect:

The Aux Effect stat dictates how effective the weapon will be at causing the effect. The Aux Effect stats for a weapon are A / B:

Counter Strength: Damage multiplier when hitting an enemy that is performing an action such as attacking. Value of 100 means no extra damage.
Poise Damage: The ability of the weapon to break the poise of an enemy.
Stats Needed:

The Stats Needed determines how high various Stats must be in order to wield the weapon effectively.
The stats required for a weapon are A / B / C / D:

Wielding a weapon without the required Strength and/or Dexterity will incur a penalty to the Physical damage of the weapon,
while lower-than-required Magic and/or Faith will reduce the Magic damage of the weapon.

Also keep in mind that your character gains a 100% bonus to Strength by wielding a weapon with both hands, thus reducing
the actual Strength required. For example, a character with 14 Strength can wield a Great Club (Requires 28 Strength)
properly if the weapon is held with both hands. (14 x 2 = 28)
