  • Maces benefit from the weapon finesse feat.
  • Maces are traditionally favored by clerics due to their effectiveness in smashing undead.


Fist of the Legion Edit

A set of these weapons was originally created for the Sword Coast Legion, a league of clerics and paladins who fought the orc multitudes in the Year of the Black Horde, 1235 DR.

Kiss of Sune Edit

A boon to the devout, this mace and others like it exude the grace and power of the Lady of Love, Sune. A service of great importance is usually required to warrant such a gift, as the creation of powerful items is costly to any faith.

  • Enhancement bonus: +1
  • On-hit: hold (DC=14) (50% / 2 rounds)
  • Required level: 10

Lesser Mace of Disruption Edit

Possibly the singular most popular weapon amongst the ranks of Lathander's clerics, the mace of disruption is the bane of the undead. It is rumored that the last cleric carrying such a weapon in Thay was caught by Szazz Tam and flayed alive, before being turned into a zombie servant.

Notes: Requires Shadows of Undrentide.

Mace of Disruption +2 Edit

This weapon bears the mark of the dwarf Marrok, Master Blacksmith of Neverwinter's Shining Knight Arms and Armor. He forged it early in 1373 DR, to aid the heroes who sought to free his quarantined city from the virulent grasp of the so-called Wailing Death.

  • Enhancement bonus: +1
  • Enhancement bonus: +2 versus undead
  • Required level: 5

Mace of Disruption +5 Edit

This weapon bears the mark of the dwarf Barun, a Master Blacksmith who worked from a makeshift forge in the Uthgardt village of Beorunna's Well. He forged it late in 1373 DR, to aid the war effort against Lady Aribeth the Betrayer, who was then marching against the northern city of Neverwinter and the Lords' Alliance.

Mace of Disruption +8 Edit

The bane of all undead, the mace of disruption, interferes with the magic animating undead. Sometimes this means that it does increased damage to undead, while other times it destroys the creature entirely. These weapons are often highly sought after by the priests of Lathander, who hunt undead with great zeal. Those who distinguish themselves as undead hunters are occasionally rewarded with one of these powerful maces.

  • Damage bonus: +d10 fire damage versus undead
  • Enhancement bonus: +3
  • Enhancement bonus: +8 versus undead
  • On-hit: slay undead (DC=20)
  • Required level: 23

Note: Requires Hordes of the Underdark.

Petty's Tempest Edit

The most recent recorded appearance of one of these weapons was in the black markets of Amn, rightfully commanding an impressive price. Several such maces have been found over time, each with an array of elemental spells and effects woven through them. The creator remains elusive, though the name "Petty" is evident on each example. It is possible he is a smith on Toril, but his obvious understanding of planar forces suggests a more traveled origin.

  • Damage bonus: +d6 electrical damage
  • Enhancement bonus: +2
  • On-hit: slow (DC=14) (50% / 2 rounds)
  • Required level: 14

Planar Mace Edit

No one knows for certain where these maces originate. Perhaps they come from the outer planes to help the righteous of Faerûn defend their home, or perhaps their arrival here is simply an accident. Regardless of their origin, they are unusually effective against creatures from other planes of existence.

  • Enhancement bonus: +2
  • Enhancement bonus: +4 versus outsiders
  • Required level: 11

Soldier's Might Edit

It is said that lieutenants in the armies of Algarond were given these weapons, but not told of the flaws in their design. Many of the wielders died, but all fought valiantly and were accorded the honor of heroes of the realm. The generals responsible for these flawed weapons escaped punishment, and today they are remembered among the revered dead.
