In-Game Description

A mace normally issued to clerics
of the Archdrake sect of Lindeldt.
The land of Lindeldt is governed by
stringent laws, and those who dare defy
them are punished without mercy.
It is often the sinful who seek piety,
spurred only by a selfish desire for salvation.

AvailabilityEdit

Dropped by Lindelt Clerics in the Shrine of Amana.

CharacteristicsEdit

The Archdrake Mace is unique weapon, in that it has the poise damage of a great hammer, the attack power of a normal hammer, and the moveset of a halberd. However, this weapon cannot be used to stab from behind a shield like certain halberds can, although it can thrust with the one-handed weak attack.

It also helps that it has the most poise damage out of any weapon with its weight, making it extremely useful when fighting opponents with heavy armor, it is unfortunate however, that the Archdrake mace deals very little damage, has a shorter range than most halberds, and has no counter strength damage.

The real utility of the Archdrake Mace comes when you need to deal consistent Strike damage against heavily-armored opponents. Because it has the moveset of a Halberd, it swings faster than most weapons of its class, albeit having lesser damage than most weapons of its class. Likewise, the two-handed power attack (that of a Halberd's) is extremely useful because it is not as badly impeded by the Shaft-and-Head damage mechanic of Halberd-type weapons. The damage reduction, if the shaft hits your target, is grossly mitigated compared to full-fledged Halberds. Players who are used to the pros and cons of a Halberd will find this weapon attractive to use.
