The Morning Star is a hammer in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Hammer with a sharp spike on its pommel. One of the more barbaric cleric weapons.
The effect of these spikes makes this strike-based weapon also cause bleeding.

AvailabilityEdit

Found in a chest in Firelink Shrine. To reach the chest, the player must drop below the elevator that leads to the Undead Parish. To return to the bonfire, one must make a small drop into the graveyard, aggroing two Skeletons in the process.

CharacteristicsEdit

The Morning Star is essentially a Reinforced Club with the Mace's moveset, albeit with lower damage and higher durability. Like the Mace, the Morning Star deals excellent Poise damage per hit and can stun-lock even the most heavily armored opponents.

One of the advantages the Morning Star has is that it's the easiest Strike weapon to get, which makes it helpful for those that wish to explore the graveyard or Catacombs early.

Although it can deal a decent amount of damage, it is ultimately an inferior choice to both the Mace and the Reinforced Club, as they will outdamage the Morning Star with ease.

NotesEdit

One of the display sheets within the game states that the Morning Star deals Thrust damage. However, this is incorrect as it only inflicts Strike damage.
