The Sanctum Mace is a great hammer in Dark Souls II: Crown of the Sunken King.

In-Game Description

A mace wielded by sanctum soldiers.
This mace was corrupted by poison when Sinh, the sleeping 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.

NotesEdit

  • When swung, the Sanctum Mace inflicts a large amount of poison build-up on its wielder. A combination of high poison resistance and spacing out attacks can be useful to mitigate it.
  • Moveset consists of standard great hammer attacks, but the two-handed light attack is a lance-like thrust.
  • When performing the two-handed running attack with the Moon Butterfly Set and Crest of the Rat equipped, it can poison players instantly.
