A detailed Ancient mace.

The Ancient mace is a weapon that can be acquired during the Another Slice of H.A.M. quest. If lost it can be retrieved from the Goblin archaeologist Tegdak for 1,000 coins, northeast of the Dorgesh-Kaan marketplace. The generals in Goblin Village will also sell the mace, for 1,000 coins, to players who lose it during the quest. The ancient mace is a bit less powerful than a mithril one.

This mace has a special attack that drains the opponent's prayer a number of points equal to damage dealt. The user also gains an equal number of prayer points. This special attack uses 100% of the special attack energy bar. It is possible to achieve a number of prayer points beyond the prayer level with this, although there is a limit: Players can only have X + Y points, where X is the player's Prayer level and Y is their maximum hit. If the special is used when prayer points are maxed out, no additional points will be gained.

  • A player who has 72/70 prayer points and hits 9 with the mace special will have their prayer boosted to 79/70, instead of 81/70.
  • Players who attack a Tz-Kih with the mace special in the TzHaar Fight Caves will find that the prayer addition comes before the prayer drain.

This mace is extremely useful in places where a large amount of prayer is needed, but an altar is inaccessible, such as the Tzhaar Fight Caves, or spiritual mage as it is virtually an infinite source of prayer points. Players who wish to access the Bandos camp of the God Wars Dungeon may also want to purchase this mace, as it prevents the followers of Bandos from being aggressive towards you.

Also, this mace can be useful for the Fist of Guthix mini-game because of its prayer draining powers.

As the maximum Hit with the Ancient Mace is 35 (99 Strength, PvP Gear and Extreme strength), a player can have 134 Prayer points at level 99.

  • The special attack of the Ancient mace resembles the special attack of the Barrelchest anchor. In fact, the animation is exactly the same. For a split second after special attack has been performed, the player will hold the mace like the Anchor.
  • The Ancient mace can be used to be protected against the bandos followers in the God wars dungeon.
  • When fighting monsters that can't be damaged by conventional means (i.e. kurasks, turoth, etc), the special attack will hit 0 but still add what you would have hit to your prayer.
