The Granite mace is a weapon that was released along with The Chosen Commander quest on March 17, 2009. It is a drop from Goblin statues, Ork statues, Ogre statues, and Ourg statues in Bandos' throne room. Players may use the granite mace to keep themselves safe from Bandos followers (but not from the bosses) in the God Wars Dungeon. Level 50 Strength and Attack are required to wield this weapon. The mace is held upright in the hand, similar to the holding position of the Dragon longsword.
Its special attack is the same as the Granite Maul's special attack. The special uses 50% of the special bar and allows the player to attack instantly. As with the Granite maul, players can have good timing and hit four times in quick succession (first normal hit, special, special, second normal hit). Its animation is similar to that of the Ancient Mace, where the player swings it down then overhead onto the enemy. If the special attack is selected before entering combat a warning message is displayed explaining that the special attack is instant and will be wasted if used on the first strike.
Originally, when first released the granite mace was at 40k in the Grand Exchange. This rose for the first week of its release but began to fall at the 80k mark, only rising to 200% of its original price.
The drop rate of the Granite mace seems to be surprisingly high, comparable somewhat to that of dragon boots. Thus it is not uncommon to receive multiple drops in a single trip. It is actually possible to receive a Granite mace from one of the three statues fought during the final battle in The Chosen Commander quest, although the chances are slim.
It is notable that players may remain for prolonged periods by way of healing over time techniques. It is a great advantage for higher level players to utilise such tactics as the majority of the statues within the Bandos' throne room do little damage. Some widely practised methods include the Saradomin godsword, Guthan's set, Bunyip familiars, and regen bracelets to name a few.
It is one of the three current weapons on RuneScape that can hit up to three times nearly instantaneously, the other two being a Granite Maul and Dragon Claws (It may hit up to three times in one hit if the player clicks quickly enough).
Players can hit up to four times in a row with this weapon due to the fact that after using the special attack the normal attack does not get delayed. If players get it at the correct timing they can do one normal hit then two special hits and one normal hit again.
