Statius's warhammer: Misc



Up to date as of February 07, 2010

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

Statius's warhammer is part of Statius's Equipment and is obtained by killing a player on a PvP world. This weapon has a special attack called Smash, which deals up to 25% more damage and decreases the opponent's Defence by 30%. When activated, the player raises the hammer and smashes it downward on the opponent. It drains 35% of the special attack bar and can be used on players and monsters. The special-attack sounds similar to the Dragon Mace's special attack "Shatter".

This weapon came out with the release of PvP worlds. The normal (i.e. uncorrupt) version requires 78 Attack and lasts for 1 hour of combat, while the corrupt version requires 20 Attack and lasts for 15 minutes equipped.

Contrary to popular belief, this item does NOT degrade while using NON-COMBAT magic.

Statius's warhammer is often considered the "best" warhammer in RuneScape, and one of the strongest one-handed weapons in Runescape, based on its statistics. Rather, it would be more specific to point it out as the most "powerful" warhammer, though not necessarily the "best". (This is a factor by technicality, as one could consider the comparable Torag's hammers to be the "best" warhammer[s] (if they are in fact seen as warhammers) in the game, based on the fact that they do not disintegrate after a period of time and, when they become damaged, can be repaired.)

  • The special attack is very useful for killing creatures with high defence, such as the Corporeal beast, and has been used in the vast majority of its known solo kills. Where it has not been used a Darklight sword replaced it.
