Final Fantasy XI

The Mjollnir is the Relic Weapon of the White Mage Job, available only to Level 75 White Mages after having completed an immensely lengthy and expensive quest (often taking months of time, hundreds of millions of gil, and the full assistance of an entire Linkshell community to obtain difficult Dynamis drop items). The inception of the Mjollnir by the developers around the launch of the Zilart Expansion was essentially to validate the White Mage Job class as a front-line fighter. Though with optimal gear and clever strategy a White Mage with this weapon is formidable, it is still, however, outclassed by most other Jobs designed specifically for combat with mediocre gear builds, and is therefore viewed as a trophy item for those who obtain it. It is also criticized for not amplifying any magical aspects of the White Mage Job (as many other Relic Weapons build on their respective Jobs' greater aspects) but instead attempts to make up for the Job's poor offensive combative skills. Notably, however, this Club is the most powerful one-handed weapon (based solely on the Damage statistic) in the entirety of Final Fantasy XI, including Swords, Axes, Katana, and Daggers.

Mjolnir is the strongest hammer in the game, providing 55 Attack, 10 Magic, and 15 Resistance, as well as being Lightning-elemental.

Etymology

The "Mjöllnir" is Thor's hammer in Norse mythology. Thor is commonly known as the god of thunder, and the Mjöllnir was said to be mighty enough to level mountains. Though the weapon is usually known as a hammer, it has also been reported as an axe or club.
