The ancient mace is a weapon that can be acquired during the Another Slice of H.A.M. quest and requires completion of the quest to wield. If lost it can be retrieved from the goblin archaeologist Tegdak for 1,000 coins, north-east of the Dorgesh-Kaan marketplace. The generals in Goblin Village will also sell the mace to players who lose it during the quest for 1,000 coins. The ancient mace has stats in between those of an iron mace and a steel mace.
It has a special attack shared with its superior variant known as Favour of the War God that hits through Protect from Melee and drains the Prayer points of the opponent by 10% of the amount hit and will recharge the users prayer points by the same amount.
