The granite mace is a weapon that was released along with The Chosen Commander quest on March 17, 2009. This quest is NOT required to wield this weapon. 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 General Graardor or his minions) in the God Wars Dungeon. Level 55 Strength and Attack are required to wield this weapon. The mace is held upright in the hand, similar to the old holding position of the dragon longsword.
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 practiced methods include using a Saradomin godsword, Guthan's set, bunyip familiars, and the Rejuvenate ability to name a few.

- Before the Evolution of Combat, this weapon used to have a special attack.
- The granite mace gives a stab attack bonus, however it has only crush attacks.
- This mace looks similar to that wielded by the Dungeoneering boss Rammernaut.
- Due to the fairly fast drop rate from statues inside Bandos's Throne Room, the granite mace is often hard to sell due to the large amounts of players farming them.
- This mace resembles the one wielded by Lord Sauron in Lord of The Rings.
