HistoryEdit

In early March 2007, a glitch that allowed infinite iterations of its special attack was discovered and abused by many players. The glitch was later fixed by Jagex, and the abusers received bans of varying lengths.

When the granite maul was first released, players were allowed to "pre-set" a special attack by clicking on the special bar as an NPC died or by other similar fashion, then recharging the special bar. Using this "glitch", players would then be able to use two consecutive special attacks on top of one another, allowing potentially 4 devastating hits instead of the now 3. At that time, the granite maul was one of the most, if not the most, popular form of "3-hitting" enemies in the Wilderness (as opposed to, say, a dragon dagger). Maul pures were thus born, with 50 Attack, 1 Defence, and extremely high Strength. However, this glitch was patched soon thereafter, leaving many players disappointed.

This was a popular scamming item because it resembles the rock hammer; players would initially present an often noted granite maul in the trade window, and quickly switch it to a rock hammer (noted if appropriate) and hope the receiver did not notice the change.

When PvP worlds were released, the price of the granite maul went up from around 50,000 to 150,000 coins. Again, when Bounty Worlds were released, the granite maul went up again, to 250,000 coins.

TriviaEdit

  • Before the Evolution of Combat update, the gravite 2h sword used to give higher bonuses in comparison to the granite maul, despite the fact that the gravite 2h sword required 5 less Attack to wield. The two weapons are now on par with each other bonus-wise, as well as sharing the same Attack requirement.
  • It is the only weapon with slow attack speed.
  • The granite maul's infinite special attack glitch reappeared after the Legacy Mode beta was released. It was patched shortly afterwards.
