It is affected by the Berserker necklace, receiving a 5% damage increase when the necklace is worn.
The Tzhaar-ket-om is advised for players who do not have 60 Attack or above. This weapon has lower damage than a Saradomin sword, Chaotic maul, or Torag's hammer, but its wielding requirements aren't as high. The TzHaar-ket-om has stats equal to that of a Dragon 2h sword, Dragon halberd and Dragon spear with the exception of being a crush weapon as opposed to slash or stab, making it useful for monsters with a crush weakness. Damage type aside, this makes it an attractive choice for players who have neither the money nor quest requirements for the Dragon two-handed weapons, especially when wielded while wearing a Berserker necklace, which boosts its already formidable damage output.
