World of Warcraft Weapons Guide: Maces – Part 1

World of Warcraft is a globally popular game. It is a Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG) that has won the hearts of many game players today. Blizzard, the company that has developed the game, has added several punches and tweaks to the original World of Warcraft to make it more interesting. Each installment, called patch, brings an assortment of graphical improvements, game play changes, and a bunch of new weapons and weapon improvements. Moreover, World of Warcraft has already produced 4 iterations including WoW Cataclysm. Today, countless improvements from the original game can be seen. The most visible of them are the graphical improvements. Many players and game critics might debate on this issue but it cannot be denied that the graphics has enhanced greatly. Game critics say that the graphical or visual experience that World of Warcraft offers is not up to par with what the current competition has to offer. Some critics say that the changes in the game were the reason for the game’s declining state of popularity. Back in the day, World of Warcraft seemed to be the “game” to play if you want to experience what gaming has to offer. Today however, several games has surpassed the quality and experience that World of Warcraft used to offer. Still, it is a challenging game to play and will still satisfy the needs of users especially through its weapons.     World of Warcraft is known to have one of the largest armory and one of the games that has the biggest collections of weapons. The weapons are categorized into groups such as bows, crossbows, axes, swords, and maces. We have already discussed some of the mentioned weapon groups. Here, we shall discuss maces. So, let us start again.   Amani Punisher Let us start of this list with a WoW item that is no longer available to the players – the Amani Punisher. This WoW weapon is a refundable mace that was added in patch 2.3.0. It is bulky and looks scary but the power that it has is nowhere near powerful.  The Amani Punisher is a level 132 Main Hand mace that is very durable. In fact, it has one of the highest durability ratings in the whole game. It requires players to be at least in the 70th level when they pick it up so it binds. When it does, it will increase the character’s stamina by 46 and when equipped, the Amani Punisher will increase the hit rating by 20 and spell power by 272. Its speed is 1.60 and it can only inflict 47.8 damage per second or from 53 to 100 Damage. It was sold for 13 Gold, 24 Silver, and 6 Bronze. The Amani Punisher is the same model as Dark Blessing which is a level 138 item that requires level 70 players.   Ancestral HammerAncestral Hammer is something that looks very ordinary. This WoW mace was added to the game via patch 2.1.0 as a level 105 item that will bind to level 65 players. When equipped, the Ancestral Hammer will increase the character’s intellect by 20, spirit by 20, and stamina by 30. The Ancestral Mace has a speed of 1.70 and can do 27.9 damage per second or from 33 to 62 Damage. However, the Ancestral Hammer suffers from poor durability as its durability rating is very low compared to other maces in the game. It is sold for 6 Gold, 48 Silver, and 80 Bronze.

Ancient Bone MaceThe Acnient Bone Mace is quite a simple looking mace that was added to World of Warcraft in patch 2.0.1. This level 71 item cannot be disenchanted and has quite a poor durability rating compared to other maces. However, the poor durability of this mace should not hinder or put negative thoughts about your opinion of the Ancient Bone Mace. Why? This mace has been used on many occasions and countless fights in the battlefields. Its speed is rated to be at 1.80 and it can inflict 50 to 94 total health damage to its opponent or target.

Anubisath Warhammer This WoW mace is a product of patch 1.11.1. It is a very dreary and bleak looking weapon in the game but we all know not to judge a book by its cover. Many players think of the Anubisath Warhammer as an “ok” weapon but the truth is that it is quite useful. In fact, it is probably one of the best maces in the game that could be used by a Fury warrior or a Mace Rogue. The Anubisath Warhammer has a speed rating of 1.80 and it can do as much as 52.6 damage per second which is equivalent to 66 – 124 damage. However, it requires you to reach the 60th level first before it will bind when you pick it up. When it binds though, it will increase your stamina by 7 and when equipped, it will increase your character’s expertise rating by 9 or 3.84% and attack power by 32. The durability of the Anubisath Warhammer is one of its strongest points. Use the Anubisath Warhammer in any condition without worrying about destroying or even damaging the item. This one hand WoW item sells for 7 Gold, 97 Silver, and 16 Bronze. The Anubisath Warhammer was also dropped by 10 characters at the Temple of Ahn’Qiraji:
