World of Warcraft Weapons Guide: Maces – Part 2

This is already the second part of our article series focusing on Maces in World of Warcraft. This article will discuss some of the most durable maces in the game and some of the least powerful maces too. We are now talking about maces but we still have not discussed their general definition. Well, maces are blunt weapons. Maces are characterized by having a long rod with a heavy metal piece attached at the end. Some maces might have short edges that look fearful enough to intimidate opponents. Other maces might have points and protrustions that add power to a mace (specifically in slashing damage). Maces are not like swords or axes (they should belong to either one of those categories if they function the same, right?). These WoW weapons do not cut an enemy or slash it to death. Rather, maces are used by players to smash or crack their opponents. In patch 2.3, both Human and Dwarf Mace Specialization already affect the Expertise of all the maces available in the game. In the preceding article (read it first), we have already discussed some of the maces in World of Warcraft. In this article, we shall continue the discussion.


Anvilmar Hammer

Anvilmar Hammer is one of the coolest looking maces in the game as many players would like to put it. Simply put, the Anvilmar Hammer is not that scary looking but it gives off an aura of coolness. Plus, the power that it has is also quite powerful and so the weapon would prove not only cool and good for the eye but also prove that it is useful. This WoW mace should not be confused with the other item that is at a lower level than the Anvilmar Hammer that we are talking here. To continue with the name, Anvilmar Hammer has the same name where dwarves and gnomes begin in the game. Let us stop with those fun facts and continue on with the discussion of the Anvilmar Hammer. It is a WoW item that was added to the armory of World of Warcraft when patch 2.0.1 was released. The Anvilmar Hammer is a level 117 item that will bind to any level 69 character when equipped. The character that the Anvilmar Hammer is bound to is quite lucky as it brings a bunch of trait improvements such as the increase in agility by 23, increase in spirit by 23, increase in strength by 23, increase in stamina by 34, increase in intellect by 23, and increase in attack power by 46. Furthermore, the Anvilmar Hammer also has the ability to improve your character’s hit rating by 12, critical string rating by 12, and dodge rating by 12. The Anvilmar Hammer is a mace with a speed of 2.60 and can hurt targets for up to 63.6 damage per second or from 115 to 215 damage. It is sold for 7 Gold, 73 Silver, and 54 Bronze.

The Anvilmar Hammer is also similar to these 6 WoW items:

  • Driftwood Club (level 15 item, level 10 players)
  • Ruumbo’s Arm (level 46 item, level 44 players)
  • Waptor Thwapper (level 16 item, level 14 players)
  • Club (level 3 item)
  • Deadman Club (level 3 item)
  • Spiked Wooden Plank (level 11 item, level 6 players)


Apexis Crystal Mace

Players share mixed emotions and thoughts about this WoW mace. Some say that it is way too fast with low maximum damage infliction prowess to be used especially for an Enhance shaman. Some say that it is a very good weapon and that it is very useful for most of their fights. Each person is entitled to his views but we think that the Apexis Crystal Mace is a decent WoW weapon to be used by enhanced shamans. Plus, you do not need any reputation level to buy this weapon. It is naturally fast. Plus, it cannot be helped that it is also good looking (we like simple looking ones that look well crafted). The Apexis Crystal Mace was added to World of Warcraft via patch 2.1.0 as a level 115 item that will bind to level 70 players. When equipped, this one hand WoW mace will increase the character’s hit rating by 8 or 0.54%, critical strike rating by 20 or 0.91%, and attack power by 22. Its speed ticks at 1.80 which is fast and it can inflict 90 to 169 damage or 71.8 damage per second. Durability wise, the Apexis Crystal Mace also has quite a high rating though it is not as durable as some of the maces. It is sold for 8 Gold, 85 Silver, and 47 Bronze. The Apexis Crystal Mace was created by Apexis Crystal Infusion.

This WoW item is the same model as:

  • Battle-Mace of the High Priestess (level 115 item, level 70 players)
  • K’iru’s Presage (level 115 item, level 70 players)
  • Sky Breaker (level 115 item, level 68 players)
  • Death Star (level 3 item, level 3 players)
  • Fist of Argus (level 16 item, level 10 players)
  • Lesser of Sledgemace (level 102 item, level 64 players)
  • McWeaksauce’s Meat Tenderizer (level 10 item, level 5 players)


Arcane Forge Mace

The Arcane Forged Mace is quite a beautiful mace to look at but not a powerful one when it comes to its technical details. Added in patch 2.0.1, the Arcane Forge Mace is a level 4 WoW weapon that sells for 17 Gold. This one hand mace has a rated speed of 1.90 but can only do 1.7 damage per second or from 2 to 5 total health damage. Moreover, using this WoW item would seem like using nothing at all as it will easily break in battles (having very low durability rating).


Archon’s Gravel

Archon’s Gravel is a main hand mace that was added in patch 2.4.0. It is a very good looking bow with fancy graphics and with noticeable higher quality build. The Archon’s Gravel is a level 154 item that will bind to level 70 characters when picked up. When it binds, it will increase the stamina of the character by 46, stamina by 26 and spell power by a whopping 333 points. Aside from those, the Archon’s Gravel also has a Red Socket with a socket bonus of additional 2 points in Spirit. The speed of this WoW item is 1.80 with 54.0 damage per second power or from 68 to 127 damage. Its durability is also very high and it puts it a step below the most durable maces in World of Warcraft. It is sold for 14 Gold, 81 Silver, and 71 Bronze and was dropped by Lady Sacrolash and Grand Warlock Alythess at Sunwell Plateau.

Archon’s Gravel is a similar model to:

  • Brutal Gladiator’s Salvation (level 154 item, level 70 players)
  • Brutal Gladiator’s Swift Judgement (level 154 item, level 70 players)
