World of Warcraft Weapons Guide: Maces – Part 3

We are now on the third part of this article series entirely dedicated to discussing maces – one of the weapon categories in the world’s most popular game. World of Warcraft has long since been noticed for its unique weapons that are reminiscent of ordinary real life weapons. The armory of the game (of course it should not be taken too literally) is filled with powerful weapons as well as weaker ones. In this same light, maces present a unique method of helping the character win a game. Maces come in various sizes but not in form as they all have long rods and a heavy metal (or any heavy material) at the end. Moreover, maces can smash the enemy to a fatal point. Some maces even have the ability to crack the shields of characters. WoW maces are no doubt powerful and are very useful for characters who want to succeed in regular fights. Here, we shall continue discussing this weapon category in World of Warcraft.



Ardent Custodian

The Ardent Custodian is a very good and handy weapon for any player that goes tanking. When using the Ardent Custodian, your offhand slot is left open so you can equip more armor to your character. The Ardent Custodian was added to the game in patch 1.11.1 and has been used by many players since then in tanking (not so much in leveling up). It is a one hand weapon with item level 43 and a player level requirement of 38. It binds when equipped and increase the dodge rating of the character by 7 or 0.88%. Its speed is rated at 2.10 and it can inflict 32.9 damage per second equivalent to 48 – 90 damage. Its durability rating is also very high which adds to its cool points. The Ardent Custodian is a WoW weapon that is coveted by many but is rarely being dropped. You can buy this WoW item for 2 Gold, 15 Silver, and 33 Bronze. It was dropped by 90 characters which includes the following:

Ascendant’s Scepter

The Ascendant’s Scepter is something that looks like it is made out of ebony. It looks regal and yet it exudes power. This beautiful WoW mace was added to the game armory via patch 2.1.0 and has since been used by players in medium difficulty battles. This level 120 item will bind to level 70 players when equipped. It will enhance the character’s intellect by 24, spirit by 24, and stamina by 36. It can inflict damage from 38 to 72 or 32.6 damage per second with its speed of 1.70. It is naturally fast and it is fascinating but its durability is not. It has a very low durability rating and it is disappointing for such a capable weapon.

Bashguuder is a one hand World of Warcraft mace that looks scary and heavy. This level 60 item will bind to level 55 characters as soon as it is picked up. The Bashguuder will automatically increase the character’s strength by 10 when it binds. Furthermore, the Bashguuder can puncture the armor of the target that gives 200 damage for up to 3 times. The speed of the Bashguuder is 2.60 and it can inflict 39.6 damage per second or from 71 to 134 total damage. Drability wise, the Bashguuder has quite a high durability but it is still not at par at some of the best maces in World of Warcraft. It is sold for 5 Gold, 19 Silver, and 45 Bronze and was dropped by Ghok Bashguard.

  • Bludstone Hamer (level 61 item, level 56 players)
