The Great Mace is a great hammer in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Large mace wielded by the knights of the Cathedral of the Deep.
The extremely heavy strike attacks of this weapon are devastating and will break weaker shields with a single blow. Wielding such a weapon will require inhuman strength.
Skill: Perseverance
Anchor weapon in earth to temporarily boost poise. Damage reduced while activated.

Availability[]

Cathedral of the Deep

Consumed King's Garden

Characteristics[]

Although matched or slightly bested by some other great hammers in terms of damage, the Great Mace is lighter than its rivals (though middle of the road weight-wise otherwise), making it a choice pick for strength builds seeking efficiency.

Strangely, it has slightly stronger scaling on a Lightning-infusion than on a Crystal-infusion, though this only ever amounts to about 10 more AR for the former
