Characteristics[]

One of the most absurd weapons in the game, Morne's Great Hammer has the potential to be terribly destructive in the right hands.

The most striking characteristic of this weapon is its extremely high wielding requirements, demanding 50 Strength and 30 Faith to even wield, both stats which scale towards its physical damage output. Though this Strength requirement is matched by that of its matching greatshield, it can be somewhat circumvented by reaching only 34 Strength and two-handing the weapon. As well, it is one of the heaviest weapons in the game, matching weight with Smough's Great Hammer and only being beaten by the Fume Ultra Greatsword and Ledo's Great Hammer, which forces the wielder to both level Vitality and equip one of the variants of Havel's Ring. As such, this weapon essentially demands that the player allocate levels around the weapon, rather than the inverse.

However, should these wielding requirements be met, Morne's Great Hammer becomes a force of destruction unlike almost anything else. With an intolerably high Attack Rating, it will lay waste to almost any target that it hits, moreso since it deals Strike damage, which is one of the least-resisted damage types in the game. As well, like Smough's Great Hammer and Ledo's Great Hammer, it has the Poise health of an Ultra Great Hammer, higher than that of a standard Great Hammer, which grants it extremely powerful Hyper Armor. Added to all of this is its skill, an enhanced variant of Perseverance which further augments its ability to put out damage.
