Shattered Flail is a rare Mace with a +2 Enchantment that heals the wielder when they hit an enemy - at the cost of potentially going mad when they stop attacking.

Description Icon.png
A bundle of bones and blood - and a soul-piercing demonic presence - is all that remains of the Flind's flail. It would make a decent mace with a particularly nasty bite.



The holder of this item gains:

  • Yeenoghu's Gift: Hitting an enemy with this weapon heals the wielder for 1d6Hit Points - but they can go Mad if they don't continue hitting an enemy each turn.
    • Mad: Hostile to everyone in the vicinity.
      • Duration: 1 turn
  • See Notes and Trivia for mechanical explanation and other notes.

Notes and Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • After hitting a creature with the Shattered Flail, the wielder gains Yeenoghu's Gift for 6 turns. For the duration, they must succeed a DC 12  Wisdom Save at the end of any turn on which they do not hit an enemy, or they will go Mad for 1 turn.
    • As of Hotfix 3 (2023-08-16), the Saving Throw rolls made by the wielder of this weapon do not appear in the combat log, but they are in fact being rolled at the end of each turn the wielder does not damage an enemy.
    • The duration of Yeenoghu's Gift is not refreshed by hitting enemies again; it only lasts the base 6 turns, after which it can be re-applied.
  • While Mad, the wielder is uncontrollably hostile to all nearby creatures, including allies, and will use any and all tools at their disposal to inflict harm. This could include using powerful Ammunition or Consumables from their inventory, casting high level Spells, or shoving allies to their deaths.
