The spiked maul of devastation "Foeslammer" is a two-handed artifact weapon that first appeared in ADOM v 1.2.0. The weapon deals huge damage, slays humanoids and plants, and provides resistance to death rays. It has a 25% chance to score critical hits in melee. It also spreads terror, like an unholy aura.

In its unidentified form, it appears as a maul.


Foeslammer is the most powerful humanoid slayer in the game and a very powerful weapon overall, particularly with its increased chance to land critical hits. Whilst it is still nowhere near as powerful as the axe of the minotaur emperor, it at least is easier to carry.

As for the spread of terror, depending on how the battle is faring the ability to occasionally make foes flee ranges from being annoying to perhaps being a life saver. If the PC accidentally angers a shopkeeper with it, at least the weapon makes the resulting brawl easier to win

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

It can only be generated as a crowning gift for Chaos Knights.
