The gleaming dwarven rune axe is an artifact weapon awarded by Rolf upon completion of his quest. While wielded it grants +7 to DV and PV, +6 to Toughness, and resistance to fire. It returns when thrown.

Unlike Rolf's Companion, it does not gain any special benefits from being wielded in the left hand alongside its shield counterpart.

Desirability[edit source]

It is one of the best melee weapons in the game, with high damage and significant defensive boosts. It is also quite good as a returning missile.

Guaranteed/Common sources[edit source]
