Maces of disruption are a type of special one-handed weapons in ADOM. Maces of disruption are an example of a 'naturally suffixed' weapon and are one of the few non-artifact weapons with slaying powers.

Maces of disruption have typical stats of (+2, 2d4+2), although variations of this may often occur. They also slay undead.


Maces of disruption are very rare and extremely situational. Their base damage output is comparable with basic flails and is easily surpassed against non-undead opponents with most weapons. Even against undead monsters high Strength, weapon skill and items boosting raw damage (rings of slaying, rings of damage etc.) are necessary to get the most effect of guaranteed critical hits.
