Orcish battle axe ( ( )
Item Type Melee weapon
Artifact? No
Weight 120s
Danger Level 1
Material Iron

Orcish battle axes are one of the basic types of Weapon in ADOM. They have default stats of (-1, 1d7+3), though these do vary from time to time.


More powerful than regular battle axes by 1.5 average damage. In other words, not very remarkable.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

They can be obtained in the same manner as all generic loot, though it is uncommon to find them as such. On the other hand, any hill orc sergeant encountered may forcefully donate their orcish battle axe to the PC as a ranged attack.
