Rolf's Companion ( ( )
Item Type Melee weapon
Artifact? Yes
Weight 50s
Danger Level N/A
Material Mithril

The dwarven rune axe "Rolf's Companion" is an artifact weapon in ADOM. Whilst wielded it grants a small toughness boost, as well as some defensive bonuses and fire resistance. It also returns when thrown. It is always generated blessed.

Its to-hit and damage are increased by 10 when it is wielded in the left hand and used with Rolf's Saviour.


The axe is an excellent weapon when used in conjunction with Rolf's Saviour. Unfortunately, getting the pair requires forfeiting both the ring of ice reward from the dwarven mystic and the fireproof blanket reward from Thrundarr. Unpaired, the axe has mediocre melee damage, but is a decent thrown weapon.

Getting the axe one of the requirements for the Rolf quest.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]
