Scourge ( ( )
Item Type Melee weapon
Artifact? No
Weight 25s
Danger Level 1
Material Leather

Scourges are one of the basic types of Weapon in ADOM. They have default stats of (-4, 1d3+3), though these do vary from time to time.


They are not very useful. Being a weapon of the whips class, they use Dexterity for damage, so might be valuable to Dexterity-based characters early in the game, especially since they deal 3 points of damage more than a whip.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

They can be obtained in the same manner as all generic loot. They are a frequent drop of Balors.
