Scythe ( ( )
Item Type Melee weapon

Weight 80s
Danger Level 1
Material Iron

Scythes are one of the basic type of two-handed weapons in ADOM. They have base stats of (+1, 2d6+1) [-1, +0], though these do vary from time to time.

Scythes can be given to a farmer, in return you will receive a large ration.


They are useful in the early game, being relatively damaging. They will also train the useful Polearms weapon skill. Sadly, they are two-handed, precluding the use of a shield, and not quite damaging enough to make up for that.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

Scythes can be obtained in the same manner as all generic loot.
