A club fitted with a spiked head. The spikes of this blunt weapon cause bleeding. Normally wielded by clerics, but clearly intended to draw blood. 



Acquired From

  • Treasure in Majula. Along the cliffs leading to the tutorial zone there's a gap in the rocks to jump down to.
  • Treasure in: Huntsman's Copse inside one of the circular rooms after the second bonfire, the same room that has the lever to move down the bridge to the Undead Purgatory
  • Unlimited can be bought from Blue Sentinel Targray for 1600 souls. Please note that you must be in the covenant to use him as a vendor.




Hints and Tips:

  • Upgraded with regular Titanite. Cannot be infused with Bleed.
  • The first hammer you can pick up for free in the game. Useful for non-cleric classes who don't want to buy a Mace as it works well against Heide's Tower knights.
