Mace is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.

Iron hammer designed for use in battle. A common weapon for clerics.

This bladeless strike weapon is effective against most foes, and can break the guard of a shield.

Skill: Perserverance
Assume an unfaltering stance of prayer to temporarily boost poise. Damage reduced while activated.

Notes and Tips:

  • Can be Infused and Buffed.
  • Reinforced with Titanite.
  • This weapon has the Mace moveset. Because of this, doing three (two-handed) R1s can connect on a PvP opponent, with the third R1 acting as an easy roll-catch.

      On what str does it become better than raw, does it even? Im using raw rn, and i has A in str, but at 24 str raw is still better

        Imo best weapon to kill dancer, decently fast with good verticality to smash her head. It's the only weapon I could actually get a riposte off on her

          I've been doing a quality build and I'm having trouble with Gael, I'm using a thrall axe but I found out that Gael is weak to strike damage so I've been wondering if it was better to switch to the mace or stick to the thrall axe for the quickstep

            Wow! An iron Stick! Only losers and casuls would use this weapon! Real pros like me use the Broken Straight Sword! Gid gud casul

              What a useless trash weapon. Every time you dumb casuals use the weapon art it's literally just a free hit for me with my pkcs LOL! You can't even do anything fast enough to counter me after I get my free hit in with your dumb useless slow weapon LMFAO! Imagine being a braindead strength tard that can only mindlessly face tank things LOOOOOL! Learn to use a real weapon that actually takes skill like the PKCS. I doubt any of you strength tards even have the IQ needed to figure out how to do anything other than mindlessly face tank though LMFAO! So trash!

                The lumpy stick which reminds skeletons how they’re supposed to act (or not act, rather) after they’ve lost all their living fleshy bits.

                Works even better if it’s a blessed lumpy stick. Then they only need reminding once.

                  I fully understand why this weapon is the favorite of all clerics. Nothing convinces the wicked better than a bold blow to the head.

                  • Anonymous

                    Made this bonk dark for my pyromancer. I am never going back. You will pry this precious stick from my cold, dead hands.

                      With a base level Cleric, the weapon should ONLY be used 2-handed. The 1-handed attack is so slow and weak that it is nearly like wielding a weapon you do not have the requirements for. Night and day different when 2-handing.

                      • Anonymous

                        pros:

                        1. available very early, either as starting weapon or buy from Greirat in High Wall

                        2. Good balance of damage - poise health - poise damage.

                        3. Insane strike damage for a 5 unit weapon - 500 pure strike AR at 66 str heavy infused

                        4. Insane damage raw infused, can go until Pontiff with just 8 str and raw infusion

                        5. Wa is very strong. Carefull though to not overuse in PVP cause it s kinda eazy to parry

                        6. Can be buffed and infused and works well with all infusion, specifically chaos and dark. Lightning is a decent option as well

                        7. 2h mode has good moveset, insane phantom range allowing easy roll catching and is pretty fast for a weapon with Hyper Armor

                        cons:

                        1. 1h move set is below average, slow horizontal swings

                        2. both r2s are below average, being predictable (PvP)

                        3. a poor choice for bosses cause its damage/swing speed ratio is inferior to both fast weapons like SS or heavy weapons like GS or UGS/GH/GA

                        Others:

                        A weapon that excels in low level pvp and all around area pve. It s good in 90 to meta level pvp as well. For bosses I recommend the mace user to wield another weapon like broadsword or clubs, to gain faster swings. Str build is ideal for a mace user but pyromancy/miracles are also good option with a melee option at hand. Weapon is pretty strong with both elemental infusion and heavy infusion so it can carry the ashen one in ng 7 without any issues.
                        Wa will make most pve minobosses or tough enemies a breeze and it s also very usefull in pvp, when used right. Never do Wa and spam r1 with a good player cause you will basiclly beg for a parry and hornet ring riposte :)

                        Enjoy the mace!

                          A cleric's best friend. This thing can carry you to the end, and on a faith build with 60 FTH you can get a nice 502 ar, meaning it competes with greatswords and ultras in terms of damage.

                          • Anonymous

                            Great weapon if you are mostly one handing its not as short as a club but it takes more stamina than a club. it can know shields off and the weapon art is good. you dont really need to 2H for the moveset the simple 1H is enough.
                            perfect for a cleric build early on since lightning spear doesnt go through shields so you can knock the shield off without having to 2H your weapon.

                                Gains 502 AR when lightning infused at 60 Faith and 12 Strength. Basically, this weapon can retain its usefulness for a faith user throughout the entirety of the game.

                                  A free poise and perserverance for any build. Just a simple and fun thing. Just be wary of parries and backstabs.

                                        Can someone explain to me why this thing's hitbox for what I'm assuming is the heavy attack so broken? I keep getting hit literally an entire roll away and still take the damage no matter when I roll or how far away I am. Not only is this thing easy mode for PvE, but for PvP as well, because you have the roll-catching ability of a freaking greatsword for absolutely no reason. It's happened 3x in a row now while invading the Crucifixion Woods. I wouldn't care as much if people didn't keep taunting like there was skill involved, considering anyone can get free kills if they could hit people that far away for free.

                                          Honestly, if you have this weapon, at least 39 vigor and good poise armor, then you've enabled easy mode for melee players. There's nothing wrong with that, but this playstyle makes the game far easier.

                                            Sooooo, I looked and it seems that a heavy mace is inferior to the heavy morning star at +10, I just want to know which to go for, a heavy mace (212 A in strength) or a heavy morning star (225 A in strength) I just think there might be some variation in things like the WA duration or strength

                                                Is the mace the best Raw weapon in the game? In terms of AR. My mate is playing as a knight and has only invested points in health and endurance and I was watching him destroy people at SL35 with a raw mace plus 4. I mean he completely dominated in pvp. So I ask the question.

                                                  Browsing for a strike alternative to the chaos infused LKS for my pyro, I found that this weapon is really super solid as infused it has a B strength scaling alongside B for both FTH and INT, meaning it has a higher damage potential for a pyromancer willing to dump some points in STR once he's softcapped at the former, which you probably will anyway if you are rocking something like the Shield of Want, not to mention Strike is the better damage type and swing speed is still very competent. Bit heavier, but I only had to downscale my helmet a tad.

                                                    I highly recommend taking this along with a blessed infusion when visiting the catacombs. Best skeleton bane without the need for high strength.

                                                      Almost any default class can run this with minimal costs, and to maximal effect. Except plebians like sorcerers, who should really just switch classes.

                                                          Mace is one of the best all around weapons in all three dark souls. Good speed, good damage, good animation, easy to use, stagger, a-scalings, buffable , easy to obtain early on. It just never lets you down. I finished the game as a cleric and i don't remember ever taking it off my right hand.

                                                            I prefer this over the long sword for a low level pyro that has to watch every stat point. Hits harder too.

                                                              Make this +10, raw, on your cleric characters. Buff with Lightning Blade, Darkmoon Blade or Dark Blade. At 60 faith it adds an incredible amount of additional damage. You won't need anything else, since so many enemies are weak to strike/lightning or just lightning. Consider getting Carthus Flame Arc if you really need fire damage.

                                                                two-hand this bad boy to deal punishing three hit combos. the third light attack roll-catches like there's no tomorrow

                                                                • This is truly one of the "secret" best weapons in the game. It's almost absurd how it went under the radar all these months.

                                                                  Probably cause its not flashy. Like, at all; but it doesn't have to be. Its strong, fast, good range, strike damage, buffable, and it has perserverance which at this point is arguably the best WA in the game. It has EVERYTHING you need.

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                          i wanted to try a different weapon on my strength toon and bought this one. put a slab on it, infused heavy and went to try it on arena. im in awe of how stupidly good this dull looking weapon is. i havent lost a single duel yet, it completely destroys r1 spammers and shield users and you can trade with ultra weapons. i just love this weapon.

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                            Most effective weapon I could find to infuse bless on for catacombs. I needed something fast/decent reach (some good combination of the two, as usually you won't find the best of both on one weapon), that didn't lose too much damage from the infusion (for example, astora great sword infuses much better with elementals or blessing than a great club will, despite the great club having better pure phys infusion), and dealt strike damage.

                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                              This thing is just awesome. I use a Lightning Mace in combination with a Blessed Longsword (for speed and healing, also great in PvE), and I can pretty much take on any build. I actually love it when my opponent is using a shield because I have this in my arsenal since 2 handing this mace will stagger most shields in 2 - 3 hits. It's also very easy to roll catch people on the 3rd hit while 2h. Beast of a weapon.

                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                Can anyone please give me your thoughts on using the Mace with a Pyromancer build? Assume I'm using a standard 40/40 Pyromancer build with only few points put into strength and dexterity. In addition, it would obviously be infused with Dark or Chaos. I'm just wondering if I could abuse the Mace's weapon art to dish out some Black Flame with the added benefit of poise. Thanks.

The poise WA basically guarantees you to get a 500 damage combo if you can get a slight read on your opponent and even if you misread them there's virtually no punishment for it. 10/10

It easts stamina and some nemies will hit you before you can stunlock them. You're much better off with a longsword imho, even strike damage isn't what it used to be and with all the strike damage greatswords around I don't seewhy you would bother with maces in this game. It's a bit of a shame really.
