Abyssal bludgeon detail.png

The abyssal bludgeon is a two-handed crush weapon created by having The Overseer combine three untradeable components — the bludgeon axon, bludgeon claw, and bludgeon spine. If the player already had the Overseer create one, they can use the three components on the book it left behind. Level 70 Attack and Strength are required to equip this weapon.

The components can be obtained from using the unsired, dropped by the Abyssal Sire, on the Font of Consumption. To complete a bludgeon, the mean number of Sire kills is 619.4 and the median number of kills is 552.

The bludgeon features a unique characteristic: all of its attack styles are aggressive, meaning it is only able to be used for Strength training. In addition, all of its attack styles use crush.

Special attack[edit | edit source]

A player performs the abyssal bludgeon's special attack, Penance.

The abyssal bludgeon has a special attack, Penance, which increases damage dealt by 0.5% for every prayer point that the wielder is missing, consuming 50% of the wielder's special attack energy.

Uses[edit | edit source]

The bludgeon has the same attack speed as the abyssal whip, and although it does not match the offensive bonuses of a whip combined with a dragon defender or avernic defender, the bludgeon has the second highest overall damage of any crush weapon after Inquisitor's mace, making it a good option against monsters weak to crush, such as gargoyles or kalphites.

The abyssal bludgeon is considered to be the fourth best weapon to train Strength with, behind the more expensive Ghrazi rapier, Blade of Saeldor, and Inquisitor's mace. It has superior damage per second of every other non-degradable weapon to feature an "aggressive" attack style, making it a common weapon choice for mid-wealth players. Saradomin's blessed sword does possess a slightly higher Strength bonus than the bludgeon but it is not cost-effective as it consumes Saradomin swords.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The process to create the weapon is similar to RuneScape 3's Spider leg; both items require the player to obtain three untradeable pieces in order to create the said item.
  • The bludgeon itself is significantly lighter than the three individual components, being 1.5 kg lighter.
