The maple blackjack(d) is a weapon mainly used to lure/knockout NPCs. It is the best defensive blackjack available. 30 Defence and 30 Thieving are required to equip and use it. To obtain one, the player must have completed the blackjack section of the Rogue Trader miniquest. When the blackjacks are set to 'defensive', they can be purchased from Ali Morrisane.
There are three NPCs that can be lured/knocked out with this blackjack: Villagers, Bandits and Menaphite Thugs, all located in Pollnivneach. The Thieving levels required to lure these are 30, 45, and 65 respectively. When fighting with a blackjack there is a slight chance to stun the opponent.
First, the player uses the Lure function of the blackjack to lead the unsuspecting NPC to a remote place, and can then knock out the NPC. Once unconscious, the player can pickpocket the victim.
