The Tzhaar-ket-om, also known as the obsidian maul, requires a Strength level of 60 to wield. It is a two-handed weapon. It is affected by the Berserker necklace, receiving a 20% damage increase when the necklace is worn. It is also affected by the Obsidian armour (helmet, platebody and platelegs) which will increase the melee attack and melee strength by 10%. These damage bonuses do stack with each other.
The maul is used commonly by Strength pures in player-killing because the only requirement is a Strength level of 60, which makes it possible to have a low Combat level while being able to deal high amounts of damage. However, one major drawback of this weapon is its poor attack speed.
The maximum hit in standard PvP combat with the maul is 63. This can be done by wearing an Obsidian helmet, platebody, platelegs, Berserker necklace, Berserker ring (i), Infernal cape, Barrows gloves, and Primordial/Dragon boots, and using a Super combat potion while having Piety active.
Players can attach a Tzhaar-ket-om ornament kit, obtained from hard Treasure Trails, to create a Tzhaar-ket-om (t). This is only cosmetic, and does not affect the maul's stat bonuses. It can be dismantled, returning the maul and ornament kit.
