Magic axe

The magic axe has quite a long history in Britannia. Developed shortly before the arrival of the Shadowlords, a magic axe is thrown. Whether it hits or misses the enemy, it returns to the user like a boomerang. It is one of the best weapons to use in distance combat. Small and light of weight, magic axes can be used by even the weakest warrior. They are, however, very expensive to purchase.

According to Vetron's Guide to Weapons and Armour, the magic axe has an effectiveness rating of 8, and it is noted that it can be thrown.

History Edit

They first appeared in Ultima IV, where they were sold in Minoc. They were slightly less expensive than the magic bow, yet slightly more powerful. Only paladin and tinker characters could equip the magic axe.

In Ultima V, these axes were sold in Yew. They were some of the strongest weapons available, but very expensive.

They could be found in Ultima VI as loot.

Magic axes were quite common by Ultima VII. The best source to find two of them were the pair of skeleton guards in Horance's tower in Skara Brae. However, the axes had lost some of their potency by then.

Trivia Edit

  • A magic axe on Pagan, which can't be thrown, is called the Deceiver.
