|A terrible weapon, woven in the depths of the inferno.|
This weapon falls into the Maces & Flails category. It is a one handed weapon, and it is best used by the dexterous.
Contrary to their flavor descriptor, Demon whips are the best all-purpose one-handed maces, and are generally considered to be the best one-handed weapons in the game. This is due to their combination of a superb min delay (5, so you will consistently get two attacks per turn) and good damage output. They are often found on the hell knights in the later Dungeon and the Vestibule of Hell, often with good enchantment levels and brands. Being fast weapons, they are best used with brands that do flat damage, such as electrocution, pain, or distortion.
Demon whips can be blessed by the Shining One to turn them into sacred scourges. These have a base damage of 12 and a holy wrath brand, and are superior to demon whips when facing demons or the undead.
