| A mace with a head covered in short spikes.
"Little did then his pomp of plumes bestead
-Robert Southey, "Madoc". 1805
This weapon falls into the 'Maces & Flails' category. It is a one handed weapon, and it is better for the strong.
With the removal of spiked flails, morningstars became the most powerful common one-handed mace. They were significantly buffed in the process, giving them the best damage of all the common one-handed weapons, although no special abilities such as cleaving or reaching. They are reasonable weapons to use until you find an eveningstar or a demon whip, but those planning to go for 2-handed maces will probably prefer either a dire flail or (for large characters) a giant club as an intermediate weapon.
Prior to 0.12, morning stars had only 10 base damage and -1 accuracy.
