|A blessed weapon, woven by the saints in Heaven and hated by the unholy. It is a favoured weapon of the Shining One's servants.|
This weapon falls into the Maces & Flails category. It is a one handed weapon.
Sacred scourges are demon whips which have been blessed through the Shining One's final ability; you can create your own this way, and you can occasionally find them on angels and daevas as well. They are generally considered to be the best one-handed weapons in the late game, due to their fast attack speed and excellent damage output against demons and the undead. They are also effective against normal monsters, although a demon whip with a solid attack brand is generally a superior choice against anything the holy wrath brand doesn't cover.
You can turn a sacred scourge into a demon whip by using Kikubaaqudgha's or Lugonu's final ability to replace its brand with pain or distortion, though this is rarely a good trade.
