Version 0.19: This article may not be up to date for the latest stable release of Crawl.
A beautiful mithril axe, probably lost by some dwarven hero.

Speed brand

With a base damage of roughly 11 (once you account for the speed brand) and a min delay of 4, "Arga" isn't capable of the raw brutality of bigger axes, but does attack marvelously fast and doesn't restrict you from using shields (making it one of the few reasons one would ever mix axes and shields). The magic resistance and strength boosts are minor, but welcome. Couple it with some solid slaying sources and this cleaving weapon can be extremely effective throughout the game.


Prior to 0.19, Arga had a +2 Strength bonus

Prior to 0.15, Arga had a +10, +6 enchantment bonus.

Prior to 0.14, Arga's offered a smaller magic resistance bonus.

Prior to 0.13, Arga was a war axe.
