+4 holy axe (modified broad axe: +1 base damage)

Holy brand
Allows flight
See Invisible
Gets bonus enchantment as scarier enemies come into view


For every "tough" enemy in line of sight, the labrys gains +3 enchantment. For every "nasty" enemy, it gains +9 enchantment. Maximum enchantment is +16.

See the Threat article for how "tough" and "nasty" monsters are determined.


At the least, the Consecrated labyrys is better than +4 broad axe of holy wrath, which is already a great weapon for the extended game. The labrys will frequently raise its enchantment, making it even stronger. Any reasonably threatening monster will count as "tough", so reaching a +13 or +16 enchantment is quite easy.

During the 3-rune portion of the game, it can still be a great weapon. While its brand will rarely be effective, it'll often have a high enchantment.
