+6 shillelagh (8 damage, +3 accuracy, 130% speed)
Causes explosion (somewhat like a smaller, weaker Shatter) on attack

Desirability

The shillelagh "Devastator" is basically a well-enchanted club with upgraded base stats and unavoidable splash damage to everything adjacent to your target when used in melee.

Despite everything blowing up in your face constantly, it actually doesn't do much in the way of backlash damage, particularly if you're playing a high-AC character. It's especially useful for quickly clearing out swarms of fragile enemies like bats or killer bees, but it deals with single enemies in the early- and mid-game just fine. It does make plenty of noise, though, so expect to deal with swarms of enemies considerably more often.

History

Prior to 0.15, Devastator had a +4, +8 enchantment level.

Devastator was added in 0.10.
