Version 0.19: This article may not be up to date for the latest stable release of Crawl.
A purple glaive that was created by a mad god, and carries a curse which transforms anyone wielding it into a prune. Fortunately, the curse works very slowly, and one can use it briefly with no consequences worse than slightly purple skin and a few wrinkles.

+12 glaive

Vorpal brand


The glaive of prune is a straightforward enough artefact: a +12 glaive of chopping. The "prune curse" on this weapon has no actual in-game effect, other than making Zin hate it. Most characters who happen to use polearms can benefit from it in the early- and mid-game; even though glaives aren't the most impressive weapons, and you'll eventually be better off with a well-branded bardiche or demon trident, it's got significant enchantment bonuses and shouldn't be skipped over if you haven't gotten a proper end-game weapon yet.


Prior to 0.15, the glaive of Prune had a +4,+12 enchantment.
