Version 0.25: This article is up to date for the latest stable release of Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup.
A glaive commissioned several years ago by a wealthy queen fearful for the safety of her vast treasury. No foe, the smith promised, could defeat a guard wielding such a weapon!

It was stolen a few months later, along with the rest of the queen's treasury; the guard, it transpired, had been caught napping. Still, it would serve more than adequately in hands of a waking user.

Desirability

The glaive of the Guard[1] has a decent enchantment level and provides you with a number of reasonably useful intrinsics. Even though electrocution is normally better on small, fast weapons, this item usually does more damage against non-resistant targets than a bardiche of flaming or freezing, especially when you have a few levels in Evocations for its evokable berserk. Not a bad weapon overall.

History
