A silver-bladed lajatang, once bestowed upon a favoured worshipper of Zin. It became the most prized weapon of the many priests of Zin. After their order was destroyed, it fell into disuse and vanished from history.

Mutation resistance (66% chance to resist hostile mutations.)


The lajatang of Order[1] is a good weapon, with high damage output in general, and outstanding damage against silver-vulnerable enemies. Just as impressive is the fact that it is one of a few sources of mutation resistance (ironically, this also makes it much less desirable for actual worshipers of Zin).

This weapon largely follows the same benefits and pitfalls as a regular lajatang; it offers great damage for low skill, in exchange for requiring 2 hands and comparatively low late-game damage. Hybrids might like this weapon, but a heavy melee brute may prefer another weapon. Regardless, it can be used as a swapout against monsters who cast Malmutate (all of which are chaotic, and will thus suffer heavy damage from the silver brand).


  • Prior to 0.24, the silver brand offered no damage bonus to monsters not vulnerable to silver.
  • Prior to 0.18, rMut provided a 90% chance to resist hostile mutations. But there were amulets of resist mutation in the game, which also provided this resistance, so having rMut was less special.
  • The lajatang of Order was added in 0.14.
