A blessed weapon, woven by the saints in Heaven and hated by the unholy. It is a favoured weapon of the Shining One's servants.
This weapon falls into the Maces & Flails category. It is a one handed weapon.

Sacred scourges are a blessed weapon, slightly stronger than the demon whip it was formed from. Like eudemon blades and trishulas, it always has the holy wrath brand.

You can create a sacred scourge through the Shining One's 6* ability, or find them on angels and daevas. You can turn a sacred scourge back into a demon whip by using Kikubaaqudgha's or Lugonu's final ability to replace its brand with pain or distortion, though this is rarely a good trade.


The strongest one-handed mace, at least in raw stats. The forced holy wrath brand makes it strong against evil opponents, though a branded demon whip (or eveningstar) is better against non-evil opponents.
