Desirability

Undeadhunter[1] is a solidly enchanted weapon that deals superlative damage to undead opponents. While disruption is less versatile than holy wrath (as it has no impact against demons), it can be used by demonspawn, vampires, mummies, and ghouls, and its damage output against undead opponents is far superior to a weapon of holy wrath. If you find it and are already using two-handed maces, it's a good switch for places such as the Tomb or the Crypt, or when facing down bone dragons or liches. A mundane weapon with a more universally powerful brand is likely to be better for general use, though.

History

"Undeadhunter" used to be considered an evil weapon, and the good gods forbade the use of it. This aspect of the disruption brand was removed in version ??.

"Undeadhunter" was given a disruption brand in 0.9. Prior to that, it simply bore a holy wrath brand, and was unwieldable by evil characters as usual.
