The Mace of Contrition being used against Korax

The Mace of Contrition is a weapon from Hexen, the starting weapon of the Cleric. It is a short, spiked mace which does little damage and does not require mana. However it has quite a long reach for a melee weapon, so it is possible for a player to strike enemies without being in range of their target's melee attacks.

The manual states that in most cases, several hits are required to cause contrition in an enemy.


  • "Contrition" is defined as regret and penitence for sins, and with the Cleric being a member of Cronos's Church, the weapon's implications in its use against demons are obvious.
