Obsidian Pillar in Salt and Sanctuary is a Greathammer type weapon.


An enormous jet-black warhammer used by the Armor Guardians of the Castle of Storms. Few living creatures can withstand a blow from this veritable mountain of hardened iron and fewer still can so much as lift it, let alone carry it into battle. This early example was meant to be wielded by King Jaret's royal guards, but when the design proved too heavy for living soldiers it was modified for use by the King's towering golems instead. Its practical utility in the hands of an ordinary saltborn is questionable at best.


Notes and Tips:

  • At 50 STR this weapon will have an Attack of 171.2.
  • Two-handing a weapon increases Strength by 50% for damage scaling, meaning you only need 34 Strength to reach the 50 Strength soft cap when two-handing a weapon.
  • Because of the low scaling but high base damage, this weapon is really strong if obtained early and allows you to focus on other stats than strength untill you can get a better Greathammer.
  • This weapon has the highest base damage in the game, making it work exceptionally well with consumable weapon buffs such as the Blessed Page (weapon buffs add damage relative to the weapon's base damage).
  • Though with lower strength scaling, it still slightly outperforms the Warhammer at 50 strength. However, a full upgrade requires a Drowned Tome, which is extremely scarce, while the Warhammer only needs an A King's Order to fully upgrade.
