The War Hammer of Ares is a weapon of Ares required Level 9 to unlock in Multiplayer.


A powerful ranged hammer.

–Ingame description

This is a metallic hammer with an image of Ares himself in his "beast" form on it, showing his monstrous spider-like legs.

Although it can be considered a basic weapon, this hammer can be very powerful and useful in battle. Its attacks consist of fiery ground slams that can either knock opponents away or in the air, which makes it good to knock them out of an arena, for example. In a combat against a single enemy player, it can be deadly and enough to overpower the foe within seconds, depending on the skills of its user. As a tool of brutal devastation, hundreds of warriors will fall before the crushing wrath of the War Hammer of Ares.
