Additional Information

A feared weapon in the right hands, this maul's ability to shatter the defenses of its opponents should not be underestimated.


  • Bashes don't pierce evasion.

  • When obtaining multiple items with the bash ability, only the first bought one's bash works while the others are disabled.

What is the damage type on basher again? Also, you can bash through BKB, but does the damage go through if it's magical?

120 + Physical attack. Good question :D

Does the proc always do flat 120 damage or does it deal + 120 damage to the physical attack?
