Extra Info:

Flails are interesting weapons due to the fact that they do not give any attack advantage, but rather add a +3 to Critical Strike Chance. This is on par with the Grim Reaper's Scythe as far as critical strike chances go, without the drawback of being cursed with each failed attack. However, at the point in the game when this weapon is viable, many weapons with a standard high base attack increase could be better alternatives.
Uses for the flail include:

  • Boss Battles, when crit chance is stacked with other bonuses

  • If the player is a low-attack class (i.e. Elf), and the attack bonus given by normal weapons is not worth it.
