This is the official discussion thread for the blog article Forging the Mace of Molag Bal. What would you have smashed with this replica mace? :)

    The video was a little obnoxious, but the replica mace looked amazing.

    Geeky fun! now I need Bethesda to get an official replica so i can mount it next to my Frostmourne Sword

    A Car would have been good to see what is left after a few swings, but even for a marine, it was still hard to wield in 1 hand. Very nice weapon though, well forged, salute to the swordmaster for forging it.

    Dear staff,

    An amazing video you have posted on the mace of Molag Bal, but perhaps it would be courteous to mention Jake Powning (the smith) his name in the news article itself? (*)

    The forging of the mace was fascinating and of course the actual use of the weapon was pretty entertaining as well.

    That girl is REALLY obnoxious.

    The mace looked nice, but the *demonstration* of it's use was kinda lame. Clearly the guy was not strong enough to wield such a heavy weapon, and it only made him look unfortunately incompetent, which I'm sure he isn't when dealing with something closer to his scale. They really should have gone to find a proper Nord strongman to swing this bronze bat about. They can be found here:



    Also, before you have a tiny person (guy or girl) swinging this, maybe they should have used their budget to have a smaller version made for her to use.

    If you aren't strong enough to swing something faster than just dropping it and letting gravity do the rest, you're really wasting its potential.

    I would buy that mace hands down.

    The most bothersome part is that the mace of molag bal in Skyrim only had 3 faces (sides) not 4 like the one the smith made. Im not sure if something changed from skyrim to eso but..... the one in skyrim was amazballs


    So i checked in skyrim after watching that video 3 sides. Looked at several images of molag bal holding his mace from ESO, also 3 sides.

    The mace they made in the video had 4 sides. Each side was molded separately. It weighed in at 35lbs. If they had made a more accurate depiction it would be amost 9 pounds lighter, weighing in at around 26 lbs. This seems more likely to be properly scaled.

    That chick took no care or effort to do any research before hand.
    Such a disgrace to such a beautiful weapon.


    still though, considering contacting that smith to make a proper molag bal's mace for me.

    Some nice ice sculptures would have done the trick...Perhaps one of Molag himself?

    'Wasting its potential...'

    That's a physics joke, right?

    Is this the weapon being used as the (un)official [Bot Ban Hammer of Awesomeness]?
