Eternal Flame Mallet

To obtain this legendary weapon in Assassins Creed Osyssey, you must deal with all mercenaries who have the suffix "Smoldering" in their names.

Mallet deals colossal fire damage and works great with the Agamemnon armor, which we wrote about in our armor guide in Assassins Creed Odyssey.
Sword of Damocles
