The Hammer is a melee weapon that deals blunt damage, which can stun monsters. Though it is a larger weapon, it does not affect mobility. It has the ability to deal powerful charged attacks. The hammer’s spinning charged attacks have the potential to do huge amounts of damage if mastered. However, though it doesn’t affect mobility, attacks are slower and heavier, meaning you need to be landing your attacks consistently. This is especially true of silkbind attacks as you’ll be left momentarily incapacitated following the attacks.
