Iron Scepter is a great defensive weapon, as it increases Armor Class of its user by one.
In-game description Edit
A short iron scepter with a large, heavy ball at the top of the hilt. The ball has 5 pointed facets jetting outward, allowing for additional piercing on top of the already heavy hitting bludgeoning damage that can be done with this weapon. The thick iron in the hilt can be used for ample protection against oncoming blows if skillfully used to block.
Wpn Type: Heavy
