A Righteous Mace (ホーリィメイス, Holy Mace?) is a Mace found in Golden Sun and Golden Sun: The Lost Age.

Basic Description by Game[edit]

The Righteous Mace increases the wielder's attack by 112 points. It can be bought for 8400 coins and sold for 6300 coins. The wielder of the Righteous Mace recovers 3 more HP per turn.

The Righteous Mace is sold as an Artifact in Lalivero in Golden Sun, and can be equipped by Isaac, Garet, and Mia. In The Lost Age, it is sold in Contigo and can be equipped by Felix, Sheba, and Piers. The Righteous Mace's Unleash effect is Blinding Smog, which is an attack that is based on normal attack damage, adds 49 damage points, and then modifies the resulting damage based on the user and the target's Jupiter power and resistance. The attack may also inflict Delusion on the target. Blinding Smog visually resembles the user attacking and a bright blue-tinted cloud being emitted upon impact.

Analysis[edit]

In Golden Sun, it has the highest attack rating increase of the weapon artifacts sold in Lalivero, the last shop in the game, and those who equip it on Mia note that it has a sharp increase in attack over the Crystal Rod. If they actually use Mia for physically attacking, then this way of using it would be valid, but various players would prefer using the Crystal Rod, with an Unleash that has the far more desirable side-effect of instantly KO'ing the target. Depending on what weapons the party might have by Lalivero, this is likely to be a good buy, but may also be obsoleted by other weapons later.

In The Lost Age, though, the Righteous Mace's late availability Great Western Sea makes it similar to the Silver Blade in that it will be far, far out-powered by the equipment the party would surely have amassed by that point. This would, of course, relevantly apply to Isaac's party if it is still equipped with this mace when they join Felix, for many weapons would become available to serve as direct improvements over this mace.
