Visual effect for Vein Tap
|Effect name||Vein Tap|

In The Lost Age, Tartaurus Axes can be obtained as rare drops from Minotaurus that reside in Tundaria Tower and the Ankohl Ruins. Being an Axe, one can be equipped by Isaac, Felix, Garet, and Piers. The Tartarus Axe's Unleash attack is Vein Tap. Vein Tap converts all damage to Venus damage and attacks with an additional 43 attack points. Additionally, the attacker's HP is increased by the amount of damage done to the target. Visually, Vein Tap resembles a normal strike followed by medium-sized red spheres traveling from the target to the attacker.
While not the strongest weapon available at the time, a Tartarus Axe is a valuable weapon due to the restorative properties of its Unleash. While such an effect is not uncommon, the Tartarus Axe is the first such weapon available to warrior-style Adepts. Felix is usually the best target for the weapon, as his naturally high Venus Power means that both the damage and the HP restoration is maximized. Ultimately it serves as a placeholder for stronger HP-restoring weapons, such as the Rising Mace.

In Greek mythology, Tartarus (the name for which the Tartarus Axe takes after) is the lowest pit of the Underworld where Kronos and the other Titans were cast into after Zeus overthrew them.
