The Daedric Mace is an one-handed weapon in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. The mace has the 2nd highest base damage of one-handed weapons in the base game, with the Mace of Molag Bal being the strongest in the base game and the Dragonbone mace having the highest base damage with the addition of Dawnguard. Despite being more expensive to forge and having a greater weight, the Daedric mace has the same base damage as the ebony mace.
This mace is primarily black and gray in color. The overall finish is matte, with some gloss on the hammer marks and edges. Several rivets on the mace hold it together.
Four serrated flanges curve in to form a crown at the tip of the mace. Red inlays are engraved into the flanges, they are faint in size and distinction, and emit a slight glow.
On the central head of the mace there are four secondary flanges attached to the handle used as a support for the primary flanges, decorative engravings run down the length of these.
The handle of the mace has two sections separated with a metal ring, each section has two parallel metal beams and three adjacent metal clasps. Brown leather strips are held down by the clasps and provide the grip for the handle. The handle has a metal ring on the bottom and continues to the pommel of the mace which has four small tertiary flanges in the form of spikes with a blunt exterior and bladed interior. They show visible warping from hammering during crafting.
