Morning stars (also "morningstar") were a simple type of one-handed melee weapon.[4]


Morningstars were very similar to a spiked club, but with refinements. Their shafts were usually made of wood and longer than a heavy mace. Their heads were typically round and covered in metal set. Around twenty spikes were set into this metal, radiating like a star, with the biggest spike extending straight from the top..[4]


Morningstar were typically wielded one-handed and did both bludgeoning and piercing damage. It was a simple weapon that did not require any training for most classes.[citation needed]
