Cumbersome staves, crafted from solid metal. Usually, seven-foot tall, three to four inches in diameter, and with a smooth rounded head at either end. These weapons seem rather impractical until you see a horse skull or a knight's plate armor shatter under the force delivered by an end of a Heavy War Staff! Its use is simplistic with attack types being somewhere between a normal quarterstaff and a bat, making it just slightly less accessible to the average person.
