Rolf's Companion ( ( )
Item Type Melee weapon
Artifact? Yes
Weight 50s
Danger Level N/A
Material Mithril

The dwarven rune axe "Rolf's Companion" is an artifact weapon in ADOM. Whilst wielded it grants a small toughness boost, as well as some defensive bonuses and fire resistance. It also returns when thrown. It is always generated blessed.

If the axe is wielded with Rolf's Saviour, it boosts the to-hit and damage of the axe by +10 each... but only if the PC wields the axe in their left hand and the shield in the right.


The axe makes a good weapon until a better one is found; for some PCs that might be Big Punch, which can also be gained in Dwarftown. It actually has a higher damage potential if thrown than wielded and makes a very decent thrown weapon, though its range is not very good. Since the PC is likely to come across a lot better weapons in the game, it is perhaps not the most desirable thing to receive from the dwarven mystic.

Guaranteed/Common sourcesEdit

The dwarven mystic will give the PC Rolf's Companion if (s)he is lawful.
