The Sceptre of Chaos is a one-handed weapon found deep within the Infinite Dungeon — namely in the SIL. It is essential for an ordinary chaos god ending, but is widely believed to be close to useless as a weapon due to its significant downsides which include dooming while it is wielded, and constant corruption while it is being wielded or just carried.

DesirabilityEdit

The sceptre is essential for any characters attempting an Ordinary Chaos God ending (ultra endings require the trident instead). Otherwise, it is deemed a waste of time to retrieve it, as far better weapons can be found.

Guaranteed/Common SourcesEdit

The only place the Sceptre can be found is on the SIL (level 66 of the ID), meaning that if the PC leaves the level without getting the sceptre, it will be lost forever. It is guarded by the chaos knight MaLaKaI, who is extremely potent in melee, having a lot of attacks that can deal huge damage and heavily poison the PC in a single turn. Even a melee-centered character is advised to make use of other forms of combat, such as archery.

Note that as MaLaKaI is generated standing on the sceptre and not actually carrying it, it is usually possible to lure him away, teleport to the sceptre, seize it, and leave the level without any combat. The most effective tactic for doing so is to approach him in darkness.
