Pyon Stinger Mace is a new release, and although its effects do not look too special at a glance, this weapon isn't too shabby assuming that its price drops in time.
So let's first speculate where the price of this weapon will go. This weapon is very new at the time of review, and it is only R96. The only time R96 weapons fail to reach the Shop Wizard is if they are of Rusty Pitchfork or Sophies Magic Hat. Pyon Stinger Mace is respectable, but not as good as these weapons, so expect Pyon Stinger Mace to fall to Shop Wizard prices in due time.
Pyon Stinger Mace is a 6-5 Dual Duty, dealing 11 total icons. Pyon Stinger Mace is not particularly strong, but it would be considered serviceable at a Shop Wizard price.
