Lightning Hammers are enchanted hammers crafted by orc shamans in tribute to the warchief, Thrall. Tribal warriors who perform deeds of exceptional skill and bravery sometimes receive a lightning hammer as a reward.
Each lightning hammer is a throwing hammer no longer than an orc's forearm. A fist-sized copper hammer head tops a black wooden haft wrapped with copper wire.
Shamans sometimes string colored beads or small tokens on the wire, to represent the tribe’s colors or the great deeds of the warrior who now carries the weapon.
