The War Club of the Mataru is a soulbound club in Pillars of Eternity, added in the Deadfire Pack. It can only be used by a barbarian, fighter, monk, paladin, priest or rogue.

Description[edit | edit source]

As with other soulbound items, the in-game description is only gradually revealed. The description starts as just two paragraphs, and more are added each time the club is upgraded:

Level 1[edit | edit source]

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.
The Huana, a cultural alliance of aumaua tribes native to the Deadfire Archipelago, stand in opposition to the predations of the Príncipi pirates and the machinations of the mercantile companies that would exploit the Deadfire. The Mataru, the Huana's military caste, both exercise power over the tribes and defend them against their many enemies and the dangers of the sea.

A Deadfire woodworker carved this sturdy club, blessed by the priests of Ngati, to be top heavy and etched it with symbols of the sea. Its once-bright paints have been all but erased by time and hard use.

Level 2[edit | edit source]

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.
Not every tribe of the Deadfire supports the Huana queen's attempts to appease the trading companies from the Vailian Republics and Rauatai. The more warlike tribes took up arms against the foreign invaders, resulting in terrible casualties on both sides.

A Vailian trader collected this club from the wreckage of such a skirmish, claiming it as a trophy of her journeys among the eastern islands.

Level 3[edit | edit source]

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.
Before it fell into Vailian hands, this club passed from Mataru to Mataru within the Wahaki tribe. According to the priests of the tribe, the club belonged to a single soul, and each wielder was the reincarnation of that same spirit.

Far from being typical of Huana traditions, this marked the bearer of the club as someone expected of great things.

Level 4[edit | edit source]

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.
The priests claimed the weapon a potent artifact. Originally crafted for the warrior-priest Timauko, who later became a chieftain of the tribe, it passed to his soul's heir after he gave his life to stop a kraken from preying on the tribe's spear fishers.

As a club carved from the roots of a tree that grew twined among an outcropping of adra, the priests taught that it drew forth the memories of the soul that bore it prior from the warrior who wielded it. With each Mataru who took it up, the weapon would gain power, and the longer a warrior wielded it, the more of that power they could rely on.

Level 5[edit | edit source]

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.
Still a child, Durama, the final bearer of the club, helped the Wahaki fend off Vailians hoping to establish a port on their islands. She lived up to her ancestry during the battle, boarding a Vailian clipper and clubbing both the captain and first mate to death among a storm of bullets before escaping overboard into the water.

Though the Huana rebuffed the Vailian aggression, Durama's boat was struck by a cannonball that reduced it to a bloody jumble of splintered planks and disembodied limbs. Her club was never seen by the Huana again.
