A Battle Mace is a Mace-class weapon available in both Golden Sun and Golden Sun: The Lost Age. In Golden Sun it is bought in Xian, Altin, and Kalay and in The Lost Age and the towns Naribwe, Kibombo, and Yallam in The Lost Age. Being a Mace-class weapon, a Battle Mace can be equipped on Isaac, Garet, and Mia in the first game, together with Felix, Sheba, and Piers in the second. It increases the wielder's base Attack rating by 56 points. Its buy value is 2600 coins and its sell value is 1950 coins.
In Golden Sun when it can be first bought in Xian, it might be a worthy replacement weapon for Mia, but it most likely wouldn't last long on her because upcoming towns such as Altin and Kalay sell stronger Staff artifacts like the Psynergy Rod and the Frost Wand.
In Golden Sun: The Lost Age by the time it can be first bought in Naribwe, it is not a weapon one would buy eagerly because Felix would most likely be holding the stronger Storm Brand and Sheba would likely be holding the Mace artifact Blow Mace, which has a slightly smaller attack rating than a typical Battle Mace but would end up doing more damage on average because of its Unleash effect. You are better off keeping the Blow Mace on Sheba in that scenario. A little later on in Kibombo when Felix's party joins up with Piers, Pier's initial weapon is a Battle Mace. If Felix found the Disk Axe earlier in Kibombo Mountains and equipped himself with it, the Storm Brand would be an excellent hand-me-down weapon for Piers to equip right away, for it has both higher attack than his Battle Mace and a Mercury-based Unleash effect.
