A Heavy Mace is a Mace-class weapon available in both Golden Sun and Golden Sun: The Lost Age. In Golden Sun it is bought in Bilibin, Imil, and Kolima and in The Lost Age and the towns Alhafra and Garoh in The Lost Age. Being a Mace-class weapon, a Heavy 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 26 points. Its buy value is 500 coins and its sell value is 375 coins.
In Golden Sun when it can be first bought in Bilibin, it is only slightly stronger than the Battle Axe which can be bought as early as in the earlier town of Vault, but it is practically twice as expensive, and yet it is also only half as expensive as the strongest weapon in the vendors at that point, Broad Swords. This, along with the fact that Ivan cannot equip maces, severely limits its practical usability.
In Golden Sun: The Lost Age, its practical usability is still very limited because both towns where it is sold, Alhafra and Garoh, would only end up having their vendors available to the player after the player's party has already had the ample opportunity to amass much stronger weapons. Alhafra can only be reached through Yampi Desert, and an easy-to-reach chest contains a very powerful-at-that-point Mace artifact named the Blow Mace, which has 45 Attack points and an Unleash. Garoh's vendors are only open after completing Air's Rock and getting the Reveal Psynergy, which is necessary to engage in cutscenes with Garoh's master Maha, and in Air's Rock the strongest weapon in the game you can get yet is the Storm Brand, which has 60 Attack points as an Unleash. To put this in perspective, when Piers joins later on equipped with the next level of mace-class weapon, the Battle Mace, the Storm Brand, as a hand-me-down weapon at that point, is still an even stronger weapon than his Battle Mace for him to equip instantly.
