The mace is a one-handed (with the exception of the barrows maces) melee weapon, and it is one of the few weapons that provide a Prayer bonus, a trait shared by only a few other weapon-class items. Maces are identical in attack speed and damage to scimitars and daggers.
Players can buy maces from bronze to adamant excluding black and white maces in Flynn's Mace Market in Falador or the Warriors' Guild Armoury. Rune maces can be bought from the Champions' Guild. Dragon maces can be bought from the Heroes' Guild and require the completion of the Heroes' Quest to be wielded. The white mace can be bought from the White Knight Master Armoury at Noble rank. Bronze to rune maces barring black and white maces can also be smithed using 1 bar of the respective metal.

- In Legacy Mode (and prior to the Evolution of Combat), the player uses both hands to swing a main hand mace when attacking, despite it being a one-handed weapon. However, they use one hand to swing the off-hand.
- Maces appear smaller when sheathed than they do in the hand.
- Prior to the Evolution of Combat, maces were not often used, as they had a relatively slow attack speed and less damage than the more popular weapons. They have since gained popularity in Player killing scenarios, due to their Prayer bonus, as prayers are frequently utilised in PvP scenarios.
