Bone Handles must be crafted using a Bone, a Piece of Dark Metal, and a Dark Rod. The only way to obtain a Dark Rod is by defeating the Dark Vortex. These can be found at night and will disappear during the day, as it’s a Spirit. On the other hand, Pieces of Dark Metal can be obtained from Chests or by killing some mobs from the Born in Chaos mod.

The Shell Mace has an Attack Damage value of 8, and an Attack Speed value of 1.4. However, the Shell Mace also comes with a passive effect. You deal extra damage to targets (up to double) if you and your target are standing in water or in the rain.
