Type: Passive
MP Cost: N/A

This skill allows you to smash certain pieces of equipment into their magical essences with a tenderizing hammer.

Lets you smash equipment

Source: Guild Trainer
Price: 15,000 Meat
Class: Seal Clubber
Level: 15
Effect: Enables you to use a tenderizing hammer to smash almost any piece of equipment into chunks of essence, and grants Muscle classes access to The Malus of Forethought within The Brotherhood of the Smackdown.

When you acquire the skill:

Torg looks up at you. "Lemme show you something," he says, and points to a giant hammer in the back corner that you hadn't noticed before. "This is the Malus of Forethought. You're probably strong enough to use it now. You can pulverize stuff with your regular tenderizing hammer, but the Malus allows you to combine the essences of things you pulverize."

Wads take one spleen hit. Additionally, each wad gives Muscle, Mysticality, and Moxie substats and an effect that lasts ten adventures. The effects give a bonus varying from +10% to +30% to each stat (+60% total spread across all three) and +10 elemental damage. Twinkly wads only give +10% to all stats and +5 melee and spell damage.

Elemental wads can be transmuted to other elements by cooking them with a twinkly wad with the skill The Way of Sauce.

  • Obtained by pulverizing an ultra rare.
  • It gives the player enough stats to reach their next level and half that amount to each off-stat.

Elemental Jewels

Elemental jewels can be obtained by pulverizing equipment which would produce elemental wads, at 1% of the rate of wads. They are jewelrymaking components for really expensive jewelry. They were added with the advent of NS13.

Standard Rewards

Each Standard ascension outfit pulverizes into a unique item. In addition to being spleen consumables, these items can be used to purchase the previous year's standard rewards from The Armory and Leggery.

How Much Do You Get?

How much you get from smashing an item depends on its power; the table below shows the relation between power and what smashing an item will yield. For equipment with no visible power, such as Accessories and Off-hand Items, the requirement can be used as a guide (but may not always be correct, as some items have their requirements decoupled from their power).

Each elemental wad has a 1% chance of being replaced by an elemental jewel instead.

Power Requirement Yield
10-35 0-2 1 powder
40-55 5-13 2 powders
60-75 15-23 3 powders
80-95 25-33 4 powders or 1 nugget
100-115 35-43 3 powders/1 nugget or 2 nuggets
120-135 45-53 3 nuggets
140-155 55-63 4 nuggets or 1 wad
160-175 65-73 3 nuggets/1 wad or 2 wads
180+ 75+ 3 wads

What Kind Do You Get?

Pulverizing items that deliver elemental damage may yield elemental powders/nuggets/wads of the same elemental type.

Pulverizing items that protect from elemental damage may yield elemental powders/nuggets/wads of the types that element is most vulnerable toward. Example: pulverizing a lihc face (spooky resistance) yields hot and stench powders. (See Elements)

Pulverizing items that are enchanted but which neither protect from nor deliver elemental damage produces only twinkly powders/nuggets/wads. The only exceptions to this rule are items which can be purchased directly from NPC stores or made entirely from purchasable components (such as the Gnollish autoplunger); these produce useless powder.

Items that yield more than one type of powder/nugget/wad will give each type with equal probability. (E.g. If an item gives exactly one nugget, but may give either a spooky, a hot, or a twinkly nugget, you have a 33% chance of each one.)

Pulverizing unenchanted items (including some starting equipment, NPC store items) yields only useless powder, which can be used for nothing.

Pulverizing an ultra rare will yield an ultimate wad in addition to the normal powder/nuggets/wads as above.

Pulverizing a boss reward from Hobopolis, or one of Mother Slime's clan-distributable drops will give an epic wad.

After NS-13, the four components of the Antique Arms And Armor outfit, which used to smash to wads, smash to useless powder.

Pulverizing yearly standard path items gives you a special material which can then be traded for yearly path items from the year before in the The Armory and Leggery. For example, you can pulverize an Aerogel item (2017 softcore standard path) to get aerosolized aerogel, which you can trade for wicker items (2016 softcore standard path) which can be pulverized to get wicker bits which can be traded for polyester items (2015 softcore standard path)


  • Jick explained on the radio show on 4 November 2013 that, in the game world, Turtle Tamer equipment made from living turtles is NOT smashed into powder as a whole: The turtle is only hit on the edge and will be totally fine. It just scoots off into a sewer, where it will join his brethren and you get a little bit of the powder that you knocked off of its shell. No turtles get harmed in the process!
  • Attempting to use this skill when you don't have it gives the message:
You don't know how to properly smash stuff.


  • Prior to the Seal Clubber skill revamp on September 24, 2013, this skill used to cost 30,000 Meat.
  • Prior to the spleen system nerf on January 1, 2018, elemental wads used to give one adventure when consumed.


  • This may be a reference to the Enchanting tradeskill in the MMORPG, World of Warcraft. This tradeskill gives the ability to disenchant items into various reagents that can then be used to create a plethora of power-ups.
  • The "you commence to smashin'" message received when pulverizing an item may be a reference to the Aqua Teen Hunger Force episode "Dumber Dolls", which features a dancing hillbilly action figure who frequently exclaims, "commence to jigglin'!"
