The origins of this gorgeous gem-headed warhammer are shrouded in mystery. It has resurfaced many times in history, and served many masters, all of which were said to become invincible when wielding it. According to popular myth, it is the hammer that finds and chooses its next master.
The Hammerthyst is located at the Homestead, through the Oakfield Demon Door. Opening the door requires the "Blow Kiss" expression. Use the "Blow Kiss" expression when prompted by the Demon Door, which is found by taking the winding path leading to the lake from The Sandgoose. You can also become engaged in front of the door to open it by bringing your soon-to-be spouse into the door's sight and giving them a ring. If you are already married, bringing your spouse will open the door as well. You now have access to, and ownership of the Serenity Farm--a small area with a house and a windmill. Inside the windmill is a treasure chest containing the Hammerthyst. If you proposed to someone, you can make them very happy by setting Serenity Farm as your marital home.
