the Electric Eel
A long thorned chainwhip that does electric damage.

The long whips can be used as grappling hooks, to catch far objects or hit far monsters, with an advantage: if you are skilled in whips, and apply a long whip on a flying monster, you will pull it to the ground, stunning it. If it is a medium size monster, your strength must be higher than 17 to do this; if large or huge, higher than 18/50; if gigantic, 25.

And why isn't the "Vampire Killer" Whip an artifact?[Quote]

Lovely, now iron chains are actually useful for something. Maybe they should cost more with this.[Quote]

Are there any Castlevania references to be had when using it on vampires and Vlad?[Quote]
