For the perfect finish you should say at the end 'All loot', which is sometimes not only almost impossible to find every coin lost there, but also sometimes causes some ethical qualms about removing the 4 coins from a beggar's basket.

Sorry, basically anything with sufficient mass will work, such as chairs and other objects.

In that case I wonder why the blackjack itself should not work. Maybe you juat gave me an excuse to fix that in my Unofficial Patch ;)!

The blackjack is really low mass, and you can't swing it that fast.

A box weighing like 20 pounds falling on your head at some high speed is a lot more energy.

And a chair is also pretty heavy in comparison to the backjack. Can you pick up a chair with one hand and hold it over your head?

I always assumed I'd taste like boot leather.

I disagree. I think the reallife counterparts of blackjacks were quite heavy and could have brought up to a tremendous speed hitting only a very small area. Compared to that a wooden chair just falling from a moderate height should not have enough impact.

Compared to a chair....made of solid wood.

Most info I can find online is saps/blackjacks around 12 ounces.

Here is a vintage one, it's 8 ounces.

Even lightweight chairs designed for mobile use, were still around 180-240 ounces.

The lightest example I could find was a pine chair used for travelling shows so needed to be lightweight, and that was still 160 ounces (10 pounds).

Still unless you drop the chair from very high up, he would not have much acceleration and probably would also not hit a sensitive part of the enemy. Speaking of which, are the elite guards helmets supposed to have special buffers onto the shoulders or why do they don't react to blackjacking while other guards with similar helmets do?

Applying a high pressure over a small area is something you'd want if you wanted to fracture (impact) the bone.

For achieving concussion, it'd take a lot of kinetic energy to that body part which is passed on underneath, shearing nerve axons and membranes so that their function is disrupted.

Kinetic energy increases linearly with mass but exponentially with velocity, so maybe a very fast blackjack can attain more KE than a chair that dropped only from a couple meters. But what might be worth imagining: how fast could you swing/throw a chair with one arm, and how would that compare to letting it drop x metres?

 

Re: the elite guard helmets, I suppose they have better protective layers to dissipate the kinetic energy of the impact.

With the heavily armored elite guards I don't even try to do anything with Blackjack, with this I only make them angry, against these by definition only a gas arrow or mine works.

Or drop something heavy on their heads 😜

EDIT: Honestly it's super easy, you just need a bit of practice.
