    Always been curious re Macing dropping a foes stam.

    Does this help vs boss types who are mainly mele, eg parox, rikki, putrifier?

    Is this a good enough reason to go macing?

    Well, all damage lowers stamina. You can see this with fast-moving bosses that move slower when they're at 20% health.

    Whether it affects the actual swing speed? Dunno, haven't tested that.
    Whether macing lowers stamina significantly more? Dunno.

    A Tamer with Animal Lore would be able to test this best.
    (or hop on test center)

    That's exactly what i need....

    will do when the servers go down...

    From UOguide

    "Simply put, mace class weapons are designed to crush (or at least bruise) your opponents. Sometimes spikes are added in order to cause additional flesh wounds.
    They deal an extra hit to the stamina level of targets, while also lowering the durability of their armor at an accelerated rate."

    I don't think this information applies anymore. Its old old stuff, back when they first gave weapons specials, cept they just happened rather than being selcted. Back them maces tore through armor (if you saw a parry macer you just left because they were so hard to kill and ruined your stuff) and they did more stamina damage.

    I think all melee weapons are exactly the same now.

    I don't know, but beating the crap out of someone with a quarter staff appeals to me in some way.
