I was thinking earlier ... why would they call the 'two handed axe' that when ALL axes are two handed ? why is war axe listed under the 'axes,' above 'bashing weapons' ? it's a mace weapon. http://uo.stratics.com/content/skills/blacksmithing.php the mace class already has one handed mace weapons; hammer pick, scepter and wand etc. axes need a one handed axe weapon. axes of fury for example, are two hand axes, one held in each hand. if one were lost, you'd be left with a single one handed axe. lumber was nerfed long ago, there is nothing to worry about.
