Axes are cheaper as less ppl use them, and they dont look as good damage wise. This is true for both 2 handed and 1 handed versions.What about basic price of just the different ones. Is Martel more expensive than AA what about the one handed set? Since more people use Maces are they cheaper or less expensive because they are easier to find. Basically would the same ed and mods on a Mace and Axe be the same price, or would one be more expensive?
Also ancient axes not only have lower damage, they dont have +50% damage to undead, and that matters in some places like the chaos sanctuary. And martels fall more often than ancient axes do, so thats another reason you will see 20x more ppl using a martel over an ancient axe. And some ppl prefer battle hammers over any other one handed weapon for pvp, and not only cuz it has the highest damage of all 1-handers; the slowness of bh's over its counterpart, the naga, doesn't matter in pvp. Since bh's are mace class, as are martels, you see why so many barbs go for that mastery.Axes are cheaper as less ppl use them, and they dont look as good damage wise. This is true for both 2 handed and 1 handed versions.
