Is a Maul an ax or a mace?

As a barbarian, I want to use a maul later in life. I am currently level 12 and have a civerbs cudgel, and I know that's a mace, but later I want to use Thunder Maul. My question is, is a Maul considered an ax or a mace for barbarian weapon specialty?

mace of course, nothing to do with axes. It's listed as a mace class in game too. Just look at your weapon description :)

Mace mastery includes all weapons considered "Blunt", including mauls, hammers, scepters, staves, and wands. This does not include Sorc orbs, which are their own class of weapon. I don't think orbs are even considered weapons for the "Rod" crafting recipe - AS says that "Rods" are scepters, staves, and wands for the caster craft.

Good luck,

For runewords' sake, War Hammers, Mauls and Great Mauls (and their exceptional/elite versions) are hammers and not maces. A HotO will not work in a Maul, even though HotO can be made in maces.

However, for the sake of a Barbarian Mastery, yes, hammers are a subclass of maces.

Even the "all weapons" runewords can't be made in orbs. I really hope the next patch has some orb-only rws for all these 2-socketed orbs I've got lying about :)

i knew staff-only RWs couldn't be made in orbs, but not even all-weapon RWs can't be? wow.

Is there even ever going to be a new patch? They need to fix leap and leap attack, it stops working if you get hit in the air. Not good news when those are my two top skills.
