Hammers

Diablo 2 hammers
Diablo 2 Hammers are weapons with a metal head and a wooden handle. Clubs, hammers, maces and scepters are all shown as “Mace Class” in-game. However, they are actually different weapon types and quite different when used for runewords.

Blunt Weapons

In addition to clubs, maces, hammers, scepters and wands are also classified as blunt weapons, and all do 150% damage to the Undead.

All blunt weapons in the game do 150% damage to the undead. This is like saying the item has a +50% damage modifier on it vs. the Undead. This adds 50% of the total non-elemental weapon damage on top.

In Diablo 2 this is the only way to add damage just to the Undead, while in the Expansion there are affixes that add damage to Undead and others that add it to Demons.

Mace-type weapons do have much less range than other weapons. Legendary Mallets (1 handed mace type) have only range 1, and Thunder Mauls (2 handed mace type) have only a range of 3. Therefore, mace-type items have the second least range of all item types, only surpassed by daggers. To compare, axes have the second greatest range of all item types, and some spears and polearms have the greatest range of 5.

  • Damage Bonus: This determines how you multiply the item damage by your stats to reach the actual damage. Each 100 points in that stat doubles your weapon’s total physical damage. All Maces are 110 Str, while most other melee weapons are 100 Str. This grants Maces 10% more damage bonus from stats.
  • Item Level: Used in many in-game calculations. Monsters must be of this level to drop the item, and it factors in when you get to gamble for this item type as well.
  • Weapon Speed: A relative comparison to other weapons of the same type. 0 is the base -10, -20, etc is faster, 10, 20, etc is slower, always in increments of 10. Each 10 is equivalent to an SIAS item. Characters are abbreviated to their first letter, with Am = Amazon and As = Assassin.
  • Range: Goes from 1 (least) to 5 (most), and is identical for all weapon types. I.E. a 3 sword = a 3 spear = a 3 hammer.
