i was just using a golden war hammer with 19-34 req.11 and 15% while enchanted(almost always enchanted with vigorous spirit) and +29 health, when i had this hammer i was running around with 8(+1 from helm) hammer mastery, lvl 14
i didnt really like the skin so i bought a Victo's Maul with 19-35 15%^50 and +30 health and a req. 8, put one more in hammer mastery for 9
started a quest in lions arch and went out and killed some fire imps and EVERYTIME i hit them i was for 50-60 (with the war hammer i was getting like 10-15), and i dont have any +dmg hammer skills becasue i am running a knockdown holy strike build(i would have used irresistible blow but i forgot to put it on there)
so my question is: how much does hammer mastery affect my dmg because that is just an insane diffrence, or is it because those imps have like negative armor?
