Think of rogues as a various group of people who live outside the law or live in the rough underbelly of their cities. that would include assassins, thiefs, highwaymen, thugs, and punks. I think the talent trees represent this as well.while some might think an assassin wouldn't use a mace (I think some would personally) a common criminal might, especially in a bar of some kind. As to why they dont use axes, for many of the reasons already mentioned they require alot of brute force and take alot of time to hack off limbs. not to mention thier inaccuracy.as to why they can use maces but not axes, while they both share characteristics, maces are more of the way a rogue would fight: dirty. Hit someone in the head with it and they are unconsious, letting you get away of finish the job with a knife. Rogues concentrate on quick efficent killing that allows them to get the upper hand on an opponent with the lowest chance of failure or injury. That is something that an axe cannot accomplish while a mace could.with the new change to the mace spec talent, this still holds true. Maces also are good at causing unseen damage. get hit in the gut with a bat before? it takes the wind out of ya and requires more energy to absorb such a heavy hit, hence the armor ignore. Imagine a warrior in plate armor that is difficult to penetrate. A mace still will hurt even if it cant get through to the flesh and can even dent the armor making it more difficult to move or breathe.

Oh please. I like to think of myself as the gentleman thief. Dashing, well-dressed, and oh so upset when blood gets everywhere. Axes? So messy! And all the screaming, besides. It's so much more efficient to slide a dagger between the third and fourth ribs, or simply bash them over the head til grey goo dribbles out their ears.Of course, when you need to make a quick getaway, a good gun and a few bombs always do the trick.
