For the purchasable item, see  [Mace].

A mace is a one-handed or two-handed blunt weapon, usually in the form of a large heavy metal piece (with a varying set of short edges, points, or protrusions) on a short rod.

A popular sub-type is the hammer which resembles the more practical tool used in some professions.

One-handed maces are often used by combat rogues because of their high delay and high damage range, and priests, shamans, and druids because many exist that give procs or attribute bonuses beneficial to casters. They can also be used by death knights, paladins, warriors and monks.

Two-handed maces can be used by death knights, druids, paladins, shamans, and warriors. According to Warcraft lore, the two-handed warhammer was the favored weapon of the Knights of the Silver Hand, led by Uther the Lightbringer. Following the death of Uther at the hands of Arthas and the devastation of the Order, the weapon fell out of favor as that was exclusively used by paladins.

Humans and dwarves have [Mace Specialization], which increases Expertise in that weapon slot by 1% when wielding a mace.
