Possibly I'm doing somewhat wrong or don't know somewhat. I've tended to make use of maces in the game, however as far as I've perceive, there's no separate skill in favor of blade/blunt similar to in Oblivion. If you take an elven mace and an elven sword, the mace has a superior damage rating. This doesn't make sense. Moreover they are supposed to be equal or one type of weapon is presently supposed to perform more damage. For the reason that of this I've pretty much avoided swords within the game. Not sure if it's a bug or what.
