In Overlord: Dark Legend the options are axe, sword and hammer. Their characteristics are different and so are their bonuses.
The Steel version is the bare bones weapon you start out with. It can be upgraded in the Forge, but can easily be replaced by a Durium or Arcanium version later in the game. Durium not only adds damage, but also allows the user to put more minion Lifeforce into the weapon. This can make the weapon a very strong and well balanced death dealing tool. Arcanium adds even more damage and slots for the minions to sacrifice themselves.
For details on how the minion sacrifices effect the weapon, see Minion Effects.
This is the weapon that the Overlord starts the game with. The axe was designed as a balance between power and speed, and as such it is a nice middle ground between the sword and mace.
Axe Gold Max. # Minions Steel 1500 175 Durium 3000 300 Arcanium 5000 500
This is the weapon with the largest default damage, but subsequently is the slowest weapon in the game. The weapon is probably most effective in knocking down large waves of enemies and dealing sufficient damage before they get back up. Damage is not an area that many commonly upgrade this weapon with since it already has a large damage default.
Mace Gold Max. # Minions Steel 1500 175 Durium 3000 300 Arcanium 5000 500
The fastest weapon in the game but also the weakest, it can easily shred through several enemies in a short amount of time. The sword also is considerably less likely to knock enemies back, but can be upgraded in both these aspects at the forge.
