GuildWars Wiki

The Axe Mastery attribute reflects a Warrior's skill when using an axe. This is not a primary attribute and may be used by secondary warriors.

Guild Wars description

Axe Mastery increases the damage you do with axes and your chance to inflict a critical hit when using an axe. Many skills, especially axe attack skills, become more effective with higher Axe Mastery.

General description

Axe Mastery concerns itself with the axe type of weapons as well as skills that require the use of an axe (see Axe Mastery skills). Also, rank in this attribute is a requirement to meet the maximum damage of certain axes.

The Axe Mastery attribute increases the damage, adrenaline gain and the ability to extend the duration of a variety of conditions on an enemy through axe mastery skills.

As well as increasing the critical rate, the axe mastery attribute will add hidden damage by changing the Effective Damage Level (EffDL) if certain conditions are met. For further information about this, see Damage Level.
