I've been watching LoadingReadyRun's playthrough of Cursed Crusade, and they can't tell any difference between the weapons they are constantly picking up, for example a 'Balanced Mace' vs a 'Barbarian Mace' or a 'Long Gladius' vs a 'Ceremonial Sword'. I've tried the usual google search terms, but can't seem to find a list of weapons. Are they all just renames of the same stats, or is there actually a difference in terms of effectiveness?

I think the weapons list is combined here with the combos and techniques, the weapons are pretty simple, two-handed sword, mace, one-handed sword...I tried doing multiple combos with different named maces and they work and have the same effectiveness with both names thus leading me to believe they are actually all the same, and not different as I listed above

While it claims to have a weapons list at the top, I've looked through that guide more then once and can't find it: Can you directly link it, or quote an example? –  Canageek Jul 2 '12 at 16:31
    
Updated answer and actually changed it after reading through that again –  Chris James Champeau Jul 3 '12 at 18:28
    
Yeah, I'm not looking for the difference between a sword and a mace. I'm interested in the difference between two swords of the same type: ex a Barbarian sword and a Ceremonial Sword. –  Canageek Jul 3 '12 at 18:55
