    Default Dwarven Axe Proficiency not given?

    Sorry if this has been brought up before - I searched the forum and got no hits.

    Why doesn't my Dwarven Rogue/Cleric get Dwarven Axe Proficiency? On character creation, it says I have it, but in game - nope.

    Dwarves get dwarven axe as a Martial Weapon Proficiency .. those two classes don't get all martial weapons, so you won't get dwarven axes without splashing in one of the 'main' melee classes - fighter, barbarian, paladin, ranger.

    Well it's kinda an upgrade basically.

    Elves get auto longsword/longbow but that is worthless for melee types that already get it.

    Dwarves get dwarven axes but that is worthless for characters without martial weapons.

    It kind of works that way ... it moves the weapon down one category ... i.e. the daxe from exotic to martial and the longbow/longsword from martial to simple

    3/4 BAB classes with some martial proficiencies really probably should get d-axe proficiency.
