To be honest, I stopped using hammers and axes, it doesn't feel natural to charge up a standard attack. It makes sense for bows since you still launch the arrow at any time, as well as special attacks, because a special attack is something you'd want to commit to. I think the best way to adjust how these weapons works is to have them wind up automatically, with a light and heavy attack based on how long you wait between clicks. The hammer light attack would be a narrow swing similar to the second broadsword swing, while the heavy attack is a standard wide swing. The light axe attack would be the standard one handed melee swing seen from the short sword and dagger, while the heavy axe attack is a wide swing similar to the Soulseeker's attack. Of course holding down on the weapon click will have them swing automatically like most other melee weapons, but at a slower pace than the broadsword or shortsword. I await your opinions and feedback.
