Combat rogue? A nice marker of the messed up class system WoW has at the moment - one handed axe, on a class famous for stealth? Yes, makes perfect sense. Hey, while we're at it, give him a mechanical mace, with steam sounds and such. I'm sure it won't break the stealth.

There is nothing inherently unstealthy about an ax. A big purple glowing one perhaps, but your standard hatchet or small ax can be used very effectively when sneaking up behind someone. The guy on the receiving end sure wont be thinking "What? You seriously just snuck up on me and chopped me with an axe?! Who does that? C'mon man... you got to use a knife! Get with the program!!"

Consider the attack mechanic. Axes deal damage through inertia, while a dagger needs a thrust movement or a slash. Both slashing and piercing require significantly less space for maneuver compared to the movement one has to make to provide enough momentum for an ax to do its thing. Hence my attitude toward axes and so called "fist weapons" rogues can use but lack the required finesse. :-)

Really, when it comes to stealthily killing someone, the only thing a dagger has over an ax is the ability to slit a throat from behind someone. In order to pierce skin and do damage to someone, both work just fine at a close range; you really don't need a whole lot of space to generate enough inertia to puncture some one's skin with a sufficiently sharpened ax. And really, rogues work primarily with the element of surprise... some one would definitely be shocked by a hatchet suddenly sticking out of the back of their neck if they are alive long enough to register what happened. But if we really want to get into better methods of stealthy dispatching people, probably the best is to do it in a way that people wouldn't even know you did anything (i.e. tainting their food or drink with something highly toxic).

You will bring me to the point where I am forced to provide a drawing.
Anyway, to keep it brief: yes, of course, axes are just as good as daggers, perhaps even better than them! I cannot understand why throughout history, off hand weaponry has always been a piercing weapon, not a slashing one such as the ax. What were they thinking? Wait. I think I have it. Imagine having someone with an ax on your chest, in a hand-to-hand encounter, trying to deal damage to your pericardium. Hmm, now that might be an issue, I think. Oh, no, sure an ax is just as useful.

I rest my case. I'm a Troll Hunter in WoW, but trolling here is no fun. Because you're right and because I'm right. Off to sharpen some arrows.
