Nah, just use the crushing weapon within your speciality. Your choices, based on primary weapon type:
  • Axe/Mace: mace
  • Broadsword: light club
  • Flail: already crushing
  • Polearm: poleaxe, or maul at polearm-4, or staff at polearm-4
  • Shortsword: baton
  • Spear: use staff at spear-2
  • Two-Handed Sword: use quarterstaff 2-handed.
