Weapons are items that can be wielded. While you can use the 'wield' command on other types of items, only weapons will be shown on your equipment list as <wielded>. Other items will be shown as <held>. Types of weaponry in MUME are: missile, piercing, charging, cleaving, concussion, slashing, stabbing, and smiting (two-handed).
Artefacts are the most powerful weapons. However, there is only one copy of each and they are hard to get hold of. If you do get an artefact that's of your type of weaponry, it's probably better than anything else you've got.
