Zooming out...

In reality, sharp weapons are better against unarmoured opponents and blunt against armoured. Some dispensation can be made for magical sharpness.

However, we're discussing this in a context where blunt weapons consist of the warhammer, the quarterstaff and the sceptre. The first is undoubtedly a battlefield blunt weapon. The other two are dubious - one was an effective poor man's weapon against the lightly armoured, the other not even a weapon and existing only in tiny numbers. They are also relatively ineffective in Sil.

Perhaps it's better to look at the weapons harder and consider what would make them make more sense. I am not sure crowns and sceptres should be anywhere near as common as they are, or even if they should exist at all. Quarterstaffs and staffs with magical effects also coexist oddly.
