In old days, before fractional blows, and maybe even before the current point character generation (autoroller, or old point based), having only one attack wasn't very uncommon for a low level ranger or paladin. Maul didn't exist back then, some other weapons had lower damage dice than they have now, and the (2d8) lance was the weapon which provided the biggest damage, if you were strong enough to use it. Myself, i prefered the (3d4) Katana for weight reasons.
