Fsim is needed but I'm almost sure a +9 plain broad axe is going to be significantly better than a +9 holy war axe against evil targets, at least at 0 and >=18 axes skill.

Re: Dith's shadow mimic doesn't seem to distract the enemy.

The shadow ranged or melee attack use a base type of weapon, probably with +0 enchantment and no consideration of player skill.

So it is very good with 2h and very bad with bad 1h.

Large rock or longbow/xbow shadow mimic is extremely good, for example
