The damage formula for hammers is:

Axes use the Vitality damage formula. Damage depends on the weapon, the user's Strength and Vitality and character level. The characters' stats can vary. Vitality varies the most, by 30%, but Strength varies 10%. Basch has the lowest Vitality, which puts lower-stat characters like Balthier and Penelo in the top four for Strength+Vitality. The highest is Vaan, and Ashe at second highest, the only woman with second highest stats for a non-mage weapon.
