Maul or Sword 2H ? No CP Builds

As title says. Penetration or Raw Damage?

I have seen people generally say that the math favors Maul. But my concern is against shields, where i do not think the penetration comes into play, since shields do not have resistance and are not critable. So my own common sense is saying Sword for overall performance, and Maul for good performance against heavy resistance builds but poor performance against low resist / shielded targets.

Also, considering i play no-cp, i think that favors Sword, since people will generally have less resistance without CP.

What would you recommend?

    If you have a maelstrom Maul, then Maul.

    If not, then sword. Axe only if you have a DoT build
    Sarcasm is something too serious to be taken lightly

    I was born with the wrong sign
    In the wrong house
    With the wrong ascendancy
    I took the wrong road
    That led to the wrong tendencies
    I was in the wrong place at the wrong time
    For the wrong reason and the wrong rhyme
    On the wrong day of the wrong week
    Used the wrong method with the wrong technique
