Thread: Weapon types and mstrike

  1. Default Weapon types and mstrike

    Hallo everyone I have a choice between two weapons with the exact same accoutrements but of two different types. One is a longsword and the other a handaxe.

    Iím trying to figure out which is better in the long run? I know handaxes have better DFs but then again longswords have faster mstrike capabilities and shorter recovery times? They also have all three attack types and faster two weapon rt?

    Not sure whatís going on, although, everyone just uses handaxes from what I can tell. Insights?

    Handaxe is better

    I say longsword.

    The DFís are overrated. For instance, say on average youíre doing 200 endrolls consistently. That means the longsword will be superior on cloth/skin and leather but inferior on scale/chain/plate but by 4~6 raw damage. Most of the time not enough to bump you up a crit rank.

    On the otherhand, youíre getting faster ambush and mstrike RT and mstrike recovery and slight 10% stam reduction. You will never be able to hit that 5 sec mstrike RT especially with a slower race but you can with a bit of enhancives on a longsword (or no enhancives on a halfling). That 1 sec RT is massive as Etsild loved to cry about during the wizard/haste fiasco.

    Anyhow, apparently, there is a long-term project in the works by a few GMs on revamping the weapon tables... so basically pick your weapon (if in the same category) by RP rather than mechanics. Unless youíre going for something completely useless like ball and chain.
