    What 'mistake' ? That a 2h PIERCING weapon uses the PIERCING animation ?

    Wrong person.

    It’s not a mistake.

    Weird, I was quoting the original post, how did I get the wrong name?
    And no, as I said, it's not a mistake.

    I think it’s a good issue to fix. Animations and visuals are vital for a quality user experience. Sound effects would be on this list, but this is a game where people haven’t played with sound on in 20+ years.

    They’d make so big money off selling some new attack animations, dances, emotes, and spell casting animations/effects.

    ... that changing the APPEARANCE of the weapon doesn't also change the APPEARANCE of the attack animation. You don't want it that way, that's cool, agree to disagree.

    OP was pretty clear. I don't get the obfuscation here.

    I think it would be cool if weapon ornaments changed the animation of your attack to match the ornament.

    Knights have been using 2-hand slashing since the game's inception. The epics for both Paladins and SKs are 2H slash. High Elf/Half Elf Paladins also had the mini-epic, Natures Defender during SoV and then there was the highly sought-after he Sword of Ssraeshza during SoL. We've also had an array of 2H pierce and blunt. All three would seem to be in-class.

    I've always thought it would be cool if knights got a "Joust" AA, where you had to be mounted and equipped with a 2h piercer, and did some large amount of damage. Nothing game changing, but it'd be neat.

    Piercing is very knightly. The 2h just needs to be longer. it's basically 75% the the length of normal 2hp
  16. Zarkdon Augur

    The mighty hand and half sword is the only fitting 2 handed weapon for a glorious paladin, or foul SK. All you get with a lance is a stuck up enemy.

    Literally Lances...

    A 2hp damage or accuracy mod tied to the mount buff seems like an easy add

    Edit
    Or a proc buff with unlimited counters like righteous indignation that drops when you dismount

    Just get rid of 2HP. The animations are awful, the graphics are ugly, just looks weird. It would look good as a lance on a horse, not standing a few feet from a mob with the thing. Always hated 2HP, either redo it or remove it. .
  20. Act of Valor The Newest Member

    yes lets remove an entire weapon class because you hate it
