    knives are best for farming

    Greatswords best for pvp


    Great clubs great axes and polearms are too slow. The extra hits from a great sword due to speed out damages these weapons.

    Please buff the speeds

    I think in DFO greatclubs did more stamina damage - 30% of damage instead of 20% of damage.

    But tested that the other day and they did the same % of stamina damage?

    Do I remember incorrectly? Or was it changed?

    Either way, I don't think making every weapon the same is the answer, unless they roll Greatsword/Greataxe/Greatclub into a single "Two Hander" skill.

    Having everyone using the same weapons makes the difference based on player skill. This is an FPS. Not a tab select button mash.

    Even FPS games have a choice of weaponry with different strengths and weaknesses. And this isn't an FPS this is an MMORPG, or and MMORPGFPS. Or maybe MMOFPSRPG. Or MMORPGFPSOMGWTFBBQ

    Then why not just take all other weapons out of the game? Being able to adapt your strategy on the fly to match the strengths of different weapons sounds like it takes more skill than everyone using the exact same playstyle.

    The issue is greatswords is still the most used in pvp because it's the fasted 2h with long reach and the speed allows for an extra hit or two which means more dps.

    If these 3 other weapons hit harder or sped up a bit than it would make them worth while but currently they aren't and the people that skilled them up has switched to greatswords and or knives.

    I agree not all weapons need to be the same like uw. But currently they are broken.

    It's the power attack that drains extra stamina, not regular attacks.
