Weapon variant for factions



  • Hello, i fecking love chivalry and i love alot of the weapons, however sometimes i feel the look of some weapons do not fit the feel of 1 of the factions. ie the brutal and old style of the Dane axe fits the mason man at arms extremely well, however it does not match the feel of the agatha man at arms, being (presumably) well funded and civilized compaired to his mason counter part.
    or the sleek ornate halberd looks great on agatha vanguard but looks out of place on a poorer mason vanguard.

    so i suggest an ascetic variant for certain weapons.

    Norse sword (a viking era and out of date weapon) will still be the same for masons but for agatha they will have a sword of the same stats but another name and look i recommend the “Arming sword”

    Broadsword fits agatha perfectly but the masons should use a simpler but cooler looking oakeshott type xi.

    and the mason version of the mace should have a wooden handle like this http://www.thespecialistsltd.com/files/imagecache/product/files/Mace_FlangedSilver.jpg

    thats about all i got, but the idea is there. please let me know if it would, or why it wont work. or other weapon variant ideas



  • its how they did it in AOC



  • I* I* I* I* I* I* I* I* I*



  • Expect them to sell these weapon skins for $2 each.



  • @Monty:

    …oakeshott type xi.

    Ahh a true sword nerd :)

    I actually think the Norse sword (being primarily a stabbing weapon in the game) should look more like a type XVa:

    whereas a real norse sword is actually primarily a chopping and slashing weapon.

  • so like a bigger shortsword

    Weapons are weapons. Even barbarians used roman equipment back then.



  • SoW looks really weird on Mason Knights, the sword looks like the kind of sword an RPG hero would wield.

    Except the ingame norse sword is not really primarily stabbing weapon. The stab is almost identical to broadsword stab, only thing that is different about it is 0.05 second faster recovery.

    Norse has superior overhead and slash speed so it’s better at chopping and slashing. Broadsword is way better if you want to stab spam because it has more reach.

    So yeah, that model would be more fitting for broadsword because that’s the weapon people like to stab spam with.

    You can check the numbers here if you want to.

    would be a nice shortsword skin, but i want a warbow/dubaxe/longsword skin first.



  • this kind of Falchion for mason http://wulflund.com/img/goods/en/medium/sword–-falchion_2.jpg looks more brutal and mason-y
