Buff Longsword already, Jesus Christ



  • This thing has the most Godly, fluid animations (or used to, but that’s another thread for another day) it just functions like excalibur it’s soooooo good, but SOOOOOOOOOO BAD! Please just buff the overhead 83 and make stab do 62 so it can reliably two hit vannies, and 3 shot knight if one overhead is to the head.

    The most suggested way to buff the longsword is impossible, without completely changing the way special damage works.

    While we’re at it, nerf messer so it doesn’t one shot mannies, reduce slash to 90.



  • If they did those buffs, why use SoW?



  • @Toll:

    Because of the speed? Longsword doesn’t exactly play the same sir, also longsword would be heavy on overheads sow on stab. No other way to buff it, but it’s useless right now sooo



  • Seems to me with those buffs, whilst being a bit slower on the stab the versatility of it would outstrip the SoW. The 2 stab kill vanguard is the ducks nuts of the SoW.

    IMO make the longsword slash stronger so it’s damage is the same as stab and overhead. That way any two hits + quick kick will kill a vanguard, and its lmb head shot on an archer will 1 shot them. The abilty to 1 shot archers puts it on the same level as messer vs archers and having the ability to 2 hit + quick kick a vanguard makes it pretty versatile. If only you could make it 1 shot MAA’s with head hit but not 2 hit kill vanguard then it would be perfect.



  • At the moment, 2h SoW completely outclasses 2h LS. And messer is the best of all the bastard swords. LS needs some love.

    Yes but not too much love. Otherwise the long sowed will just outclass the SOW in every way.

    Agreed, very minor buffs needed. It is an overall solid weapon and should be the perfect example of balance given the incredibly smooth animations.



  • So buff its LMB damage as above, I think that would bring it inline with the rest of the Knights swords and plenty of loving will be had by all. Except archers.





  • Another diversion to distract TB from the other op classes. The Knight and his swords are quite ok thanks.
    were do these plebbypeonpeasants get so stupid. OP is a donkeys ass and should stick to waffle about piffle
    in off topic.



  • Do not allow the LS to 2-shot vanguards. SoW would be completely useless.



  • Bring back unstoppable monster knight meta.



  • @dudeface:

    Bring back unstoppable monster knight meta.

    Don’t worry, even if GS does get nerfed, it will only bring a new era of extreme weapon meta.

    Fork will rule all.



  • longsword is great huggs, that’s what i used against you guys last scrim, works great lol

    but… i would not at all be against the old longsword :D



  • What if LS could reliably 3-shot knights and 3-shot vangs? Then it’d be on par with SOW, but remain as an all-rounder sword, while SOW excels at killing vanguards.


  • Mod

    Dubaxe two shots vanguards as well. Don’t make dubaxe look worse. Nah fuck it. Buff the longsword. Revert it back to vanilla. It used to be a beast when I was a noob.

    Aww but it’s just so much fun to one shot decap those annoying little pests :p

    Ummm Longsword does need a buff, there is no strategic advantage to using it over the sow or messer, other than the fact that it feels natural and legit.

    Kiddy loin should stick to being a somewhat rational dude who is nice in off topic, rather than trying to balance a game he knows nothing about. Thanks plebby
