Suggestion: Fists with Shield



  • I suggest making it possible to equip a shield in combination with fists. There doesn’t really seem to be a reason why this shouldn’t be possible - its like equipping any one- or one-and-a-half handed weapon… just without the weapon.

    The implementation would be rather easy, just press the button for fists again to toggle the shield - as with any other weapon.

    Since you can strike with either two hands or just one, fists fall into the category of 1 1/2 hand weapons. Thus it should be the same as with any other 1 1/2 hand weapon; when used with a shield, damage is reduced a bit but speed is increased.



  • I think the idea of fists is all offense, no defense. Half the fun is the fact you cannot block anything.



  • Why would you punch faster with one fist than two? :P



  • @SlyGoat:

    For the same reason you swing a sword faster with one hand in this game. It’s simply equality.

    Nobody wants that. Fists can stay how they are, shield would only be another option.



  • This doesn’t sound very appealing to me. A person who can punch you out and block swords? nooooo thanks. Fists are pretty strong even without a shield since they hit so fast they interrupt the next attack. Just use the hunting knife with a shield, most op wep in game ;)



  • You used to be able to do fist with shield. Although if you did a stab with it, you would go into the bugged T-pose…

    This would mean people would use shields in fist fights so I say no.



  • Just yesterday I had an encounter with a Vanguard spamming LMB fist. I almost died as knight using the falchion, because the damn fists are so damn fast. So I seriously say NO to this, especially since they could then block my falchion.



  • There are bad ideas… and then there is this idea… Do not want!
