    Yes; there is a lot of holding weapons aloft whilst running, you’re right it is a bit daft.

    Nah bro, they all lift.

    Can’t see anyone really running around with no enemy sight holding weapons in the air, it’s a small rather unimportant animation tweak but it would IMO add to the realism of the game.

    Eh, maybe.



  • It is a small thing, but hey the art team needs stuff to do aswell ^^ and it would just look cool.



  • Yes. Yes it would.



  • I am actually suprised at how good the community is in this, I rarely dare to post on forums as it seems suggestions often gets flamed.

    Ahaha ^^. I just hope all the noobs who scream “HACKER” at me because I got a 10:0 score never find this forum…

    Anyways, I like the community as well :D

    There’s already a single bearded axe. The double axe is there mainly for flavor and because it was an iconic weapon in Age of Chivalry.

    He doesn’t mean the double axe, he means the two handed bearded axe. Two handed bearded axes just didn’t exist because they were mostly used for fighting with shields to catch and pull down your opponent’s shield. I think a good way to fix this would be to just switch the heads of the bearded axe and the dane axe, which was historically a two handed weapon.



  • I could not agree more with the sword on the shoulder when running (but not sprinting) and the change of grip for spears.
    The spears are held really weird, and both the overhead and thrust attacks have awkward grips.

    Actually i ment double bearded axes were never used in war ever by anyone. And so many games think it’s badass cool to have one in but all it really shows is that someone in the first place never looked into how an axe works. Double bearded axes have just not been used by soldiers in war, ever, atleast not proveable.



  • What do you mean by “bearded axe” then? There’s only one bearded axe and it’s got one head.

    How kind and diligent of you to notice and comment.

    It means how many blades there is on it. So a double bearded axe has 2 sides, and the only ones that are like that are lumber axes. But it’s a common thing to depict really huge double bearded axes in fantasy, I just brought it up because chivalry isn’t really a fantasy game, and double bearded axes is as logical as those over dimensioned japanese swords from final fantasy. They might be cool but they don’t make sense :P

    The problem here is that the bearded axe has a certain kind of blade, one that has a “beard”. Like this: http://www.adriaangerberknives.com/imag … rded_7.JPG

    The double axe isn’t a bearded axe at all, but the last two-handed axe is, hence the confusion.
