Favorite Weapon!

Post by Terageld » Thu Jul 23, 2015 1:15 am

I did a search and can't believe that this topic didn't come up yet.
What is your favorite weapon in game? I prefer falchions and spiked chains for their intimidation factor and their deadly... deadliness.

Parrying spoon.

I suddenly feel kinda bad as I was the only one who listed a weapon designed for killing people.
But otherwise, I prefer the greatspork. It combines the dexterity of the parrying spoon and the weight of the fork of truth.

You can't just make up weapons Terageld, be reasonable.

Also, for the record, I am very much fond of Sword-Chucks. Or Swordchaku if you prefer.

I'm sort of partial to lobbing cockatrice eggs, but when it comes to business, I always choose the Vorpal Blade. Snicker-snack!

Thematically, I love the doublesword and hand crossbow- since they're both very obscure and neat weapons that don't get anywhere near the love they deserve.

By the numbers, I love the Spiked Chain and Bastard Sword (As most people do.) It's just too good of a weapon- and doesn't really have any major weaknesses aside from it's relative rarity and how unlikely you are to run into enchanted versions of it that you didn't make yourself.
This is the kind of thing that makes the Gods think we're fools.
