Thanks for tuning in, thats all what i have to say.
Executioner Sword was fine, and made to beheading. Why it was nerfed by reducing its dmg by half? You need to open your guard and risk charging a 2 second hit to behead stormvermin with a fragile damage dealer character. This makes no sense, and must have been some error.
Are there any other weapons viable? No just halberd now, but don’t nerf halberd completely. Remove the double overhead combo from push>stab>lmb ( by removing lmb ) and add Armor penetration to 2nd swing in light and heavy halberd attack because it makes sense when you point a pike at enemy.
2 Hander sword, I feel like it could use some more power on charged attack to armoured enemies and very slight attack speed bonus. Its not a entirely bad weapon if you stack crit and crit power. But i have noticed 2hander sword has quite low attack reach radius . . . ? Increase it a bit maybe?
Sword n Shield, not satysfying to use, terrible cleave, terrible damage, lowest dodge. Basicaly you are burden to your team when you use it. Also charge attack animations does not match the 3rd person animations, its same shield-bash attack animations always. Maybe add a new unique alt attack, where you hold shield and you can strike with sword for the costs of stamina X bars. Or throw a shield to pick it up later, or throw away shield to use 1h sword variant of weapon. Would add a bit more flexibillity.
2hammer is kinda in the good spot, i enjoy using it but when you compare to halberd power level . . . why stagger enemies if you can kill them via halberd in same time . . . ? Its not even good armour pene weapon, halberd does it better, faster and stronger. And safer because charge attacks on 2hammer leave your guard open and you will ALWAYS take a hit or two during hordes no matter what.
Solution? Bring back pre-1.08 executioner power and focus on buffing weak arms of Kruber arsenal instead of nerfing everything. This is not how you make appealing melee game. Because atm even Krubers repeater can 2shot SV faster , safer than executioner that requires you to be in the melee range. I mean honestly, do developers even play their own game?
Apologies for my english, im a bit frustrated but i love this game. I don’t like the balance direction goes though.
