Talking about utilizing weapons, I found a place for almost every elf weapon.
The only weapon I cant really even think of a use is Dual Swords.
They are tagged for “crowd control”, but so far their attack pattern makes it almost impossible for me at least utilize them this way. Whichever position you got, which ever angle you look, it still will miss hit here and there occasionally. Even tho if you look video on dicreased speed you will actually notice that sword goes through target, it damn close range, but still misses somehow.
Well, thats all that this weapon can do. Fast attack and wide sweeps. This is bull****.
Compared to other’s non “crowd control” or “wide speeps” or both weapons, it loses so much hits, and have no real other bonuses. Yes, its hits more targets than daggers, sure. But glaive, spear block stab, 2h sword have their crowd control reliable AND have other features.
And charged attack is awful. How happened top->bot heavy strike stands first for crowd control weapon with so low armor penetration, non “versatile” and not “head shot damage” instead of straight flat swipe which there should be?
To make this weapon useful/worth, devs should probably increase their reach angle from 90* to 110* at least, and balance their attack pattern somehow so weapon tagged for “wide sweeps” and “crowd control” would not be ashamed for not hitting targets and not really controlling anything.
Or there is another way. Cause elf already got better crowd control weapons, make Dual Swords to ignore shields. At least at charged attacks. Makes sense to me, cause its kinda hard to block 2 hits at once coming from different sides with one shield.
Thanks for attention.
