I’ve been trying to change it up with career and weapon builds and have recently been using the elf 2h sword. I really like the weapon but have found it struggles against armor unless you can land consistent headshots. Even then it doesn’t really perform all that well. Part of this is because the stab has a weird hit reg box that can at times be inconsistent. So I got to thinking, what if the sword had another heavy attack in its combo set? Something like a downward sweep at a 30 degree angle from the top that still focuses on single target damage, like the stab. It would chain better with combos (say a push attack chained into a heavy uses the heavy 2 to perform a downward strike) and make headshots more consistent in big groups where you’re trying to single out that armored elite. I’m not saying make it executioner level in terms of armor killing, but make it flow better and have more oomph. I think this would improve the weapon tremendously and make it more in line with what I imagine it to be since 2h swords are used by the likes of sword masters and harganeth executioners. (Maybe give the elf an exe sword in the future? ) It would not only buff the weapon in my eyes, but make it not need a direct damage buff. It already performs well against infantry and berserkers it just needs that something extra to help with armor that avoids making it a jack of all trades like the glaive used to be.
I’d like to hear what others think about it and improvements that can be made to the weapon.
