I feel like they’re kinda pointless. I really enjoy using one-handed sword and even though it’ll be hypocritical for me to say it’s probably my best melee weapon, I think it’s good in the wrong way. It’s all about that 3rd light attack that makes it so good but I find myself more often spamming light than trying to do a heavy + heavy + light combo on armored. It takes a little more attention to do and what I really want to do is get to my 3rd attack faster and overall I think my attention is better spent trying to spam out light attack headshots than the wind up the charge attacks since I also feel that charge attacks waste a lot of attack speed (why don’t charge attacks just initiate at minimum charge for most weapons anyway???) .
What I was thinking is maybe give one handed a charge attack flurry of blows that drains stamina per second but allows for more powerful and faster attacks to be made while you hold down the button. I really wanna consider more traits than swift slaying across the board for all non-shield weapons but I can’t justify it. If anyone has a different experience, I play twitch mode legend regularly which I consider a fun comfortable place to play (which gives the highest possible rewards). I don’t have a ton of cata experience but I’ve beaten all the helmgard missions on cata and regular legend is a walk in the park, just so you know where my perspective lies.
