The game has a distinct lack of sexy middle eastern weaponry, the only thing being the Falchion for Saltzy. Here is my idea for a nice scimitar for Kerillian.
Great at horde clear, lights are lots of diagonal slashing, heavies are slashes that are just reverse animations to the light attack combo (heavy 1 is opposite of light 1, heavy 2 opposite of light 2 etc.); allowing for interesting combos and mix-ups. I specifically want diagonal angles to make it harder to deal with elites (keep reading). Contrary to other weapons, the heavies aren’t that much slower than the lights; but they only deal slightly more damage than lights as well; this is a combo weapon. Causes a small bleed DoT on all attacks. Fast and combo oriented. Push attack can be a straight horizontal slash from right to left (the third person animation of this would have kerillian do a quick 360 spin slash while performing this move, but to not make the user sick or disoriented this would not happen in first person). Middle mouse button causes you to block for 1 second or so (a flashy spin your sword in front of you animation). If timed properly right before the enemy hits; their attack bounces off and you automatically perform an overhead riposte attack (kerillian grips the sword with both hands and brings it straight down full force, just like her heavy one handed sword attack).The riposte causes all attacks to bounce off like a shield. Your stamina CAN be drained from the block, but it won’t stop the riposte from coming out. This attack would be the only way to deal with elites to balance out it’s strong horde clear; BUT the riposte attack cannot be canceled, so make sure you are dedicated to attacking before using it. High risk/high reward. I think i want it to only have 2 and 1/2 stamina shields; in order incetiivise (<–is that a word?) use of the weapon on Handmaiden specifically; as she gets a half stamina shield as part of her class. I’ll leave the damage numbers up to the devs; although it should be pretty comparable to Rapier IMO. A nice finesse weapon indeed.
Bonus points if Handmaiden can get a nice Turban that goes with her default veil.
