Ran some tests with the Two Handed Sword last night to give it a run.
And I have to say its improved. And works well at least up to the Champion level , though still is not as good as the Halberd in Crowds. The Stagger on it is pretty good at that level. But it appears they didn’t add enough Reach to it. The Rapier still has more reach and the Falchion has the same reach. When testing on Dummies that was the first thing I noticed.
I did take it in to Champion level and it actually staggers Chaos Warriors, which is impressive. And it had good cleave there and was not stopped by Chaos Horde like before which was its problem was lack of Cleave on those. Heavy strikes though could stagger Berserkers and CWs… this gave it a serious advantage.
Unfortunately it loses that at the Legend Level and also has cleave problems at Legend level with Chaos hordes at least on the light strikes.
Its very close now to being a usable weapon. Its good up through Champion level now. Still not competetive with other weapons in Legend… but the changes did actually make it viable up through Champion now which it was not before.
I suspect it will still lose out to the Falchion and Halberd at Legend level as it loses everything it gained in Champion, and the reach still isn’t enough to “reach” the abilities of those weapons for Saltz/Kruber .
