So i was trying out some of the weapons post the game launch, and while a lot seems about the same on Kerillian´s it seems to be like her glaive was buffed.
It now hits more targets on it’s swings.
When i noticed this i immediately thought of the Wardancer blade, a weapon that has had a longstanding reputation of being pretty useless or bugged so i went to check it to see if anythings different.
And while the bugs seem to be gone i came to realize that it’s pretty similar to the glaive…except it lacks the anti armor and anti shield capabilities
They both have wide sideways swings that clear out weaker mobs but glaive has the hands down best heavy attacks for taking anything that isn’t a boss down, even chaos warriors drop quickly.
And while it lacks the ability to really handle dense hordes of enemies, so does the Wardancer blade, i could not perceive a difference in dealing with hordes using either weapon.
But Glaive is just so much stronger against everything else.
So my feedback is that the Wardancer blade is performing very poorly, it doesn’t have any particular niche or job it fills nor is there any merit in picking it.
Despite being a sword with wide swings the Spear and bows are all better options for a larger number of enemies, and the heavy attack loses out against Glaive´s.
So i suggest that the weapon needs buffs to give it a niche, be it blocking for a frontline, wider and more cleaving swings or just more damage overall.
Currently the weapon has no merits which is a shame for something that looks so nice x)
