I recently installed the Armory mod and took a look at weapon stats.
Some weapons are really simple to understand & use like the Executioner Sword where you spam Light attacks to fight hordes and you spam Heavy attacks to fight powerful enemies.
And the Push Attack is often useful and powerful though costs stamina.
But some weapons got really mixed up Light and Heavy attack patterns that i dont understand how to use.
For example the Tuskgor Spear has two single target light attacks then a cleaving attack then again a single target attack in its light chain.
The dwarf Hammer first has two cleaving attacks and then two single target attacks as his light attack chain.
And the elf Sword has two cleaving attacks and then one single target attack as her light attack chain.
Siennas Flaming Flail light attack chain has two cleaving attacks then two single target strong attacks.
So what is the point in having these weird mixed attack type chains?
If i need a tuskgor spear light cleaving attack i most certainly cant spend time on first doing two pointless single target attacks just to reach that third attack that has cleaving.
And if i need some quick single target attacks with my dwarven Hammer i certainly cant waste time first doing two cleaving attacks before i get to the 3rd and 4th attack which are single target armor piercing.
And as Sienna if i need some armor piercing damage from my Flaming Flain i certainly wont be spending time first doing two weak cleaving light attacks just to reach that 3rd and 4th light attack that has some armor piercing.
