Kruber’s Halberd is really the best viable option as far has wave clear and armored mobs.
I play Foot Knight for utility and I really would like to play the sword and board class fantasy of the FK. Unfortunately, the shield breaking and versitility of the Halberd is too efficient to pass up.
I’ve read that Ex-Sword and 2H Hammer are alternatives, and by now, the drawbacks have been pointed out, but let’s recap:
Ex-Sword: Ghost swings. Enough said.
2H Hammer: Attack speed is the major drawback of this weapon. Halberd LMB spam is more efficient (vs waves/vs armored).
Anyways… I personally think that the shield/mace combo should be as efficient as the shield/axe combo while playing Iron Breaker, to fulfill the class fantasy.
EDIT: What do you think?
EDIT 2: This is NOT a Nerf thread. I REPEAT, THIS IS NOT A NERF THREAD.
