    Choosing weapons?

    I know a few people relog until they get the weapons they want, and at least for Uruks, the sword seems to be favourite choice.

    If it were possibly to specifically choose a weapon somehow, what weapon would you choose to have (even if there currently is no model for it)?
    If you do not even try to communicate using clear and concise English, I will ignore you.

    You know, on my reaver, sometimes I will log on and off repeatedly so I can get the double swords. I just seem to like them alot :P The one that I can't stand is the massive cleaver sword

    I actually LOVE the huge cleaver. It's awesome. I like the axe as well.

    Re: Choosing weapons?

    We have a few WL on BW that will relog over and over again until they get the weapon they like, and a system to prechoose your setup would be a welcome addition. I know when I played, I liked the axe and shield, but I didn't play my WL too much though..

    I prefer the darker sword, maybe its morgul. I'd like a compound bow maybe with a skull mounted on it

    Yeah this would be great...Relogging over and over is a pain!!! I absolutely hate the cleavers on my reaver and I strongly dislike the axe.... Swords are the best!!

    I also love that cleaver when Im on my reaver. Its awesome to swing that into a freep's face.

    On my defiler, my favorite staff would be a really tough choice between the wooden one that has a helix pattern at the top and the metal one that looks almost like a long iron torch. I always seem to end up with that big goofy hunk of wood staff, though.

    I agree with the OP, good idea.

    Broadsword/Axe combo for my reaver.
    They should add weapon appearance traits like they have skins.

    I much prefer the silver longsword on my WL. I loathe the axe and dislike the black shorter sword.

    Re: Choosing weapons?

    The katana-like sword on the Uruks, or the other sword, by all means!

    I totally hate/loathe the stupid-looking small axe thing. I don't know why, but that is almost all I seem to be getting lately, like some dev's bad joke on players.

    The big swords when playing the reaver are cool!

    Some of the defiler staffs are cooler than others, but no complaints.


    Devs - Please get rid of the stupid-looking small axe thing!

    We want our charaters to look like cool, strong warriors, not like dorky slug meat chopping lackeys...

    Thank you!

    Re: Choosing weapons?

    If I could have spent all the time I spent relogging my reaver to get the twin straight silver swords fighting freeps, I would be rank 11.

    I'm not even kidding at all.

    LOL, too true.

    The hammer-axe thing is the worst, followed by the goofy spiked sword with axe offhand.

    Sometimes I'd settle for that smaller cleaver-sword thing as it has the ninja offhand, but the twin blades are the best. They do more damage too, it's true!

    Re: Choosing weapons?

    You ought to unlock further weapon appearances at higher ranks. A rank 13 reaver should be carrying a weapon that strikes fear into the tender hearts of the Free Peoples. On the other hand, greenies shouldn't really have access to those kinds of dread weapons until they've taken a few turns around the block.

    Perhaps they could be given be given butter knives, or thin branches, or maybe just big signs saying "Free Lunch."

    Re: Choosing weapons?

    Still getting (about 70-80% of the time) the pathetic, cruddy looking, graphic art school dropout's puny idea for a miniature axe on the warleader these days.
    It looks terrible (in the bad sense of the word).
    I guess no one passed the message on to the dev's to PLEASE get rid of the sorry-looking weapons.

    Maybe someone will fix this problem soon...

    Re: Choosing weapons?

    If I had to choose any weapon, I would have to choose a giant 4 hander axe (Is that even possible?) that I could somehow wield with one hand (Monstrous Uruk stength? ) and one-shot freeps with it. And even if I don't one-shot freeps, it'd be pretty awesome to have an axe that's that big. I mean heck, I could attack freeps with melee 5m/15feet away!

    Oh wait...you mean I can arleady attack freeps 5m away with my foot long axe/sword/whatever other weapon? Damn.
