    Which Weapon Class are You Most Excited For?

    Post by SadPanda on Sat Jun 22, 2013 1:59 am

    Personally for me, all of the great weapons are really going to be awesome to see. Runner-up would probably be whips and fists, they were so bland in Dark Souls, and I'm looking forward to what they do with them.

    Agreed

    I'd also like to see what they do with smaller weapons like daggers and shortswords with the new duel-wielding mechanic. Or my favorite weapon class...katanas!

    Polearms / Halberds. I've ALWAYS used them on my playthrough. Even Demons Souls.

    Oh, and even better, I wonder what dual wielding polearms would do...

    I hope katanas go back to a more Demon's Souls-esque style. They seemed a lot more fluid and dexterous.

    I prefer the current vertical slashing myself.

    The Demon's Katanas were just longer straightswords with bleed, more stamina drain (to the user), and an arguably better or worse 2h R2's depending on the situation.

    I think halberds should be heavily reinforced as the "great" class of the polearms. Heavier damage but slower speed.

    I'm only talking about the look on this one. They felt more like katanas. Although the current katanas are more practical, I think horizontal slashes are what katanas should mainly focus on.

    IMO, just by looking at a Katana you can tell it was built for vertical slashing. Either way, I think the rolling R1 as well as the Iaito's R2 and Chaos Blade's 1h R2 make up for the horizontal slashes twice over since the are already pretty powerful.

    Yeah, that makes sense. Instead of just all of them being considered 'Halberds', I'd like a staff type of weapon that is still considerable long, but weak and fast.

    Axes.

    The Axes in Demons' were SOOOOO much better, the movesets for them in Dark is such a disappointment.

    Bow down to the Axeman.

    If they can do something interesting with them then I'll say fists. DBF and God Hand were decent starts, but they still didn't do enough. I'd like to see it be a genuine fighting style instead of just the brawler kind of deal we have now.

    Runner up for me would probably then be Great Clubs/Swords/Axes. Only because dual-wielding is supposed to be a bigger deal and I wanna clobber faces with dual DGAs pony13

    I predict that not all weapons will be able to be dual-wielded.  And the ones that can't will just go back to the dark souls 1 version of dual wielding.

    I wanna see daggers

    I wanna see the special weapons, no matter what their class. Would be cool to have a weapon that extends when it swings.

    Dual-wielding a katana and a shorter version of it for the offhand would be nice.
