    Medieval Flails?

    Post by Johnthethird on Tue Jun 25, 2013 3:01 am

    Okay I know this has been brought up before, but I would really like to see flails in dark suols 2.

    I'm not talking about the traditional flails that you see in movies either. I'm talking about something like this



    here is a video showing fighting styles with the medieval flail

    I would like to see this.

    It would have to have a very unpredictable moveset though

    It's a good concept but it would be hard to do. Flails in general are unpredictable wen swung and has no specific moveset. They'd have to make an algorithm to predict the "flight path" so to speak. Not saying it can't happen just unlikely unless they make it like a mace or something

    It would be cool... although it may end up being like whips...
    good idea, not such a great weapon.

    I meant the concept.

    The idea of a Medieval Flail is cool, but it may not be that great.

    Just like the Whip. Cool idea, not a great weapon.

    I so want to see these weapons. But then the movesets would be interesting or not very useful in PvP. Though I can live with PvE only.

    A flail would have the same properties of a whip in a way.

    But still, would be great to see in game.

    I think it could work, it just needs the right moveset. It'd be like a heavier, more sluggish/damaging version of the whip, add bleed and it could be a pretty versatile weapon!
