Now that all weapon classes are done, we're going to keep an eye on things for a couple weeks. Then we'll probably do a round of smaller tweaks. As always, feedback is welcome.

As a reminder, you can find the complete stats in this public spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... edit#gid=0

We tweaked a few weapons:
  1. The black tasseled spear is now a red and gold tasseled spear
  2. The spiraling snakewood staff has had its OB increased
  3. The walking staff and sungwood walking staff have had their PB decreased, to create a clearer step up to the high end 1h staves (the walking staff is still a great re-eq option)
  4. The red and gold tasseled spear, intricate vine-carved staff, and spiraling snakewood staff now all load on smobs on %. I have forced them to load this first time, and leave it to you to discover where.
These tweaks should give some options in high end 2h combo spears and 1h staves. I don't expect the changes to displace the gold war spear and yew staff, but some characters may prefer the other options.

We've made a few tweaks based on early observations -- note these are mostly minor changes rather than major readjustments:
  1. Saw-toothed axe has had its damage very slightly reduced, from 4d10 (22.5 avg) to 6d6 (21 avg). 4d10 was not playing nicely with its 1.5-handed nature (5d10 was far too strong at 27 avg dmg for a non-rare weapon). It should still be an excellent combo choice.
  2. Clubs have had their OB slightly upped across the board. In a few cases weight has come slightly down, but in all cases this is a buff to clubs.
  3. The binnol has had its OB slightly upped.
  4. Combo flails have been adjusted to bring their OB and bash up, but reduce their damage. This should make them more effective combo weapons for bashing, but inferior in 1v1 scenarios versus other combo choices due to the lower damage. The bronze chain scythe and dark barbed flail are also now 1.5-handed.
  5. Most of the high-end combo long blades and medium blades have been made 1.5-handed, as well as the knife-bladed axe (the crimson axe, due to its very high base damage, has not changed and is still 1-handed only). This brings back a bit of their old school identity.
  6. The high-end, non-craftable combo polearms have been slightly buffed to make them more attractive, since they were markedly inferior to other combo choices. 1h combo weapons are still better, but these should be more usable now.

All the weapon stats in the spreadsheet have been updated to reflect these:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... edit#gid=0

We are also keeping a close eye on the removal of dodge abs%, especially in light of the 1.5h changes.

We decided to pull the trigger on restoring the abs% to base dodge pieces: we felt like dodgers were exploding just slightly more quickly than we want them to. This will be live on in-game pieces as of renting, or reboot tonight.

High end combo polearms were slightly upped to make them more competitive with spears.
