so any awesome weapon added to level the playing field for agility Clerics and Warriors would over-power the Rouge. So maybe some type of class specific agility weapon for Clerics (e.g. A holy dagger?) and warriors (e.g. A short sword of speed).
Yeah, something ELSE would be the keyword, rather than something better. More of a variety request than a buff request here
But then, I've felt that despite the lack of equipment variety, agi clerics still are a lot stronger than 1hand clerics. <2 duel, 12 AM, 5 heavyhand, and the 5% stun / extra damage from crisader> pretty much says to the cleric class "thou shalt hit fast", once the player has enough skillpoints to max the warrior's guild related advanced skills.
Warriors have a choice, as hand weapons offer a defensive trait no other weapon does (infantry training), and agi actually outperforms 2h, at least in bossfights, and grant more equipment variety, not to mention how since whirlwind and charge scale on weapon damage, becomes a totally different playstyle that makes things more interesting.
By 14- ish, ancient fang outperforms paladin's longsword so much that the go-to route naturally seems to be.. raise cleric as str until you get ancient fang + level 12ish, then reset stats, respect to agi:/
I don't like how a platemail wearing character holds a puny dagger and a shield, so i've tried multiple builds, each to no avail..
I feel that this "fixation on daggers" will always stay as is, unless there is some way to compensate bigger weapon damage, like warrior / rogue skills do.
Maybe if SF scaled on weapon damage, or crusader provided guaranteed crits every N seconds..
Any addition to the single weapon dagger arsenal,
and any way to incentivize clerics to build stronger damage per hit, rather than damage per second facilitated by high weapon speed would be amazing.
