    As the question asks, which melee weapon do you prefer and why? You are able to select two options for this poll so do pick one for farming and one for PVP.


    Thanks guys!

    Crit = spear

    Non crit = sword

    Sword is better for tanks and specs because it has a better average DPS. Spear is good for chars with high burst DPS skills and crit rate because it has a higher top end.

    Thank you for the detailed reply. I just want to ask a couple of questions from your reply.
    - Is it true that spears have slightly longer reach over other melee weapons?
    - Are there any in-game mechanics (like reach) with these two weapons that aren't so obvious to a less experienced player?

    I believe swords and spears both have the same range unless it has the prefix that increases it. (Type A or Type C weapon), and if there is a diff it isn't enough to be noticeable. So I would base your weapon choice off of your gameplay like DPS, tank, etc.

    I guess I was just hoping someone credible would say "SWORDS ARE MUCH BETTER THAN SPEARS YOU NOOB" basically because I've already set my mind on a sword regardless of the advice on high damage burst, high critters, and so on. I don't know. I just like the idea of having a reliable and stable DPS rather than bet on lotto hoping I can hit that jackpot max hit.

    A question just popped in my head after deciding which weapon to go for in each situation. Would adding an elemental talic (belief, sacred fire, etc.) to a weapon produce more damage over adding a keen talic? Like say one weapon with +4 keens vs the same weapon with +3 keens and +1 elemental talic?

    +3 Keen + Elemental is FAR better for exping on mobs who are weak to that element, but in every other situation the +4 keen would be better

    +4 keen would be far better in PVP

    That's true, but that means you need a type of elemental for each kind of mob you will farm. Since it changes depending on your level (ab, babas, callianas, lizards, ...), getting 4 different weapons is rather difficult haha

    Since you get no class skill from cross classing, Miller's hp boost gives it a huge over the other warrior classes. No point choosing another class if you cross class to warrior.

    Mace for Armsman
    Sword for miller
    Spear for Zerg..
    Easy..
    Mm. Uses Sword/Staf.. i heard wand been implyed? ..if not yet..
    They should add one hand. wands 1-60lv.. in shops. To maintan balance on magic clases.
    Anyway...
    Meh.. just..
    Sword more fun. Balance in lowest and highest dmg
    Spear has wider dmg range
    Mace has lowest wide of damage yet quality dmg.

    There is a 1 hand wand in game: nuke staff.
    However, it's cast ability was deactivated because it was to overpowered. For example imaging a bell with shield healing himself. Or debuffer / refresher and stuff like that.
