    Default Why not spear???

    I want my Cleric and Warrior to use a "Spear and Shield" it would be so cool ... special if my Cleric had it (don't like 2h hammer)
    Fight Well & Die Happy ...

    Great idea, more variety is never a bad thing. That crossed my mind while on my cleric as well but at the same time I like using the big 2handed macees.


    Doesn't matter what you see, or into it what you read, you can do it your own way, if it's done just how I say.

    Was thinking the exact same thing. Saw Deadliest Warrior and the Knight used Halberds. Seeing how leathal they were I immediatly prefered them to alot of other avalible weapons
    Sometimes, the stuff on TV is that boring and crap that I feel like sitting ontop of it and watching the couch instead.

    I'd like to see more variation as well.

    Maybe a large spear with a small circular shield. More damage output with the spear than a blade, and less protection than a traditional shield, that'd seem to balance things out.

    What about a Retiarius setup? = Trident and a net, commonly used by gladiators in Rome.

    The net would be AWESOME for melee CC, something I've never seen before in an mmo.

    There are halbers (polearms) but only in 2h form.

    Not that it's really important here, but in recent history I think the best game to do weapons has been demon's souls. You can use every weapon 1h or 2h, with different styles depending on how you wield it. Pretty cool imo.

    there are polearms and scythes and spears and such, just doesnt seem to be any at lower lvls. I saw a few other 35's running around with some and some on vendors I couldn't buy yet

    You can buy polearms at low levels on the defiant side, but I never found a a decent weapon vendor (lvl 8-18) on the guardian side.

    I'd like to perhaps be able to use them similar to a spartan warrior as made famous in the movie 300. I am looking at Riftblade for a possible warrior build and seeing if it's possible to use polearms all the way up. I mean, they throw elemental spears, so why not have a regular spear as well.

    Scythes seem ideal for a healer, I vote for variety, I love mix and matching.
