Sword of Crom nerf

Maces are definitely the top weapon for thralls. The only really benefit to a 2h sword are for killing other players or clearing out a camp to get zeal faster.

That’s it. Someone should test this but I bet this is where they are going with it. Players using it as a dodge counter attack weapon…and it’s not that difficult to imagine someone using it this way…now if that is the intent, they should have switched it from normal strength based to agility.

Well, it’s definitely not accidental, since it’s in the patch-notes

  • Ah Set, here we go again. Sword of Crom will no longer deal damage when equipped by thralls.

I guess I just don’t see the point of it

:point_up_2: This! It wasn’t over powered nor was anyone asking for it to be nerfed. It blind sided me and seems to have no point. :sob: :sob:

To be honest Ive not used legendary weapons in a really long time and now that weapons have had all their perks removed I see even less reason to use them. Its a shame really I would love to see legendary weapons get some love because they add a little bit of spice to the game.

From a lore perspective, it actually makes sense. @Croms_Faithful has emphasized the importance of Crom in the past. No lowly thrall should be able to effectively wield Crom’s sword. Only a true barbarian could be worthy.

Already covered in my response, just saying and I don’t know what the intent is but Agility 20 perk does provide a method for player use that isn’t crippling.

I swear to you no 2H sword can match my Gladius.
(100DMG + poison damage + low stamina consumption)

Agility 20 perk Rolling thrust: After dodging, your next damaging attack has 25% increase penetration and your next swing costs no stamina.

So you have a 91 base attack and 48% armor pen with no stamina drain in theory by simply rolling out of the way of an attack and counter attacking.

This does need to be vetted because the stamina drain isn’t normal and the perk may not stop the weapons magical drain but on paper…everything should work.

Talking about a thrall weapon here.

For my character I haven’t used legendary weapons in a ling time either, but I do equip Thralls with them since decay is not an issue.

Wouldn’t it only have concussive from the blunt fitting itself, and so it’d be really low, where Love Tap would seemingly be better?

It doesn’t help that Soc and Papyrus Blade have the same model, which lessens the value of SoC being a wall decoration.

THIS. It has always bugged me that legendaries share skins. I know I know. I want devs focused on other fun things to but I would like legendaries to be uniques but please note that I didn’t say I wanted legendaries eunuchs because apparently that is what happened to SoC :rofl: Couldn’t resist…sorry.

This nerf sucks just as much the Lifeblood Spear nerf. No, I take that back, it sucks even more, because at least I could understand the reason for the LBS nerf. I can see no reason to nerf the SoC. :angry:

Bloody brilliant! Still disagree with the nerf, but damn, this is genius. :smiley:

So, +12 Concussive, but still.
Lovetap would be 15/20 (27/32).

Unless the SoC has something special about it’s thrall usage.

Area of Effect. 12 con. damage to 5 NPCs vs 32 on one.
