So i really like two handed axes, and would love for them to be in the game. But when I get around to thinking about it: Other than having a different move set what could axes bring to the pvp of Conan in a unique impactful way?
Hammers are the Damage Meta, with 25% plus armor pen on average, and have armor debuff.
Swords have the higher Damage average but only having around 8-12 armor pen. with Cripple
And Spears, have the range, and the most consistent damage output, with Bleed.
So what would axes bring? hopefully it would have a very good pvp move set with bait and switch, charge etc. But what else would it do?
Could it have higher strength scaling? could it bring a new and fresh combat debuff to the game? (what would that be?)
What are some of your ideas?
Ideas so far:
Have higher strength scaling (could have naturally low base damage)
slightly higher armor pen then Sword
Faster short range lightattacks, long sweeping/arcing heavys
running attack animations,
Does Stamina damage, and:
Applies a debuff that:
reduces max stamina,
or slows stamina recovery.
or makes rolls and such cost more stamina.
