I think spears are too awkward and don't have a large enough area that's actually doing damage. With a sword you have a lot of mobility and the whole blade to hurt someone with, whereas a spear only has the tip.

As far as blunt weapons go, I can see why someone would like them, some are pretty cool, but they just don't seem like effeciant weapons to me. I mean, how long does it take to beat someone down vs slashing them.

Although, I don't think you can just say swords, as there are a huge variety of them. Personally, I like katanas best. Good range, plenty of mobility, and a lot of cutting surface. Things like Fu Xi's sword and Xiahou Dun's sword I think are also to clumsy. Look at the way Fu Xi runs with his sword in DW3... he looks like he can barely hold it up much less fight with it. Anyone fighting him would just move out of the way...

I'm not a big fan of axes. Usually when you see them they're being wielded by some stupid barbarian. I know that axes can be very effective weapons, but seeing them used by these people so often kinda ruined them for me... it's weird.

I don't like rapiers or any sort of poking weapon. People say they take more skill, which they might, but I still think they're really stupid.

Flexible weapons I'm neutral on. Flails and the like are interesting, seem to work fine as weapons, but I wouldn't use one.

So, to sum it all up Zhou Tai and Lui Bei have the best weapons.

houdan, you kinda seem biased towards swords. With spears, all you have isn't just the tip. You can hit a person with the other end of the spear or hit them like a check in hockey. But I agree with the other stuff about the clumsyness of axes and giant swords. The blunt objects probably don't take that long to kill a person either. I mean, do you think that you could survive being hit in the head by a strong man with a baseball bat. :shock:

Spears are O.K. weapons, but a somewhat skilled swordsman could defend against just about any attack. Spears don't have much of an area to attack with either. You have the small little blade on front and some had a spike or a metal covering on the other end for quick thumps to your opponent. You probably wouldn't want to check someone with a spear since they are deadliest when in motion. Larger axes have the same problem. Let your opponent stop them just once and you are left wide open. Smaller axes don't have that problem, but they don't do as much damage. Houdan the reason you always see larger axes in the hands of "stupid barbarians" is because they are, most of the time, the only people strong enough to use the weapon effectively. Blunt weapons run along the same line as axes.

Tonfa's like Sun Ce's, although his are huge, are very nice weapons. Personally I really would like to see someone using a pair of Nunchaku as a weapon in this game! Of all the weapons I've been trained in those have been the most fun. :)

Lu Bu used a halberd, not a pike sweetie. But they are very similar. I like the Glaive, Lu Mengs in DW4, and Yue Ying's....war staff?

Look at Jiang Wei's SSST attack in DW3, he does it.
