Weapons are one-handed or two-handed equitable damage dealing items. The one-handed weapons may be used with shields to increase the player's defensive capabilities, and two-handed weapons have much bigger damage dealing capabilities. Due to Age of Aincrad being a Melee-focused MMORPG, with the presence of magic and ranged weapons missing from the game, we are compensating them with a wide variety of melee weapons. Balanced - each weapon type will have it's own area of specialization and will also have an assortment of skills assigned to it.
Information on weapons[edit | edit source]
- Most skills will be focused on weapon usage.
- One-handed weapons will have different skills than two-handed weapons.
- Weapons will have skill level requirements, so a low level player won't be able to use a high level weapon.
- Weapon users will play a major role in every boss fight, as without their help players who are using only shields may be too weak to deal enough damage to a boss before they get killed.
