    Weapons One of the things that became apparent early in the development of Guild Wars 2 was that we needed a diverse set of weapons to support our skill system. The full list of standard wieldable weapons in Guild Wars 2 is as follows:
    One-Handed: Axe, dagger, mace, pistol, scepter, and sword.
    Two-Handed: Greatsword, hammer, longbow, rifle, shortbow, and staff.
    Offhand only: Focus, shield, torch, and warhorn.

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.... no 2 handed battle axes.. thats it, im done... dont whanna play it anymore :(

    It's quite silly because I consider a 2h Axe far superior over a 1handed, it's both defensive and offensive. I think despite the unrealistic approach TERA takes the Berserker class is amazing with the Axe, most incredible combat I've seen in a MMO yet.

    And a halberd would've be cool too. Personally my favourite weapon to make an interesting to watch combat would be to see a Flail, it just looks so gruesome to kill someone with it, especially charging ahead on a horse.


    However the reason they hardly ever add flails to a game is the same reason they never add whip's or forget to add Bowstrings, it has a moving part in it which is the chain.

    This weapon would've been great as well:

    Not really a 2h battle axe (more like an axe on a stick) but I'd love to see halberds once...
    And more fun than just spears or something :D

    Btw Argaloss, your avatar is DW 1h axes too! :p

    Can I have your stuff?

    As long as there are big fuckoff 1h axes I'll be happy! (I'm prob going to play ranged most but would be good to have 2 1h axes as my melee set)

    I am in love with everything that uses scythes. Give expansion with a derv like class. Too be honest we will probobly see several weapon types added if they release classes like GW.

    Or indeed.... what about emei daggers ?

    They are double edges spikes fitted to a ring which you ware on your middle finger, allowing the blades to spin. Pretty amazing visual distraction weapon made by the Shaolin.

    Considering every *type of* weapon has it's own set of abilities in gw2 and another for underwater, I don't think we will see hundreds of diff weapon types, which is a shame I'll grant you.

    Edited to avoid confusion

    No, underwater you get different weapons like harpoon and trident with their own specific skill set...

    I love Dervishes also... and Scythes :) too bad they didn't make an early appearance in GW2.

    I would have liked Paragons also, with their spears.

    Ah, would make sense, I've only seen an engineer and elementalist underwater and their weapons remained the same just diff effects (engineers gun fired torps and the eles fire spells became steam and cooling lava balls)
    Was pretty damn cool.

    I'll try find the vids on YouTube later
