>He doesn't main spears in games when its a option
Why use spears when I can just feel your bones splintering under my fists?
spears are for peasants
Because swords are the royalty of weaponry. They were not based on tools, not modified from hunting equipment, they were the first weapons designed purely to kill other human beings.
> they were the first weapons designed purely to kill other human beings
Pretty sure the first swords were just longer daggers, which were designed to skin and cut shit.
>not the superior Halberd
Because hitting up does shit with usefulness and Speed > range here
>Not using bows
Its almost like you want to get yourself killed
>not using a regular ol' hand axe whenever possible
>tfw no Stormlight Archive game
You will never be a badass surgebinder with a spear.
I loved spears so much as a kid, that I almost paid money to use them in Runescape. My shit was always bullpups and spears for some reason. Now it's all about Magic and supressors
I don't think you understand the concept of a HAND axe
The concept is that you can use shield too dummy
I prefer large sword like claymores. Normal swords are boring and mainstream. I never liked axes, I don't even know why, maybe is because of their appearance?
Spears are cool as long you can do MORE stuff than stabbing.
Hammers/maces are rad as fuck, smashing organs and bones must be satisfing, but SLICING MONSTAHRS IN HALF with giant swords is way more exciting.
Bows are dumb and weak, weapon for pussies.
Katanas are stupid.
I dislike how they feel most of the time along with the narrow "hitbox" for lack of a better word. I like weapons that feel more meaty when they strike a target, my go-to weapons are usually swords with axes in second mostly depending on the game.
My real main "weapon" though is usually magic. I fucking love throwing around explosions, summoning undead and just general fun utility spells some games have. I also really enjoy huge AoE attacks which is usually where magic shines.
You are really pushing me over the fucking edge anon.
A hand axe is an axe you can use with 1 hand, how do you think people with swords use shields?
An axe can be used to chop down trees.
A hammer can be used to build and craft.
A spear and a bow can be used to hunt.
A sword has but one purpose. You already know what it is.
I think she's a bitch.
But only because of retarded shit like
>straight swords with only slashing movements
>mallets that look like sledgehammers
>greatswords with extremely sluggish animations
Sometimes even the spear has retarded slashing animations so i cant use even that.
>Swordstaff will never be an option
I don't understand why a sword on a stick would be completely non-existent in games despite swords seemingly being the most popular
Dark souls as much as I think it's meh they do spears well
High Dex and STR does high damage and fast
>I was a different guy by the way
hand axe has shit range when someone comes near they get REKT or you do why waste time and double your chance to win
>not maining katana
Enjoy getting your precious weapon cut in half by superior steel
Spear is the superior weapon, i ALWAYS go with it if it's possible.
The master race of gaming is spear + crossbow.
A hand axe leaves you alot more exposed when you strike, but it won't break in 1 hit like a sword.
>Wanting to die
Get out of here emo faggot
I love using spears, but in M&B they are juuuust soooo slooooow. Swords are often the best balance between speed and power in video games.
Spears/Lances are the highest tier weapon though.
Of course I forget to post my fucking image.
You swing one and it get blocked with shield and then you get stabbed with out a shield of your own (duel wielding is dumb)
2 handed get #REKT machine they block they topple over and might as well be dead now best with a light sub weapon like a knife or hand axe
>implying cuteness isn't 100x more important the fighting capability
If I want to win battles I just have Marcus steamroll everything. But Marcus is not a god-tier qtpi like Lyndis
>Not maining teeth and claws
Explosives and fire get a close second place.
I do. I always use to be a sword fag as a kid but as I grew up I sort of fell in love with the spear. The reach, the aesthetic, and its roll in most ancient/mediaeval armies. Easy to produce. Easy to use.
I remember how happy I was in bastion that I could rock a spear/revolver combo.
why would you do that
>Not cosplaying the reaper whenever possible
>no rise of the argonauts
I like a woman with a Naginata.
But that halves your handaxe output.
With two axes nothing will ever dare enter your physical proximity, because if it does it'll be greeted by a handaxe. And then by a second handaxe. No one wants that.
>I didn't know about this thing so you have downs
>battle axes are the same as woodcutting axes
>hunting spears/bows are the same as purpose-built war spears/bows
>Warhammers are the same as various types of tool hammer
You my nigger.
>That's not Sigurd.
He's the most regal and lordest lord.
>using anything but your bare fists
WHAT ARE YOU, MEN OR WENCHES? USE YOUR FISTS GODDAMMIT. AXES? NOT EVEN USEFUL TO CHOP WOOD! YOU SHOULD KICK DOWN TREES WITH YOUR BARE HANDS
SWORDS? YEAH, GOOD FOR SHAVING, BUT TRUE MEN DON'T SHAVE!
> not cleaving your enemies apart using sheer weight of your sword
It doesn't even need a blade, really.
>not maining FISTS
EVEN WHEN IT'S NOT MEANT TO BE AN OPTION, I'LL MAIN FISTS
Because the combos are non existent unless you want to flail it around like a dumb faggot and exposing it to being cut in half and being cut yourself.
Go great or don't go at all, faggot.
>mad cus halberd trashes your favorite weapon in every way
Geitz has rarely failed me.
Dorcas and Bartre, on the other hand, have been fucking awful several times.
But that's just my opinion.
Let's not forget the downright broken Tyrfing.
Somehow Celice never quite managed to be as good as his old man.
All these hand faggots
>Not fighting like a real man
Real men don't handicap themselves for MUH honor
If your naked maybe, but in armor you could easily sidestep it to just be a glancing blow, and close the distance making them nigh powerless. A spearman only gets one good shot against a person with a handaxe.
Always try to use spears or clubs whenever possible, even if they arent as viable as other weapons.
Or he could just, you know, pull his spear back. Not as efficient but still usable.
Spears aren't as slow as you think. Plus a smart spear-wielder will have a dagger in his back hand.
>not smashing in niggers heads with a grain flail
first i'm gonna beat this grain, then i'm gonna beat in yer fukin head
Don't mind me, just boarding your ships.
Not maining inflatable globe
>Range based on STR for once
>Damage is STR + DEX
>Highest skill ceiling
Its like you all like to suck average weapon dick
The knife started out as a tool to skin boars. A sword is just a knife that's trying too hard.
You know that if you chop twice as many heads at the same time that you won't die, right? Because everyone who's a thread was beheaded.
>Not using a Greatsword or Ultra Greatsword
>there are people that DONT use maces whenever possible
>YOU SHOULD KICK DOWN TREES WITH YOUR BARE HANDS
how do I kick with hands?
also hammer master race.
Ah yes, glorious japan.
The country that could forge a sword from what was essentially dirt that could then pretend to be as good as its counterparts elsewhere in modern culture.
>Slow as fuck
>Party-killing brat uses it
CuChulainn had a spear and you know what happened

Tell me why you don't wield spears now

What the fuck, nigga, get your shit right.
> video game character is a weeb sperglord who looks like he's just out of some yaoi manga
> while there is a fucking IRISH WARRIOR in furs and badass helmet
I'd like me some folklore in this case, especially if it's basically the same character.
Why is there no Cúchulainn video game he has enough to work with.
Awesome spear hack and slash with berserk mode that makes it impossible to tell friend and foe apart
>not picking something that allows for defense and mobility on top of offensive capability
It's like you all wants dicks in your butts.
I was Iterating that the Fume UGS weighs about 9-14 KG depending on how you interpret the weight system (using a Longsword for baseline at 3 units and 28 unit FUGS).
And a zweihaender might weigh between 2-4 KG I think.
Anon would, at most, be able to lift the sword, then drop it down again and hope to hit something that wasn't his foot, especially given the size of the thing.
You might be able to "swing" it.
Not very well and certainly not for a long time,
You might be able to lift a weight like that but I doubt you can properly swing a 2+ meter sword that weighs that much without getting stabbed like a bitch right after.
I do lifting for my Job I life unwieldy stuff al the time from 5 to 20KG for 7 hours a day 5 days a week
I could swing it for as long as a damn well please
Lifting and swinging things are two entirely different things.
You need to keep in mind that in addition to even swinging the damn thing you need to also be on the move, be able to guard against counterattacks and be able to resume swinging in an efficient manner following your first swing.
On top of that a stupid sword like that would not be very good for someone in a battle.
A big reason for this is because you wouldn't really be able to do anything with it OUTSIDE of battle ironically enough.
It is totally impractical to transport and that is already pretty damning as to its usefullness as a weapon.
There is ultimately a reason why swords and other similiar battlefield weaponry tended to not go over 4-5 KG.
But then again they were all malnourished peasants so what do they know?
I mained spears in FFXIVARR, then I found out the Dragoon dps rotation is absolutely bugfuck retarded and the designers haven't said word one on adding Templars to the game as a second Lancer job.
