Sidearms or weapons' sets for Warrior class.
« on: June 24, 2012, 02:06:20 PM »
Now that we're spoiled with quickslots for spellbooks (Wizard) and different
quivers (Ranger), playing the Warrior feels a little bland and unwieldy. Other
classes can quickly react to situation by using recquired spell or arrow without
changing the default equipped one.

I love how Axes hit multiple targets and how Halberds can hit 2 targtes in a
narrow corridor, but I don't want to be forced to waste a lot of time (attack
speed of 200%) to smack a single target, especially if it can use special abilities
and for example get 2 chances to poison me or summon another creature in
the meantime.

What I'd like to see is an ability to use weapons from quickslot or fast-swap
weapons in a simmilar way.

I know it'll be a little problematic with shield vs two-handed weapons but the
game could simply ignore currently equipped shield when needed, without
removing it.

Being a warrior and hence, having skills with all types of weapons and armor, I would think our warrior should posses some sort of quick-swap ability.  I was also thinking that maybe giving him a charge ability or a charged attack too.  Charge ability would allow him to take a running start at the baddies and mow them down and the charged attack would sacrifice attack rounds for a higher attack strength something like that? 

It's going to be a balancing act trying to even out all of the classes from here on out lets face it. 
When in doubt.  Scroll of Recall

Hmm, yeah, it is not uncommon in other games to find an alternate weapon set/slot that you can swap to quickly. Dungeon Crawl has this, so does Torchlight. It should be fairly easy to add this.
