Yea, also with a staff you still have a more reach and can generate more power.

Also suposedly, you can do Mordhau grip without worrying about cutting yourself but i have only seen videos of people hitting stuff with a Mordhau grip, never trying to parry or spar with it. I'm guessing that parrying a big meaty weapon (something swords are already not good at) may become dangerous when handling the edge like that.
Again, that's just guessing i can't say for real how it would work.

All of this without even speaking about how hard it would be to actually exploit a gap in someone's armor when that someone is actually trained to fight in armor.

Parla italiano i guess

lol Whisper.
I woke up around two hours ago and i still can remember pretty vividly that i dreamed about about playing Mordhau, with a sling (DEVS PLS) but it felt like i was really in the game, as some sort of virtual reality thing.
Roshawn's wet dream.

Sellsword 3553 3388

Sellsword 3553 3388

Sellsword 3553 3388

Animations as a whole need some tweaking (Well duh, you dumb spic) but i will point out a few things about the qstaff and suggest something that may make the staff feel and look more unique.
First off, i will point out that in first person it's pretty hard to distinguish which grip you are using, at first at least. First time i spawned in game, i thought the default grip was half staving by how it looks while in fact is the quarter grip, was annoyed to have to change it everytime i spawned until i tried third person for a bit and i realised i was doing it backwards all along. So there is that, it should be improved.

Now onto the animations:
The half staving grip is a no brainer, you make it so attacks from each side are done with their respective ends of the quarterstaff (just like the lateral swings in chivalry). The thrust should remain being done with the "leading" end of the staff since it's more intuitive and readable animation wise (which would be the right one since Mordhau's giants are all lefties).

The main reason for this post is the following suggestion, the super impactfull never ever before thought suggestion that will flip everyone's asses around!
jk that would be nasty.
I want to suggest something that as i see it, will be unique of the quarterstaff and it has to do with the strikes done from the right side in the first person camera, with the "back edge" of the pole. A little demonstration with the swing i talk about shown at 10:48.

Another example, this one focusing more on the technique and mechanics of moving the staff around.

As i said, this would be unique to the staff since a hit with the back edge with every other pole weapon would mean a change in the type of damage it would deal, be it because of a spike, a hammer head, or simply a blunt edge. As seen here:

This in game would typically demand a change in the grip pressing the R key but with a staff that is unecesary for obvious reasons. I don't know if it would be too hard to animate and look awkward when you throw drags into the mix and that's the main reason i was holding myself back from suggesting this but the hell, here it is.
A little thingy that would give the staff a more unique feel, i hope you enjoyed this staff sperging and found it usefull in some way.

The staff still feels unsatisfying with that laughable damage

i think it would be annoying as fuck to get them cut mid-battle, i guess they could just grow back but fuck man.

Sellsword 3553 3388

They are all nice in different ways, can't vote them all so no vote from me.
Get rekt poll.
There are more people too that are mature and gentle folk like Eru, Runagate, Lux, Siege, Smoking, etc.
As always, i'm flattered by the recognition. As i said many times before my character is driven by the fondness i have for the comunity.
