Mostly for those who knew me in alpha, but why not show everybody.

The speed of it makes up for not being able to be dragged. It's a gambler's dream.

Quarterstaff is actually a very strong weapon, I would even argue it's the strongest of all 1/2 point weapons in a duel.

I use it on all of my archer loadouts both in FL and skirmish competitive pugs, and regularly beat players of roughly equal skill with it.

If anything, it might need a slight nerf, not a buff.

Speed is not that much of an advantage against experienced players, oftentimes the opposite unless it is paired with decent dragging.

It also is not nearly as fast as most think it is.

Windup is 525ms. That is literally the same as messer and 2h bastard sword.

Only reason qstaff seems fast is that it has 0 draggability and hits quick off the windup. This also means that it is an extremely easy weapon to read, with average windup speed and no control after the swing goes out.

Anyone who regularly gets killed by Qstaff is legit having a l2p issue

I like the idea, buffing it to 4HTK with 2 strikes and 2 stabs, even then I still think it's only worth 2 points. To be honest, with the dagger and cleaver buffs, not only the quarterstaff but the short sword feels overshadowed too. QS and short sword (and rapier but that's another story) are the only weapons that can't 3HTK on tier 3 armor now.

The headshots are where the dmg is at in this model. It is also a bit longer and draggier with slightly more windup.

Headshot swing to t3 being 45 dmg.

A baseball bat is a stick. Do you really think it would do less to armor than a sword would?

A staff is that baseball bat but stretched out. There is nothing silly about it. One of the quintessential weapons during this time period.

Regardless of what you think, cleaver is basically a hunting knife but can 3htk full plate on swings. So honestly dude not only is what you are saying wrong, it is irrelevant for game balance alone.

All,

With the recent buffs to dagger and cleaver, it is safe to say that Qstaff is even more lackluster than it once was.

Basically I think it should be reworked as a longer, heftier, but more costly respectable weapon with viable dmg and mixups for its reach at the price of 3pts (still keeping it as the cheapest polearm).

Why is this needed? Simply put the damn thing feels weak not only in dmg but also in use, being solely effective at beating up newbs. This is due to a combination of its crap stamina, crap dmg, and mostly its crap release time (active frame drag window). Buffing all of these whilst making it longer helps fill the empty niche of the long blunt polearm while still keeping it relatively quick and snappy so it is unique. In this suggestion, it was slowed slightly to keep it from becoming abusive (for reference, longsword windup is 550ms)

Dmg and all that is fine on warhammer. What is really needs is a little reach. Its too quick to be that short.

Axe is a little bit slower and you can noticeably hit people from further away because of it. Warhammer is too easily juked right now.

Other than that though, it's not that bad of a weapon.

Baxe and Waxe are pretty different man

With that logic every weapon is superfluous because they are all +/- of longsword

Make it 5pts

Much longer than warhammer (around bastard sword size)

Alt mode uses the spike side but is also 2h. Blunt mode is 1h.

Bit slower. Better drags.

Not trying to be a dick but what you are proposing would make it have broken accels because the swing starts farther forward, so you wouldn't need to telegraph the instahit by looking into it anymore.

Also it is far from useless. It's not very uncommon at high level

The solution to your problem here is to use overheads and be more mindful when you have people beside you. If you'd rather not deal with that then use flanks and cleave everyone from behind.

I use a lot of different weapons but if I had to pick,

Billhook
Rapier + Buckler
Spear

Greatsword and Zweihander are good but too vanilla for me to list them as my favorites

Should make some specialized one for using and fighting against shields, and another for dealing with spammers maybe.

Those seem to be the biggest hurdles for new players who don't just rage review the game.

I don't see how someone has to be a 1000+ hr veteran to know how to parry and riposte. Sounds more like a flaw in the tutorial to me. Should definitely be mandatory.

No joke 50% of players I see in a match wait until after block animation is over to attempt to swing back. Many of them didn't know you could combo either, and it's these people that don't know basic shit that will complain the most.

I know this is probably just being cheeky, but if you want realistic bows then lets also make any melee weapon that isn't a heavy blunt or polearm do next to 0 dmg to armor and make it where only 10% of the server even has access to it.

For real though, most swords wont even cut through gambeson let alone maille/plate
