What's the purpose of sabres?

The role-playing games (I-X) that started it all and the various spin-offs (including Dark Messiah).

What's the purpose of sabres?

Postby Gilnar » Mar 6 2016, 14:15

I mean - they're weaker than longswords, yet you get a longsword if you start with a sword skill. So unless you get a higher level sabre early on, they are basicallly worthless.

It is a bug. Swords are too much because 14. Staff only 3. It need modding.

I guess what you're asking isn't "why are there so many different types of swords?", but more: "why is there a sword weaker than the starting sword?". Well, you could find one and learn the skill at a guild. Plus it makes crappy loot more varied.
You'd think Darkmoor was a ghost town, but instead there's plenty of life among the dead.

There is no sense. If you learn skill you find more better swords in chests.
Better thing is give more another weapons. 14 swords and 3 staffs. Better is make 6 staffs.

Sabre = sword. Recovery time 90.

It's probably just because in the real world swords were the most common weapon. Same reason there are so many spear types.

There are no hidden stats to them. All swords have the same recovery time (as far as I'm aware).

I think that material may be for repair skill. There is no coincide with damages.
