Well, it has been awhile since I really talked about the world in-game, you know, aside from Christmas stuff, so that changes today. Anyway, I have been playing Ryzom and have become very aware that there are many different styles of weaponry in the game. Magic Amplifiers of course are the way that those with a magic proficiency would best be able to exert their energy. The amplifiers really help magic but the attack on them is pretty much nill and there is no ability to wield a shield. There are also your standard bladed weapons like daggers and short to long swords. There are swords like the duelist blade that are one handed and there are two handed swords like the Flaming Sword you receive after the mission where one kills Arken. The two handed weapons tend to cause more damage but one can duel wield with the one-handed weapons or use shields with their one handed weapons. On top of that, one handed weapons are usually lighter and have a faster attack rate. A two handed weapon I have gotten into is the mace. I wield a heavy mace that deals a ton of damage but with a pokey attack rate. I have been able to do some serious damage with this thing. There are other weapon as well. These are meant for longer range. There are Pikes, Spears, and other ranged weapons that work pretty well when you want to keep enemies at a distance. You can also use your hands in combat if disarmed. I have gone pugilist style and beaten up enemies like a brawler. It’s pretty fun to do. Anyway, this is a rundown of the weapons I have available now on Ryzom.
