I was wondering if the Fighter Features are a little out-of-sync.

The Heavy Blade Specialization applies to BOTH Longsword and Greatsword, while every other specialization only seems to apply to itself (ie. Polearm Specialization). So if a player wanted to diversify by having two different weapon sets equipped (like a one-handed weapon/shield and a two-handed power weapon) they would be silly NOT to take Heavy Blade Specialization and use Longsword/Greatsword.

Also, there are Crossbow Specialization and Bow Specialization, as well as Ranged Specialization… Why would someone take Bow if they could just take Ranged?

I'm not really sure what the solution is, but should the categories maybe be more general?

What Decius said.

Stephen Cheney has already mentioned that the melee distances are getting an overhaul in build 8. I think we should wait and see if that improves things.

I'm pretty sure they've already confirmed that they have fixed this problem. Someone else can confirm.

Damage to Target
Base Damage
The weapon has a base amount of damage it can inflict. This amount is equal to 40 + (20 * Major Keywords) + (5 * Minor Keywords). Typically attacks inflict Physical damage. Some magical attacks and some attacks from enchanted weapons deal Energy damage of one or more types.

Sorry, maybe I'm dense, but does this mean: "40 + (20 * Major Keywords MATCHED) + (5 * Minor Keywords MATCHED)" ?

This actually has been discussed in another thread, and Stephen suggested that they are looking at changing the current set-up to a hard-toggle. I believe the original discussion centred around opportunity, in that running provokes opportunity and walking does not.

I'm sorry Tyveil, but I strongly disagree.

Switching in the shield out-of-combat is not an option; the whole point of HAVING weapon swaps is to be able to switch in combat. Who are you to say that I should not be able to have two ability builds with the exact same weapon? I should not be FORCED to either have two of the exact same sword, have to equip a completely different weapon type, or awkwardly switch my gear between combats.

I was quite disappointed when I read this:

Stephen Cheney
ProximaSin
…to have Whirlwind, Thousand Cuts etc. we're going to need to carry a longsword with an empty offhand…?
…yes, longsword secondaries are only meant to be accessible if you keep a hand empty…

After I thought about it more, while looking at the ability data, it also raised an important new question for me: Will we be able to put the SAME weapon (note: not same type, the EXACT same) in both Weapon Slot 1 and 2?

If someone wants to have one weapon slot set with all longsword abilities and no offhand, and his/her second slot with a longsword and a shield, will that someone be required to have TWO longswords? This is really not an issue at the low tiers, but I would seriously have a problem with it if I had to buy, or have crafted, a tier 3 +5 longsword TWICE.

Please, please, assuage my fears and tell me that this has not been overlooked!

I don't agree regarding the implements. In MOST TT games, spell books don't just drop… a wizard spends weeks creating one.

I like the idea of implements being something that need to be worked towards, not simply handed out.
