Sergeant at Arms
Please and thank you. Really frustrating to watch a "Cav Pro" run into a formation of 24 peasant pikes, clearly take 40-50 stabs(which have no effect because we are *too close* to the giant iron spike), and just slowly trot away.
No other class can make a mistake anywhere close to that magnitude and not instantly die.
Not only spears, often other long weapons bounce off of cav as well, making fighting cav a huge pain in the ass. This problem is even worse in groups when you have limited space to swing/take distance. I hope that the devs simply make it impossible for a weapon to bounce off of a horse, seems like it would be the final solution for the "cav player gets caught by 10 inf and runs away while only losing 20 hp on the horse".Spear in general still bounces far too often unless there's speed bonus attached.
As for spears, they also need to have slightly reduced bounce off range on foot vs inf to make it viable in group fights.
