In every epoch lumberjack axes existed. Lumberjack axes are always 2 handed. So based on this fact, how do you want to convince me that in the heat of battle somebody in Viking age won't use his lumberjack axe to fight if he simply hasn't access to any other weapons at the moment?!nacholoko16 said:Did you study something some time fella? 2 H axe werent from that age, 2 H axe are from 11th...wildyracing said:And why exactly you have to state your position as a pure fact? There were two-handed axes in Viking's age, even if very rarely used in battle! Two handed axes should be in the game!nacholoko16 said:We need more ONE handed axe variety and Expensive swords, thats the main i guess. An about 2 h axe Rollo time, totally true fella! 8/10 little fellas who play this and say WHERE IS THE 2 H axe on forum is because they watch Vikings(like the serie but things might be discerned) and love ROLLO s2s2s2mauhur said:Ill explain some stuff about my suggestion for polearm/two-handed axes/one-handed axes to be more common and more variety:
1 Good reason for it to be implemented is that not everyone had enough coin to buy or even make a sword.
2 Even though some axes were actualy pretty expensive and not everyone had a handy small war axe for one hands, Axes were still pretty common.
Anyway the axe that would be fun for devs to add is a dark age axe: http://bladesmithsforum.com/uploads/monthly_01_2011/post-26987-129494690272.jpg after all axes should be alot more common, but swords should be more worth than it already is and it should cost more for someone to carry a sword, anyway.
3 It is the earlier version of Danish Bearded Axe, remember that we are not in 10th Century but 8th, stuff are slowly processing, that would be the ancestor of Danish Bearded Axes, most people think vikings used axes the most but actualy Saxons and many other cultures used the axes more than sword aswell, not only for its cost but it was actualy really effective weapon for its price, as many said in the earlier comments sword were really expensive too, it was for people with high status, the higher-end soldiers, kings, earls, jarls, nobles, ETC. For a commoner a sword would be impossible, maybe if that commoner scavenged from the killed enemy.
In anyway though, everything can wait, i would rather have a fixed DLC than having new stuff added to the sadly bad DLC(i like it though, bad in a way that the bugs and glitches ruin it.)
In your logic maybe he will try to use it with one hand? Or maybe he will not use it, because it is not 'politically correct' for him to fight with 2 handed axe and he will fight bare handed instead? Ridiculous... 2 handed axes existed since the invention of the axe and have always been used for battle as long as for lumberjacking as long as for home defense if you insist.
2 handed swords are a whole different thing, but 2 handed axes must be in the game, let the devs name them 'lumberjack' axes if it bothers you, I am OK with this as long as they exist in-game.
