    One reason to code in spears I suppose! Hadn't thought of one as yet.

    According to the PnP rules, a Heavy Pick can be wielded in two hands for more damage if you're not using a shield. It's really too bad DDO doesn't include that feature, because as-is there is very little attraction to using a Heavy Pick. (They'd be able to use the same animations as a greataxe, so it should be simpler than creating a new "spear-stabbing" anim)

    If you find it "aggressive" to honestly point out when something is false, so be it..
    I guess I just found it aggressive because after Aranticus' analysis he didn't come out and make a statement like "and thus you can see that dwarven axes are superior to khopeshes and purchasing the khopesh feat is clearly a mistake." Had he said something like that, I would have been the first to call him insane. I just though his analysis was a subtle inference or suggestion that khopeshes might not be as good, an inference I too definitely felt compelled to correct.

    1. In terms of overall damage, the bastard sword is virtually identical to the dwarven axe. 1d10 19-20/x2 and 1d10 20/x3 are nearly the same: either way, 20 attacks from 1-20 will give you 22 damages at d10+enhance+str each. The relationship between dwarf axe and bastard is the same as between battleaxe and longsword. Note that for a typical fighter, the dwarf axe and bastard sword both do the same damage as the non-exotic scimitar.
    I didn't realize the scimitar was that good. I'll definitely have to keep my eye out for more of those on my bastard-sword proficient slashing-specialized fighter.

    Actually a guildie and I were talking about a pick weilding Barbarian.

    Dual weilding Heavy and Light picks with the barb enhancement to widen the crit range. We were looking at critting on 17-20 on that guy. With the right pick very nasty.
