    Default Half-Orc and the Orc Double Axe

    So with Half-Orc headed this way...

    Will we get the Orc Double Axe?

    For those that do not know...

    1d8/1d8 x3

    It is a staff with an axe head on both ends. It is a racial weapon.

    It also DOES NOT require exotic weapon Prof for Half-Orcs if the Half-Orc has Martial Weapon Prof.

    Also you DO NOT suffer the minus to attack with using 2 large weapons (or a non-light weapon in your off-hand)

    This would baisically put Half-Orc on par with a Human as far as feats go for RNGs or any other 2WF

    You would not *need" OTWF (though a lotta builds do not choose this feat anyway)

    I would really like to see this weapon introduced. It is a BIG racial bonus weapon as Dwarven Axe and Elf scmis and Drow Rapiers/shortswords.

    But the most important reason to add this feat/weapon...It would look freaking awesome.

    What's everyone's thoughts to this?

    Wouldn't it be easier to make it a 2d8 x3 2h weapon?

    That would be BROKEN! More likely, they will give orcs a free OTWF feat with battleaxes only, and racial bonuses to axe damage like a dwarf.

    I was thinking with a penalty to attackspeed just as how quarterstarves attack faster (I think). Admittedly if it attacks at the same speed as the non-quarterstaff weapons it would be overpowered..

    I think I hate the double weapon mechanic even before it was introduced.

    But good luck.

    PS. Staffs aren't a problem, even polearms/spears with a butt spike, much further though and you get into the realm of silly. Sort of like some "fantasy" swords with guards that bite into you if you swing them, or worse "sword-chucks"

    If pretty much anyone else said this I would take the "wait and see attitude"

    *BUT*

    Trillea has been correct (ahead of schedule...think hes an undercover DEV) many times before. Is this confirmed? Or just speculation. I agree Trillea that you are prolly right and that is what I speculate will happen (and also Falchions), but this is more of a plea/begging for Orc Double Axes.

    Maybe if enough people /sign this...Turbine/Devs will consider making it? Plus I would just generally like more weapon choices (hate the freaking Khopesh).

    Heh thank you, I can assure you I am not a Dev, just going by years of D&D and gaming experience in general, with a bit of business sense and common sense thrown into the mix. I think the common sense is what throws my predictions off the most tho...

    I don't see how this weapon would be overpowered...

    One of the versions of it is a 2d6 x3 critical... The Rahl's Might is a 1d10 x3 Critical...

    Now, I don't know how the mechanics on it would work, but either way, I would LOVE to have it on my Half Orc... So I hope we do see it!

    Correct me if I'm wrong: doesn't PnP treat Qstaffs as 2WF based on the fact you can strike with both ends of the staff?

    If so I don't see this as overpowered, it would actually make a nice change from all the khopesh builds.
