Ok, so I originally had a melee toon that used Khopesh as a weapon, mainly for the crit profile - took the feat, and had all sorts of special beaters. Then the enhancement pass rolled around, I had to adjust my feats, and this meant having to drop Khopesh. By happenstance I started to take up Scimitars.
it seemed to me that, all things being the same, the scimitar seems to crit more often, and appears to do more damage over all than an equivalent Khopesh. Now, I didn't run the math like some guys here can do. However, my question is this: is what I am observing accurate, or is this simply a matter of what I am seeing now being more relevant than what I recall from the past?
And if I am indeed correct, why would people recommend taking Khopesh for the crit profile when it doesn't require a special feat to take scimitar?
