[Skills help] Weapons Help Automatic Each weapon skill modifies a character's chance to hit and damage with any weapon sub-type in that skill's weapon group. For classes with the parry skill, a good knowledge of how to use your current weapon will enable better parrying. Some weapons are capable of special actions. The weapon groups contain the following weapon sub-types: axe throwing axe, battle-axe, double-bladed axe, great-axe, pole-axe bow shortbow, longbow, compound bow, hunting bow, archery bow crossbow hand crossbow, crossbow, siege crossbow, catapult, ballista dagger dagger, skinning knife, tanto, hunting knife, push-knife, throwing dagger, sai, curved dagger, straight dagger, khukri flail flail, ball and chain, morningstar, nunchaku mace club, spiked club, flanged mace, spiked mace, warhammer, spiked warhammer, flanged pole-mace, spiked pole-mace spear throwing spear, hunting spear, battle spear, ahlspiess, trident polearm halberd, pike, bill, glaive, bec de corbin, scythe, naginata, lance staff staff, cane, jo staff, bo staff, spiked staff, blade staff, ajatang sword shortsword, gladius, scimitar, wakizashi, kris, machete, rapier, epee, longsword, broadsword, katana, bastard sword, greatsword, cutlass claymore, flamberge, no-dachi, falchion, khopesh, landsknecht whip whip, riding crop, bullwhip, battle-whip, spiked chain boulder boulder, ore, ballista bolt exotic kama, sickle, kusari-gama, bandalore, bolo, shuriken, magical orbs Two-handed weapons do not do additional damage but will allow the wielder to make greater use of their strength. If a weapon has reach, it can reach across that one rank in a group formation and still be used for melee combat. Massive weapons are harder for opponents to parry and shield block, but are also harder to parry with and take additional energy to swing in combat. Some weapons can be thrown, including many types of daggers, throwing axes, throwing spears, bolos and shuriken. Flails and whips cannot be parried without special training. The exotic skill cannot be taught or trained, and depends solely upon level. Not every weapon that exists is listed here. See also: parry throw 'specialize list'
