Would you like to see DW/2H have Abilities that are altered by weapon type?

Similar to how the destro has fire/ice/lightning changes for some of their abilities in addition to the different passives, would you like to see the DW and 2H skill lines have abilities that have different effects depending on if they are Straight edge/Blunt Edge/Weighted Edge ? (sword/dagger, mace, axe)

    Absolutely, the more variety the better. While they're at it, they could add Poleams...I wait, they can't, there's a governmental/universal/divine mandate where anything ES/FO can't have Polearms. And no, the Templar class abilities aren't the same thing.

    Anything that makes wrecking blow an instant. Heck remove the stun, I don't care as long as I can run 2h on my stam sorc/dk and stop running sword and shield...

    Not as much as surprise attack or heroic slash, heck even ransack is a ghetto surprise attack. All I want is to be able to use sexy 2h without the absolute most annoying spammable in game :(

    @Subversus

    Rather than having it be instant cast, why not spread out the damage?

    ex of an idea for uppercut:
    Basic Uppercut:

    No longer 1 strike, instead, a quick light damage strike top down (from rest position), that leads to a slight ready at the trough of the downward arc leading into a fast high damage uppercut. The reason for the initial strike is so that the animation is not too much the person just holding down their weapon below their waist. Also, it prevents Empower Spamming of the ability (since only the light damage part of it will get the damage increase of 20%).

    Straight Edge (Sword): Deals 10% increased damage
    Weighted Edge (Axe): Deals [x] damage over 5 seconds.
    Blunt Edge (Mace): Stuns the enemy.

    Dizzying Swing:
    The Uppercut now knocks the enemy back.

    Wrecking Blow:
    Grants Empower, Increasing the damage of your next attack.

    Since the stun is now placed on the mace, it means that wrecking blow can grant empower, and still stun, this is why it was made to have an initial light damage hit so that you wouldn't be able to have a stun, and an empower, on the same damage tick.


    Thoughts? Comments? Suggestions?

    So it instead promotes using that spammable in conjunction with other abilities (since it can't self-empower well) . and makes the stun conditional on weapon type. The damage could be tweaked.

    @Avran_Sylt I actually dig your idea!

    My problem lays, however, in the fact that it's channeled. That shouldn't be a problem tbh, but with the way ESO targetting works, if you don't face the player for the duration of the channel, it may get cancelled. The absolute easiest way to counter such builds 1v1 is to literally run through them, it's an immense pain in the ass.

    That combined with the fact that I can't use the sensitivity I use when I play fps games on ESO and that I usually only play my 2h stam toons when drunk doesn't make it a very pleasant experience... :D

    lol. I get that. Though its the same for the DW spammable with a channel of 0.6 seconds. I could see reducing the channel time to be on par with that though.

    And, now that I think about it, the Destro/Mag weapon spammable (Force Shock) is actually instacast.... I think that should be changed.

    @Avran_Sylt yeah thing with dw is that you can just keep spamming it, WB gets negated if you don't complete the full channel. Miss 3 in a row and you basically did nothing for 6 seconds.. :( too bad because a wrecking blow build was the first build I ever played at launch when I war RPing hahahahaha

    Can we include 1h+s in that? I mean, it's bad enough they don't even get any passives for weapon types.

    Surprise attack isn't op on stamblade, but it would be op on stam sorc or dk. You have to consider the abilities in the context of the other classes. Those classes don't have a spammable for a reason, but dizzying is really strong even if you don't like how it feels.

    It would be cool if it looked like I was slashing with a longsword rather than a dagger when I use Surprise Attack.
    And when I vest my flashing sword, and my hand takes hold in judgement, I will take vengeance upon mine enemies, and I will repay those who hase me. O Lord, raise me to Thy right hand and count me among Thy saints.
