View Full Version : ABILITIES Hunter's sword

I noticed that Hunters have a sword on their back but they cannot use it, what about to implement an ability wich would use that weapon?


Slash: the Hunter extract his sword and slash enemy vampires in front of him (the vampire must be so close to the Hunter). Damage: 250-300.

The developers have stated that they want humans to be ranged and vampires to be melee, creating asymmetrical gameplay. This might change, but I believe abilities like that would go against their current intentions for Nosgoth. Although you are definately not the first one to request such an ability from the Hunter ;) Perhaps he can throw it instead?

I know that they want Humans to be ranged, but the sword would be a skill-single hit with countdown, not a weapon like the crossbow. Something to use when the vampires come too close.

Throw the sword? Nah, the Scout already throw knives :D

Honestly, the devs should just remove the "sword" from the Hunter. It does makes him look like a bad ass, but it's a bit misleading. I put quotes on sword because I've always considered it more of a machete (yes, a machete is classified as a sword but its main purpose is as an agricultural/exploring tool).

As for game play, the Hunter is a bit OP at the moment and a strong close range melee ability might be too much.

I know that Hunter is balanced now, but i cannot see that sword and cannot use it :D :D

Btw, some skin doesen't have the sword, is it right?

Most requested feature ever.... Don't hold your breath though.

The sword looks short enough that an extra skill for throwing it in a spiral (perhaps in place of bola) seems feasible, and I doubt you'll find someone to argue against it ... so long as it doesn't break balance.
