Why not imploment spears and short pikes now that we have thrusting?
Spears are great, basically daggers on long sticks, pick normal one over short, hirelings do great on novice withst with it too.Well they put a few in (I've seen 2) and to be honest they seem a little too weak , like swords haveing a higher thrust than the spears. As a spear fan, this makes me sad
While I get where you´re coming from, it has less to do with the "stats" of these items, but rather with their physical shape which causes them to handle differently while thrusting. The current way thrusting is animated seems to handle itself better to weapons with a larger head which "bite" more into the enemy, and not equally well to small pointy weapons as they are much more prone to glance off and lose most of their power.The poleaxe and halberd are so damn good at thrusting compared to spears, I agree. However we should not be comparing novice tier weapons to expert tier weapons.
