War Axe/Sharp axe

Postby Twin Axes » Sun Jul 26, 2009 3:25 pm

The +55 pow one. Is it the most useless weapon in the game or is there a way to use it other than throw it at orcs?

Ok, I'll answer it myself. Naglfar's special attack with it is actually relatively good. It's easy to execute and actually hits sometimes.

Yes you are quite right. A few of the Dwarf axes have less than perfect strike edges in the models. The War Axe is the worst. I even made an improved version which you can find in the Dwarf Wars mod. You can tell it from the original as the textures don't quite fit.[:I]

** In case you hadn't realised, the War Axe and Sharp Axe have their names switched on the combo screens. Also the Sharp Axe and Killer Axe.[8)]

Corrected version of jpeg file (by prospero btw): http://www.arokhslair.net/forum/topic.a ... IC_ID=2476 .
(For some reason I can't find that topic via forum searching. But suddenly Google helped me... when I searched for "hacha de batalla blade of darkness"))

I have tried improving te War Axe using the basic model extracted by Harrison.
I think it is better, but hard to tell. [:D] Blunt weapons are more effective for Nalfgar as the collisions are non-directional.

Adding collision edges is quite tricky as sometimes the model will crash the 3Dmax when you try to export. No idea why.[B)]

There is a long-handled axe I made in ProsperoArena3 which gives a bit extra reach.[8)]

Use knight's swords.

I remember this problem... the War Axe is completely useless - as I recall it's better to stick with the Biting Axe and Spiked Club until you get hold of the Sharp Axe.

The next "booby prize" is the Combat Axe - it suffers from a short haft...

Both of these can be hurled at an enemy (or over the battlements)... luckily the killer axe has a decent combo.

You can use the knights swords but that's not as fun as a dwarf with axes and hammers.

The Queen's sword is another matter of course.

Install Multi Combos mod from Gladiator. If Prospero deoesn't supply it ,I'll look for it later.
Dwarf then uses swords with special attacks.
