Will gargoyles ever get more love in the special moves department?

    Right now, they're kinda limited.





    Disarm only on one fencing weapon, a two-handed one, and one mace?

    Whirlwind only on one slow two-handed swords weapon?

    Feint not available at all?

    No ranged dismount from throwing, even though archers get it with a heavy crossbow?




    Pretty weak if you ask me. Humans and elves have a lot more options.

    They have a ranged dismount, Ender. Infused Throw will either dismount (if the gargoyle is on foot, just like all other dismounts) or paralyze (if the gargoyle is flying or if both parties are on foot).

    I do agree that they suffer a distinct lack of weapon choices, tho :)

    Oh, really? There wasn't a description ingame when I checked.

    They're weak now.
    3.5 (the WW weapon) is actually a manageable swing speed if you have high stamina and a 30 SSI weapon

    Gargoyles have strengths and weaknesses. While they may be weak in Special Moves, they have strengths such as ranged dismount.
