    I was looking at some of my swordsmanship weapons and comparing them to the Blaze of Death, marty halberd and I noticed something. Halberds have a swing rate of 4.25s, base damage of 18-19 with special moves of Primary Whirl wind, secondary concussion. Why? That's horribly slow and I don't really see why. First I thought damage... But no... The Ornate axe is 18-20 with a swing rate of 3.5s, Maybe it's special moves? The double axe, although weaker, has a swing rate of 3.25, and the Large battle axe of 3.75s, Concussion blow? The long sword, One handed, has slightly lower damage, but is 3.5s and one handed. The bardiche is 3.75s, 17-18, and has para blow and dismount. Now the bardiche is about the same size in 2d as the halberd, weighs close to 1/2 it's weight 7 stones as apposed to the Halberds massive 16 stones. my question is... Why? Why not make it lighter? I love halberds because they look better on my character for RP purposes but I'd also like them to be much more usable... End rant :/

    Halberds are weaker and slower than other newer weapons because weapons need rebalancing.

    ML weapons in general are ridiculously more powerful than normal weapons.
