    When you create a character from a preset template (like a new player will), you often get started with a weapon that does not match your starting weapon skill. (Necros start with fencing but are given bone harvesters... my gargoyle warrior started with swords, and was given a bloodblade(fencing))..

    then they end up going out into the world and get owned by a mongbat and throw the game away. that kindof crap needs to be fixed.

    P.s. why is the bloodblade a fencing weapon? it looks like a longsword.

    Valid point, and I've noticed this when starting social characters on new shards. I typically choose a necro for the indigo armour, did notice they gave the wrong weapon. Maybe they need a new necro-flavoured fencing weapon, like a "sacrificial" spike or a "curses, foiled again" foil.
