Does anyone know wether weapon weight or the weapon type determine how fast the weapon is? I was using a partisan prior to a bastard sword and it seems the spear(partisan) was faster.. I couldnt find the info anywhere even in a database. Thanks in advance!
I think it is just type; hand weapons vs dagger, weight difference is small but attacks are very different. Spear and sword are not too far apart in speed but spear hits much harder. Also note that weapons have a range, I can hit more stuff with a spear from farther away while the hand weapons have a super short range.
The attack speed is primarily based on the type of weapon. There are some very small changes in attack speed based on race, but these aren't worth basing a character around. There's also a theory that agility increases attack speed, but this has yet to be confirmed
In the game guide says, but your giving a blow a couple of tenths of a second before or after the difference. If you realize, modified weapons agility and skill, so that ultimately determine its speed. Swords are faster because they do not change anything, axes are slower than swords because they modify the agility and dexterity, for example. Then you need to take into account the scope of the weapon, and strike force.
