Q: Marissa: What about Asheron's Call?

A: Craig: AC is coming up on its tenth year anniversary in November. We have a big update planned for that. We're doing a big overhaul to a lot of the systems to bring in more modern gameplay elements related to the UI, quest tracking, etc. The team continues to crank up content and keep its very loyal fans occupied in the world.

Two Handed Combat Skill

As revealed in the May 5th teaser video, two handed weapons will be one of the new additions. In the discussion that followed, we learned more details about these weapons:

  • Two handed weapons will require a new skill, called Two Handed Combat. They will not require the traditional melee weapon skills. This will be a completely new melee combat skill.
  • Two Handed Combat will cost 8 credits to train and 8 credits to specialize.
  • Two Handed Combat will be based off of strength and coordination.
  • Two handed weapons will multi-strike (double strike).
  • The current damage per second (DPS) of Two Handed Combat is set for 110% of sword DPS, divided between the two swings.
  • You will not be able to wield a shield while wielding a two handed weapon, in combat or peace mode. In order to wield a shield you will have to unequip the two handed weapon.
  • Some two handed weapons will have a "Cleave" effect. Each strike also hits an additional creature in the 90 degree attack arc in front of you.
