Exotic weapons: What would you like to see?

Seeing as we were told that exotic weapons will be in the game (with many using the same style as mundane ones while others requiring more work such as whips), I figure it might be fun to get ideas from players as to what they want to see.

Personally I enjoy exotic weapons far more than regular mundane ones. Every game has swords, maces, and axes, but we're suppose to be heroes and heroes often have unique and cool weapons as often as standard ones.

So my question is, what types of weapons would you want to see?

I'd like to see Scythes, Whips, War Fans, and Falcatas. I know Falcatas are just A type of sword, but still!

    Not exotic in their own right, but the scabbard is unique.. Scroll Daggers.. Worn on the lower back and have the appearance of a scroll with both daggers sheathed. Classy.

  • Chakrams would be cool.

    I'd like to see things like hook swords and 3 section staffs as well. One thing that's always annoyed me with MMOs is that the weapon selections are limited to very basic things.

    A gun from the future.

    Double-bladed Staff would be interesting. Would sais be considered a dagger-like weapon? Would be nice to see some other pole arms used besides the halberd. Billhook, Bardiche, Glaive, Pole Axe, Lucerne and so much more. For Greatswords, would a Zweihander be just a different skin or would it be a sub-category for the Greatsword with its own unique stats?
  • Personally I am against them. They dont seem to fit the setting

    I'm all for exotic weapons in a fantasy game so long as they stay away from Si-Fi and modernish weapons(gatling gun)

    Are the potion guns (sorry launchers) only for Apoc, or will they be in the AoC as well...

    well they keep saying everything will be ported over to the MMO so I would say yes

    I believe they should be in the MMO, I just hope that you can supply them with different types of potions as ammo to change their effect rather than just be the grenade launcher they are in APOC.

    I would like that as well. an ice potion freezes foes and a hex potion reduces stats

    They could implement, that alchemists could make attachments for the potion launcher. (IS said that ammunition wont be a thing after all)

    Ugh, ammunition needs to be a thing though.

    It's one of the major advantages ranged weaponry had, modifying the ammunition used. Also helped balance out ranged weaponry's advantage of, well, range.

    Wait... There's no selection of ammo the be changed out in bows/xbows to fit the situation at hand?! That's a bummer for sure. Would have been fun to craft the different types.

    Bastard Swords (Hand and a Half), Katanas, Actual Greatswords,(Not just 2 handed swords), Possibly some of the more Exotic and Obscure (I.E. "The Sky Sword" from "The Sword and The Sorcerer" 3 Blades one Sword!!!
