  • Item Preview: 2-Handed Melee Weapons

    Greetings Grim Dawninians! It is with great pleasure to Announce that I have managed to crawl out of the artist pit long enough to bring you a special glimpse of some of the up-and-coming Savage™ 2-handed melee weapon class.

    As many of you know, Cairn is a war-torn world with very limited resources. In as much, we've tried to capture a sense of improvised necessity and desperation in the earlier tiers of our common weapon classes: An old farm scythe strapped on a large stick becomes a new axe, while rusty old gears from some forgotten contraption has been reincarnated as a sturdy bashing stick. After several tiers of cobbled, improvised killing devices, you will start to see the remnants of greater weapons from the ages past. These rare weapons are coveted most of all, for very few now possess the skill or knowledge to recreate their glorious craftsmanship.
    Below is a small sampling of a few 2-handers from the 3 melee types (sword, axe and hammer). Most are lower level, but I included a couple higher tiers to show some progression. I've also included the concept with each item so you can see a little before and after action. Please take care not to cut yourself while handling the images, some of the blades probably have a decent amount of tetanus (or something worse).
    Hope you enjoy!

          Brace yourself B18 is coming and it will rock!

          Excellent 2h art style Love all the make shift designs. They look as effective as they can be from what is available.

          Any chance we may see spears in the game? They are my favorite type of weapon in Titan Quest. Just too bad you could not dual wield them =/

            Awesome! The pieced together parts are very fitting, love this apocalyptic, scavenging atmosphere.

            Didn't expect 2handers to become part of the existing items, I thought they were going to be a separate category. This way is better off course! Do they work with every melee skill?
            There may be no 'I' in team, but there's a 'ME' if you look hard enough.

              I expect they work with all the non shield soldier skills, swf, and firestrike. The rest, I doubt it :P

              Cadence will be...interesting depending on what 2h damage ends up. I look forward to finding a way to abuse it!

                Will there be any scythe shaped two-handed weapons? You know, with curving handle and blade?

                            I am curious how these weapons shall be held? Either by holding a single grip area with two hands being close together (same as holding a basic two handed sword), or will the arms be separated, one closer to the bottom grip and the other closed to the blade? It would seem strange if our character is holding a grand axe the same way the two handed sword is held by two hands close together on bottom grip. It would seem there should be two two-handed weapon stances. One for two handed sword the other for two-handed axes and hammers

                            So, if I understand this correctly, those items will be available in the next major build. Preferably B18?. OP said: "upcoming two-handed weapon class". So it is confirmed, the next class after Arcanist is Savage class?

                            As for concept art, awesome work as always.

                              Drazac I believe he means class of weapon and not class of build.
