Looks like that "weapon" is merely for show and would not actually see combat in any way.

I would like to see some interesting polearms though, we'll have to see.

I love this idea, it would require additional animations but how awesome would that be. The weapon could also have a skill with it where you swing it in a very large radius for additional damage every x attack.

Yeah, Wikipedia says the Partisan (along with most other kinds of spears) fell out of professional military use with the advent of modern firearms. But, as medierra once pointed out, they weren't dealing with a zombie apocalypse.

Plus, add to the weapon some cool Occultist class lore (the Ravenmaster lore I suggested for example) and it hardly matters that the weapon is more showy than action-y, as it's the stats that count (an Occultist would use it for the "+X to summon raven" stat, even if the weapon itself is just for show).

The link you provide for "Ravenmaster" doesn't point to any lore in Grim Dawn (made up or actually shown in the forums).

Sure having some sort of item called "Ravenmaster" might be interesting depending on how it's presented and what the lore entails (unless your example would be altered to be similar in one of the castles/cities in Cairn or something).

Maybe the lore could revolve around one of a early Occultists who could summon entire flocks of ravens to attack his enemies. Then you could have +x to summon raven and some sort of proc or skill that can summon more ravens that reflect on the skill points put into summon raven (could either summon a maximum amount, or have a cooldown, or the ravens last for so long and then fly off, and so on when it comes to other ideas).

Just an idea trying to build off yours.

While browsing the internet I found an interesting weapon : The Sword Breaker

'A weapon of the Middle Ages, the sword breaker was a long sturdy dagger with notches cut on one side of the blade. During battle a knight would catch his opponent’s sword in one of the notches and with a quick twist would break the blade.'
It could be a fun utility weapon, with a percentage chance to decrease the enemy's outgoing physical damage by, lets say, 40%. It could be used as a second hand weapon or you could swich to in and back durning the fight

Wow those look quite inefficient but also pretty cool.
