PostSubject: Knife as a weapon - detailed analysis   Sun 25 Sep 2011, 19:35

Hello again.

I watched a few fights from french labrute and I saw many people having knife as a weapon. On my brutes I am not choosing any "bad" weapons waiting for this 1-2 good ones, but levelling is hard then, so I wonder is knife considered good at higher levels? It is a fast weapon and can hit a few times... and then some more... so accepting a knife on low levels is a good thing that helps brute win more fights daily.

Can I ask more advanced members to elaborate on pros and cons for knife? What skills add up great with this weapon, which skills should be evaded etc...

Knife with Master of Arms and First Strike + Meditation is a deadly weapon.

Sabotage + knife - do you think it is a good idea?


i have brute:
(green - what I took)



What if I add knife to that?
It gives speed and I think a bit initiative too (or all my brutes that took knife right away when battle start were so lucky to always go first???), and chance of multihits - so higher chance of sabotaging weapons...?

scimitar is much better than knife, so it won't be a good idea, but if you want you can try subpaths there

I mean i like it, it takes low dmg, but may do 4-5x strike so it can be strong also. your choice, try it out one time

Of course scimitar is much better - a bit better damage, better multihit, better counter and block.

But for my brute scimitar is taken out late in a game (usually) - and it helps killing oponent but it does not help in sabotaging oponents weapons. And knife is usually taken out fast and with my first strike it may (If I am lucky) get 2x damage and then go once more and do 1-2x times damage - that means 3-4 weapons of my oponent are destroyed... At least It is how I imagine this to happen... So I may try choosing knife before scimitar, but I think for now I will explore this path a bit more - and knives are prettty common so there is a chance I would be offered it again soon right? :)

By the way - she just ranked up today :) Scimitar helped a lot.

it is a tricky path, i personly would change it and take a new destiny. but if you choose to explore it, you could try +3 Agi at lvl6 instead of counter because if you will go with the knife , your destiny will be average or a bit above that, but you will need alot of Skills to make it great, which is unlikely to happend Sad

about the knife: (+ good) , (- bad)
- generaly you shouldn´t take the knife without or before Weapons Master at all.
- the knife combind with counter + shield is an OK weapon but not ideal for such type of brutes unless you have many fast and good blocking weapons like the sai or cimeter.
+ it is a very good weapon combind with First Strike, Thief and "Tornado of Blows"
- it can be blocked with the shield easily.
- it can be thrown fast as a single weapon, so it is mostly more effective along with 1 or 2 other weapons.
+ it is the best Speed drainer in the game , very powerfull against opponents with low Speed.

IMO the knife is a very good weapon with first strike and weapon master thanks to the speed boost and its wonderful accuracy (best after leek). Nice damages for a offensive weapon.

Scimitar is a little different, the boost in speed is not the same, a little bit less accurate but a better combo rate and a better block rate.

I disagree with this. The knife damage is more affected by the strength stat. And damages # damages/hit. You're bound to come back more easily with a knife. Imo the scimitar is more defensive.

The scimitar is as easily blocked as the knife. Razz

well from what i see with RicaRica http://labrute.muxxu.com/b/69966 i think that the knife is way better than the scimitar if we consider the damage + multi hits + multi attacks ,
but if i will have counter shield , as tama wrote about the scimitar being more defensive weapon , i would say that scimitar is better overall
