Weapon usage statistics?
Mr Mutant,

Could you post some weapon usage stats for me?
What is the most popular weapon used by the player characters in the game?
Which is the least used? (I'm guessing the Short Sword isn't a favourite....)

Actually, if my quick querying is correct, Short Sword is the most popular melee weapon, followed by Halberds a fair way back.

Long Bow is the most popular ranged weapon (not much surprise there).

Of course, this includes enchanted and upgraded items...

However, if we remove level 1 characters, Halberd becomes the most popular, and Short Sword drops way down.

Re: Weapon usage statistics?
Your query must include recruitable characters as well as those currently in parties?

I have a sweet sling, but I'm still looking for a suitable quarterstaff!

Nope, only characters in currently active parties.

Re: Weapon usage statistics?
Vaguely on topic. What is the reasoning behind slings having only one attack per round, while bows have two? Haven't tried a crossbow, so don't know if they are one or two attacks per round. Is it to offset the one-handedness?

All ranged weapons have 2 attacks per 3 rounds if used by an Archer.
