A degree of weapon juggling gives a sheen of strategy for weapon-specialist classes, which nicely balances off the tactical element in choosing which spell to memorise/branch of magic to specialise in for the caster classes.

Having a warrior carry three different weapons (range + 2 melee) isn't unrealistic or immersion breaking.

That said, outright immunity for common enemies is annoying. Many posters have mentioned differing damage resistance as a better option. Perhaps reserve immunities for well telegraphed powerful monsters or bosses.

Resistances are great. It adds to combat variance. immunities on the other hand are annoying.

I mean when Aerie yells for the tenth time "My weapon has no effect!" i was just striving to finish the encounter to shut her up :p. Those memories are still vibrant and i don't want to experience this kind of thing anytime soon.
