Man! I was campaigning for whips since PoE1. I think I also opened a thread about whips here - during the first days or so.

I was actually planning to spend 750$ on a unique cat o'nine tails - but then the BIBs crew came around and I decided to put my money there. ;)

Whips always seem tricky in these sorts of games. It's hard to justify their utility against well armored opponents. Flails and meteor hammers do make more sense

with few exceptions, the weapons not already in the game would be o' questionable battlefield viability.  remove lances and other mounted combat weapons. remove weapons only useful in actual squad formations.  we got almost all the real stuff already.

 

HA! Good Fun!

If we get katanas, I will riot. Those are never viable weapons. Hmmph.

Whips would do crap damage against heavy armor sure but what if it was more of a %chance to inflict a random status effect?? such as...

 

Disarm

Prone (Pulldown)

Bleeds (Unarmored targets)

Could be badass with other sorts of ideas this way, if you can't do **** to tanky humanoids then pull the feet out from under them.

 

Yay or Neh?
