Dastrient Posted October 18, 2014 Share Posted October 18, 2014 I recently acquired the Fang Prime, it is the first dagger weapon I have used aside from Sheev. I was surprised to find that the fang deals primarily puncture damage with a bit of impact. The animation for the dagger makes this more confusing for a few reasons. 1. The daggers are held in the Reverse Ice Pick grip. This is an advances short bladed weapon grip that focuses primarily on slashing attacks with backhanded thrusts for stabs. 2. I have no stance for the daggers, but the basic eee combo appears to follow what someone might actually do with this grip, and the animation appears to be predominantly slashing attacks. Seeing these two things i assumed that the mod Rending Strike would finally have a relevant position on a weapon. I Know everyone is happy with the stats that fang prime provides now, but I would like to see a dagger whose stats match their animations. A secondary note on weapons, I am surprised to find that there are no puncture based swords in the game. There are many stances that state "thrusting attacks" but we don't have a rapier or any other kind of fencing sword, just thought this was odd.
