No one told us guys. No one noticed.

No one loves the Glaive.

We should all be ashamed of ourselves :P

@[DE]Rebecca, I have a question:

As you surely know, Heavy weapons (in particularly two-handed swords) are objectively better than one handed weapons in the game. They have more damage, bigger reach, and mods make the supposed slower swing speed irrelevant. 
With that in mind, will multiwielding only be available to one-handed weapons? seems like a good way to balance things up: choose a massive, solely melee weapon, or a weaker one but capable of using a pistol too.

Also, I have no idea whether you discussed this on the devstream or not: I havent watched it, so excuse the ignorance if you did.

I believe Nikanas are 2-handed single swords. Similar to Galatine, you likely won't be able to use that.

Only decisive judgement stance is 2 handed

Single-handed melees & single-handed secondaries will be paired, they're outright worse in DPS and often utility too so getting to use them both at once seems like an incredibly fair way to make them relevant.

They stated that was the case. Single swords, Machetes, Glaives and something else I'¡m forgetting (daggers?). Basically one handed weapons only!

Glaive Prime (and all Glaives for that matter) should still get a seriously hard look at their Charge Attack damage though, because it's nowhere close to what the Gunblades can deal, and at a much faster rate too!

Yeah I'm looking forwards to pairing Vaykor Marelok with Dakra Prime or Prisma Skana or maybe Rakta Dark Dagger.

Huh, off-handed melee gun hybridization eh? I think I can work with that to come up with a few "multi-wield only" combi-weapons. Thanks for the Imagination injection Mrs. Rebecca, looking forward to what lies ahead!

I was using the Glaive Prime just yesterday in the Simulacrum for fun with Ivara Navigator.

Was surprised how frequent the bleed procs were, but since I never really used the glaive much before I though it was normal. (Without buff)

Will you also fix charge attacks?

U18 ruined them all and throwing weapons are so annoying to use now.

Thrown melee is getting a boost when timing it correctly similar to Dark Sector, if you throw it in the apex of the charge then it'll receive a significant damage boost.
If it's better than Gunblades in exchange for Gunblades to be more consistent and requiring less skill I won't have a problem with it personally and may give Glaive P another chance, Halikar too if they make it guarantee disarm instead of be chance based.

They plan to map it to the reload key while holding the weapon. Hopefully they can make them faster too.

ah good, forced Slash Status and higher Status has been a thematic feature missing from Glaive for quite some time.
not sure how i feel about forced Knockdown but i'll take a look and see when that applies to decide.

 

Edit:

that's definitely not forced Knockdown. that's forced Impact as well as the forced Slash.
but don't fix it - that's actually better. the Stagger is better than Knockdown, as Knockdown would make it harder to hit the Enemy in the future.

plus Knockdown would be superceding the forced Ragdoll Kestrel has.
