I know, that there will be some new weapons in WotR, but does anybody know, if we’re going to get Katana & Wakizashi?
I would personally hope they save those for a Jade Regent based game. And I say that as someone who actually would like a katana.
A game set in Tian Xia would be most awesome, but somehow I don’t want to wait until we get one to build a char that I’ve in mind - not to mention that even though very rare they’re not completely unknown/unavailable in other regions of Golarion. Having options is always good.
I had two things in mind:
- getting all the asian-themed stuff out at once will probably allow them to do a better job of it
- absent item creation feats (cue hysterical laughter), you’ll be stuck for long periods with no upgrade item. In the alpha, you get to the end of chapter 3 and never once lay eyes on a gnome hook hammer (loot or vendor) other than the one your companion comes with (+1 cold iron doesn’t quite cut it at L12).
If they decide to add it I won’t argue with them but if I were the decision maker I probably wouldn’t do it. unless the decision was already made to make loot a lot more random than we’ve seen to date.
There was a short reply to an answer in the most recent developer Q&A and according to it, no new weapon types will be added. No Katana, Wakizashi or really anything else. The Hellknight Plate is the only new thing gear-wise in WotR.
Thanks a lot for the info.
False. I sold at least 5 or 6 of them. I think one was +1 cold iron with +1d3 damage to chaotic creatures (think it is in Lost Bastion before Boss fight) and another +2 had holy. Others were probably normal +2, or +3. I think also Woljif sells one more.
Woljif never came back to me after the gargoyle raid (probably because I forgot to talk to him between solving the frame up and attacking the grey garrison), and I’m glad to see someone found any. Possibly I didn’t do enough exploration outside the main areas. I did go through and not find one and was taken aback by the exotic weapon vendor not carrying any (given some of what he did carry, I kind of thought filling holes like this was the reason for his existence).
The question about new weapon types is near the bottom …
- Will any new weapon types be added?
Ooofff really no new weapon types will be added that’s idk kinda a major bummer…
