I have two ideas of Saljuq I'd like to make instead of the massively underpowered version in Canopy right now. I'd like your input as to which you'd rather see:

Saljuq-Powerful
Two-Handed
12-108 + 1-9/level
+1 Quick Strike
+1 AP
+1 Defense

Saljuq-Lighter
One-Handed
12-96 + 1-8/level
+2 Quick Strike
+2 AP
+25% to Hit in Melee
+25% Evasion

Except for the fact that the two-handed one would have a greater maximum damage, I can't see why one would not go for the one-handed version. With a free shield arm, they could equip the miracle shield (or any other super strong defensive shield), and the 2AP and evasion is always nice.

I'm in favor of the 1H version. I'd never take the 2H one over Maximilian.

Exactly. Canopy already has a fine two-handed power weapon in Maximilian, and really nice one-handed weapons are in short supply.

I'd never take that first version over the second, even if both were one-handed.

I'll go for the more powerful one. If i was it, I'd rather go in and chop up the party other than stay away and evade.

Couldn't call either of them underpowered. You trying to create more weapons other scenario writers will dread?

Btw, you can chop quicker with the second one, Jade. Evasion skills are for diving into melee; using them to stay away would be a waste. With all the bonus AP you can maneuver straight to the archers and spellcasters, take 'em down fast, then handle the melee fighters at your leisure.

Saljuq. Named after the Turks.

Naw, she has a Blessed Greatsword (which you can pick up if you kill her). Admittedly, BGs aren't bad at all- they beat most other 2-handers of all shapes and sizes.

It just looks like a Saljuq in the graphics ^_^

edit: I never killed her so far ...
And you couldn't enter Fortress Grenze without Moerder, non?

I mean, if you kill Moerder in Schwertschrein and loot her body before you are instantly killed.
