    Considering that warriors swing swords like battle axes I can't see why it would be an issue besides some art changes.

    lets hope it works out

    And still, there are some people out there, who doesnt focus on the weapons that gives you advantages or whatever. We are some, and you can call us roleplayers or whatever you like, who wants to have the freedom to choose their own weapons... Who knows that they'll not do high damage with a certain weapon, but who loves the way their character looks.
    So please, dont think that you know how every gamer wants their character to work and look. This is not a "irrational complaint" - this is my opinion.

    Yeah, but there aren't very many of you. this is one of those times that you have to take the hit when you make a game that is built for a wide audience.

    I'm sorry, but it is irrational. Attempting to hide it behind "opinion" proves it. You know that it does not make any sense but are trying to justify it anyway.

    You and me are never going to agree on this matter, so lets just end it here.

    <Mod Monocle> I believe it is a good idea that when one side of an argument says "Let's end this here" to actually let it end there than continue on the downward spiral. Let's keep out the mudflinging and off-topic bickering, shall we? </Mod Monocle>

    Are you asking for this from a cosmetic standpoint? Would it make a difference if you got a greataxe that does exactly the same thing as a sword? From a mechanics perspective, even, you'd probably be tied a certain weapon due to whatever talent-esque thing they roll out so that'd be a no-go on shield and pistol if you wanted to be say... a warrior bringing in the DPS.

    EDIT: So I admit I was quick to reply and didn't read through this forum entirely. Seems like you are asking them for simply cosmetics. So, yeah, I get you OP. With a bit of patience I'm sure they'll add in some snazzy new looks!

    Honestly don't think they have enough time to overhaul the class systems again like this within their time frame. They are working furiously on a lot of other systems/content as well. Attempting to make a 3rd and sweeping round of changes to classes would set the game back. So, totally separate from the pros or cons of multi-weapon options for classes, I'd say there's little to no chance of seeing a change in classes weapon options at launch.

    *the fact that we have the re-release for the classes at this point makes me feel like classes are, generally, where they want them. It is beta and the nuances of the various skills could change but I wouldn't expect any such extreme overhauls.

    I play a rogue in wow this doesn't really bother me in the least....

    I don't see how one weapon type bothers people even for roleplaying a warrior holding a 2h sword fits idk.

    So i was thinking about only one weapon per class and watching a video of someone doing a dungeon and i came to this. I main tanks preferably Warrior type classes they fit me well not giving a <REDACTED> running in yelling YOLO and being the best. HERE is the thing i LOVE having a shield and HUGEEE armor so i just look like a badass and i feel in this game they have no shield and it makes me sad :( I don't like the whole two hand sword tanking thing i prefer to block! Any news on a shieldclass that we can see?

    No shield class is comming.

    Warrior is closest to that. All classes have a ''shield'' (the blue bar), and warriors have abilities that gives them a temporarely plasma shield (during the ability).

    Also go use the ''search'' button...for this is one of those subject that has the most threads about it...

    I really hope they make a class that uses a shield. Or tanking won't really feel like tanking... just hold aggro.

    You've obviously never played as a Feral/guardian Druid, Brewmaster Monk, or Blood Death Knight in WoW then. Actually, you can go back even farther than that. There have always been tank classes that don't use a shield and they have always been as viable as those with shields. If it's a personal preference thing, I understand. But to say that the only thing to do if a tank doesn't have a board on its arm is "just hold aggro" then you are sorely mistaken.

    You do have a shield like previous posters have stated. It's just not a physical object on your arm. (Thank god)

    Feral Druid, Death Knight, Bounty Hunter just to name a few don't have shields and were also tanks.

    I don't understand why Warriors can only use big swords. Why not big hammers and axes? Requires the exact same animations.

    It still require different sounds + hit/swing animations + weapon animations etc.

    Don't expect people having a cut when you hammer them down, but instead expect them to be squished.

    Swords will have a more ''cut'' like animation. They wouldn't share the exact animations...that would be bad design anyway.

    If they did not properly animate them all people would probably complain even more. For instance having a PSI ability that does not have the animation for a specific weapon model etc. Though at this point I agree with what a lot of people have been saying here. The devs have already said there are no plans for multiple weapon types at launch. It is kind of one of those things that people are venting about that will not change.

    I don't see why they wouldn't share the same animations. Your sword won't actually cut someone in half...you know that right? It's just damage. Your weapon makes contact, there's a little flash and numbers pop on the screen. Exact same animations work for both.
