What the "Best Weapon" is, is really a matter of opinion, if your going up against an enemy with high armor, than you might want a weapon with high armor penetration, if you going up against a swashbuckler with low armor but high damage, you might want a weapon with high damage to take him out quickly. In my opinion, blades of shade are the best weapons for swashbucklers, and the axe of the minotaur lords is the best for buccaneers and privateers, don't know about the others though.

The praetorian spear found in the Ithica dungeon is the best weapon. It has great damage and gives armor piercing stats. Not even the blades of shade are better than it. It's a smashy weapon.

My goodness I think this deserves an award for most time spent and most helpful details and awesome links put into a post to help pirates. You must be exhausted.
This is beyond well done. I think I am gonna have to start calling you The Professor.
This is stunning work. *Gives gift certificate for basket of carbs and sweets to replenish all the energy lost creating this fine post from the Bakeries of The Highlander Fox*

Thank you Chrissy. Although it didn't take quite as long as you would think. Mainly because I had 3 or 4 internet tabs open to the different weapons and creatures subcategories on the wiki site. I just typed the whole thing up and at the end added all of the hyperlinks by quickly switching back and forth between the different tabs, copying and pasting the web pages and adding the hyperlinks. After the first few times it went relatively fast- well maybe not too fast. Only problem is that I wanted to try to put it on the PHP thread but I know that we are not supposed to just copy and paste to repost a post. One thing is for sure though, I probably won't be attempting it again anytime soon...or maybe I just might be crazy enough to try. Maybe an exception could be given and I can repost it with some slight changes.

All the goodies from "The Highlander Fox's" will be well received and you must have been the fly on the wall, knowing that is what I needed, seeing as I downed quite a few cups of Mountan Dew and a few gratuitous snacks.

Thank you for the vote of confidence, I think I am working my way up to creating some guides on central...we shall see.

I forgot to add one to the Melee high damage list- ninja pirate mentioned it as a great option and it looks pretty awesome, so here are the stats and links.

Axe of the Minotaur Lords- 167-279 base damage (boosted by strength). Dropped by Pholcos

Enjoy the new weapons...after a LOT patience of course waiting for the drops.

You are very welcome privateerking. I am happy to have helped you. As you may have noticed, I put the guide on the PHP thread too and I hope to add a new weapon guide for any future content and worlds once they arrive and the great weapons are discovered. After playing through and finishing whatever the new content that is sure to be unveiled very soon (ooh, I do hope), I will be sure to post an update on PHP.

Anyways, again glad to have assisted you...now go have some fun doing damage with the that massive minotaur axe.
