New Weapons - Thank You!

If you play a melee class, you've got it good. There is almost no weapon you can't use. There are lots of powers, lots of stats, and lots of combos for you. Not so for ranged classes. There are plenty of great weapons, but range severely limits what we can use. Three range simply rules out a weapon. It will make one totally unfit for PvP and force them to struggle extremely through PvE.

Looking at the weapons from the Dreadnaught, I was initially very unexcited in the Test Realm. However, the changes made between then and the release to the live realm changed everything. We now have a 5-range weapon that we don't have to be a Champion to buy/use. We have all kinds of options. Now, the Staff of Power, Darkmoor Deathspitter, Swivel Gun, and several of the new Haywire muskets are competing for our attention.

This is exactly what I've loved about Pirate101. There's not one gear set that everyone is using or farms for, there is a huge variety. Now that's true with Pirate101 ranged weapons again. We're even seeing people start to mess with Melee-Musk again. I just wanted to note that I'm very excited about the new weapons in the pack and from the gauntlet. Thanks to the team for their hard work!

I agree. The design team seems to be looking out for all of us and it is highly appreciated.

I agree. Shooty/stabby weapons seem to have been left out in both the haywire line and the ashes pack. Disappointed.

Pretty sure there's a shooty/stabby in the Haywire series.

There is one weapon combination missing though: Staffy/Smashy. I've collected all 19 of the dreadnaught weapons, why not make it an even 20 by adding a Staffy/Smashy?

I got this weapon type from the Dreadnaught, so I can confirm that it does exist :D

I stand corrected; 'haywire armada blade' dropped this morning. Happy.
