When choosing a weapon class you will want to take into consideration the armor it uses. Each class has strengths and weaknesses to other classes. It is important to realize these and adjust your approach in battle accordingly. There are 3 armor types in Conqueror's Blade.
Longsword & Shield
A Western-style longsword and heater shield. Dominate melee battles with a brutal combination that balances offensive and defensive capabilities.
Shortsword & Shield
A single-edged, one-handed sword with a leather or wooden grip. Paired with a shield, the short sword is a favourite with infantry.
The glaive is a polearm consisting of a heavy blade atop a wooden haft. Favored for its considerable stopping power, it is particularly effective against lightly-armored infantry.
Poleaxes provide a fearsome combination of reach, power, and mass. These are favored by heavy infantry such as halberdiers and knights.
The Maul is a heavy, two-handed hammer that takes great strength and patience to wield. Its considerable heft can shatter ranks, and easily cleave even the most resilient defenses asunder.
This thrusting spear can dish out long-reaching attacks to keep enemy units out of melee range, while its devastating combos hammer the point home.
Keep enemies at a relatively safe distance thanks to the spear's long reach and sharp deterrent. It is effective against both cavalry and infantry units, and skilled warriors can take on multiple enemies at once.
The nodachi is a two-handed sword with an incredibly long and elegant blade. Usually made by a master swordsmith, they are prized weapons that honor their bearers.
The musket is a heavy matchlock firearm with a smoothbore barrel. These ranged weapons command respect for their lethality.
Give your enemies twice as much trouble. Suitable for assassins and infiltrators, use the dual blades to deliver an ambidextrous assault that will leave enemies flailing.
The short bow is less cumbersome and tiring than the regular bow and is best-suited to close-range combat and swift but sure attacks.
The bow is a powerful ranged hunting weapon used by archers. Drawback the string, and let fly a volley that will put a serious dent in enemy morale, and a few holes in their armor too.
