I just started with the rapier last night. I thought a sword drop I found on my first day of playing was a rapier but turns out it was a longsword. Working on getting a feel for it now, I like it so far although the light attack combos seem to be a little longer animation wise than what I was used to with the longsword.
Has anyone played around with the Life staff? I just crafted one yesterday and I love it, I think it might be my favorite weapon so far. I think I might be retiring my Fire staff for it, which isn’t really clicking for me. I liked the Fireball skill but I haven’t been a big fan of the other ones so far. I have a feeling that weapon will excel in group scenarios but for me being solo, it’s just been awkward.
I’ll need to try the ice gauntlet next and see if that works better for me than the Fire staff. A very brief glance made it seem like it might be since there are slowing and CC effects which might help me keep guys at range as a solo player.
It increases your carrying capacity at thresholds but I’m not sure about weight of armor or how that’s calculated. If it’s a percentage of your total weight capacity taken by armor it should, but no idea how it works.
And the game shows all the armor info on your equipment screen. I think it’s on the left side of the screen if I remember correctly.
