This has come up in multiple threads, so I figure we should actually address it.
There are many who will get up in arms over special hits:
- "It isn't era accurate"
- "Chain stun from spears is OP"
- OMG CONC BLOWS WTF?
The fact of the matter is that weapon special hits made dexxers infinitely more viable. (note: I don't think that dexxers aren't option right now at all.) I think they're very much so underused in GvG when they shouldn't be. Be that as it may, I think they would look more attractive to serious PvP groups if they had the ability to stun their opponent for two seconds or hit at 150% damage with their war hammer or drop their opponents mana IN HALF.
Basically I want to center the discussion on this in a thread devoted to it and not in a thread devoted to 10 other things.
Personally, I'm not sure if I want them or not. I'm swaying towards "no" though.
