Weapons in blades come in three types: light, versatile, and heavy. Heavy weapons require both hands and cannot be used with a shield. Versatile weapons can be with or without a shield, doing slightly more damage without. Additionally, each weapon has one of three damage types: slashing, cleaving, and bashing. Enemies can resist or be weak to these damage types. For each weapon material, the damage, speed, condition, and block values are calculated in relation to the heavy variants by factors seen in the table below. The three weapon types and three damage types lead to nine permutations, which generally follow this naming convention:

Light Versatile Heavy
Cleaving Hand Axe War Axe Battleaxe
Slashing Dagger Longsword Greatsword
Bashing Light Hammer Mace Warhammer
Damage 0.6 0.8 / 0.92 1.0
Speed 2.07 1.33 1.0
Condition 0.5 0.75 1.0
Block 0.15 0.35 0.45

Materials[edit]

Each generic weapon has a material that determines how it is crafted or how it is tempered.
