Really hoping new set of weapons include a Hammer capable of rivaling Gele axe (idea of including a sword in embossed weapon set was dumb). Also, I'm hoping this new dragon is not just another Mordris painted in black or other colors. lol. This better be a two headed dragon or a Night Fury! :p
Jokes aside, seriously, we have had too many dragons that are just different shades of Mordris. Something unique like the tower dragons or even better looking would be nice.
That would be really bad idea. Its not that weapons cant rival gele axe, for example edl sword. Its that if ur a warrior with an axe, u also have 2-3 fates/bt axes rings, 1-2 havocs. Now if u get a hammer as the new end-game wep, there goes all ur gear away to waste, and u have to start from scratch. And even if the new boss does drop hammer rings and braces, u will need to use carnages/prot braces and necro living bones rings until u get these rings, not to mention split them with the others. Not to mention, Crush lure is ice magic based while Slash lure is fire magic based along side Pierce lure, making S-lure usually stronger than C-lure, so a real nerf in short term (and even relatively long term, knowing this game's drop rates). More than it being quite the nerf, it'll hit dps warriors twice when they have to waste for example dkp/gold/whatever for not only new weapon, but 2-3 new rings and 2 new braces.
In other words, adding new weapon that isnt axe for warriors in the current timeline is actually one of the worst ideas possible for us the dps warriors. I'll take a forced choice over forced change.
