some things to note:
old dagger = all daggers
old spear = all spears
Vistarian dual daggers = all dual daggers
shields do not exist to me as a weapons main
and I have never used Castlian (I wish) or Alalean (fuck them) weapons
Now with that out of the way, let me explain the tiers a bit because I feel superior in this topic. After I am done feel free to treat me with some humility but informing me of how wrong I am.
S: No brainer, the sunken sword is widely accepted by all to be the best weapon in WoM due to the sheer fact that it grants mobility. It is a short magic jump that does damage and can likely inflict bleed. It is the best weapon in the game, no ands ifs or buts really.
A: These weapons have range, solid range at that. Honestly Oathkeeper would probably be an S tier weapon if it had the 3 blast Raging Storm instead of the 7 it has now, which really holds it back. Both these weapons play different roles imo, with a bow used more offensively than an oathkeeper which you should save for when your opponent is attacking (specifically with an explosion/beam).
B: These are weapons with solid close range moves and no real range to them. What holds them back, imo, is the lack of skill really required of them. You run up, click a button, no aim required of any kind. Little brain activity needed to make these work. If you can react fast then they’re easy to use and easy to counter. My favorite weapon aesthetically, the Old Sword, is also in this tier. Lastly I’d like to mention the Crossbow, which I just moved from C to B. It isn’t a bad weapon but it is the most skill dependent weapon in this game imo. If you can aim, use it, you’ll S L A Y people with 150~ per shot arrow with little to any punishment options for the opponent.
C: Dual Daggers are probably the best close ranged weapon in the game, but since their range is so short and everyone who PvPs with any level of skill is a frog or something, you’ll never see these being used. Maybe for throwing but I’ll get more into why throwing weapons are crap when I get to F.
D: Solid melee weapons. Nothing really special about them, honestly big boy stick is my second most favorite weapon, behind Old Sword and ahead of the fucking Sunken Sword. They work for NPCs and that’s about it, but I mean, really all the other weapons do too.
F: Throwing weapons. They are the absolute worse weapons in the game. Honestly spear deserves to be in one tier lower all by itself due to just how terrible the weapon is. Small hitbox in melee, thin but not arrow thin hitbox in the air, 10 SECONDS IN BETWEEN EACH THROW. Not to mention if this is your only weapon then you are now defenseless. THE CRAZY PART IS I SEE PEOPLE WITH SPEARS SO GOD DAMN OFTEN. It’s a tell tale sign that, to me, that person doesn’t know crap. Daggers are also just worse versions of dual daggers in every way.
Anyways that’s my weapons tier list. Side from the sunken all of this is probably wrong since I know jack about meta stuff, I’ve just been using these things for 200 hours now so I kinda feel qualified in this department of PvP. Have a nice day to whoever reads this.
