As with the Swords Page this page contains lots of information about various weapons except where they can be bought and for how much. That will be added later. As far as I know there aren't any melee weapons that are unique to Asherah. Not all these are necessarily available in Asherah at the present time, but all appear in the default FSO .dir files. I'm adding them because a lot of players have those default FSO .dir files and are aware that those weapons exist. We acknowledge they exist, but if we don't have it, we don't have it. If the thing "exists" but we don't have it in the game, you can be confident that it was, in some way, miscoded or there were problems with it that outweighed whatever good there was.

As with the swords, we have listed the ATT power given in the .dir files. The Att Power button on the GUI may give you a different reading and you may notice different readings when you actually use the weapons. We will slowly begin adding test data to each weapon's stats as time allows.

Please note. The ATTPower and MaxAtt figures are base stats only. As noted in the Skills page, on the Donations page, and on several other pages, additional boosts may be given depending on rings, random skill factors, membership in factions or the monster that you're fighting. It's good for showing you relative base strengths between weapons, not to reflect the absolute attpower you will have when you use the weapon.
