Weapon statistics

The important statistics on weapons are DR and weapon max damage. HR is not of much importance.

  • For wields and weapons needing two hands (like hafted, two-handed, double and chain weapons), max is more important. A rough rule of thumb is that 1 max is equal to 2 DR.
  • For offhand, since you only hit once with it, DR is more important, since the extra DR will help with the damage you do with the wield as well. Since bld can hit multiple times with offhand as well, it is good to concentrate on max for offhand as well in this case.

The above means that for wields, it might be better to farm some "worse" weapons (something which has a lower natural DR modifier), if you cannot afford to get the "best" weapon.

Maximums and minimums for hero weapons

For weapons that are in the 44-50 range, the most common max is 47, 50 and 44 are very rare, as they appear 1-2% of the time. 45 and 49 is about 5%?

One-handed weapons 44 - 50
One-or-two handed weapons 44 - 50 Can be wielded in two hands with double wield, improving damage.
