    @max18400 sounds good, lets hope Ubi will add some of the ideas within the next updates. There are many Thread regarding lack of armor diversification in general and unrealistic looking armors. And about the one-handed swords... well I think we don't need to talk about that anymore, there were already topics about this even before the game was released

    @fgx1988 definitely haha enough has been said. Ubisoft have acknowledged both issues now on other threads so hopefully they'll be added with the next update (which is apparently massive, new features, skills and weapons etc).

    @max18400 when they will address these topics I think it will upgrade the game by a lot. After that all they have to do is make the weapons not grow anymore when you take them in your hands.

    @fgx1988 definitely, the game atm us good, but when the bugs are patched (I have feeling this is their priority atm) avd add those features, the game will go from good to great

    I can understand the one handed swords threads. It would be cool to have regardless of any historical significance.

    As far as the rest, my inventory is full of all kinds of stuff. Plenty of weapons and armor to choose from. They are just well earned and don't drop off of everything thing you smash and kill.

    @Quor321 yeah there are a few to choose from. That said, majority of them look like fantasy or viking fantasy armor, not historically looking armor. The closest sets are the carolingian and einihare (I can't spell it... Ngl) sets. The raven clan and brigadine looks good, but fits into the fantasy viking stuff. Usually, assassin's creed gets a really good balence between fantasy and history. Oddysey, for example, if we look away from the shear volumn of stuff, had a nice mix of clearly Greek fantasy armor and historically accurate armor, such as the bronze cuiresses and linthorax armour etc. Vahalla seems to just almost completely ignore the history stuff in the armour and weapon appearances with a few exceptions.

    I'm enjoying this game a lot, however what happened to the one handed Long Sword and why is it not in the game as a playable weapon? I do like the variety that you gave us, but leaving out one of the most iconic viking weapons and one of the most recognizable swords in history of arms was not a good idea. There is a bunch of Great Swords in game and those ones were not even available during the time frame that we are in in the game. They only appeared with the development of metallurgy in the later ages. Feel free to correct me as I'm not a historian. Long Swords, however, were the weapon of choice both for dueling or as a part of a formation.
    I guess from a point of a game play mechanics reskin of a one handed Axe could work with addition of some animations and finishers. Eventhough, Long Sword should be a faster and more agile weapon due to the center of mass on it. Bearded axe = more impact / damage; Long Sword = more speed / evasion / block. It's just a suggestion, I'm sure you are way more informed on history of melee weapons and how to transfer it to game play then me.
    I'm sure this topic was raised before as a lot of us would want it as a part of future updates.
    Thank you for the game again. I'm enjoying it very much. And for the love of Odin, give us a Long Sword!

    It's been raised a lot, there's been a petition. Ubisoft haven't said why they didn't put them in the game for Eivor to use, but have issues a response saying its been passed onto the devs and that they well try to add them in soon

    @max18400 I didn't know about the petition. Well that should attract their attention. Good to know that. Thanks, Max

    The had the choice of adding the one handed swords and replayability to their game or adding bugs.
    They've chosen the bugs.
    But more seriously, dont complain: you have flails and two handed weapons. Totally anachronistic along with all the modern political correctness.

    Yes during that time period there were 2 handed swords. There have always been 1 and 2 handed swords during the time period. The reason they left them out is because Vikings were known to use the most powerful weapons which means they would prefer 2 handed over 1 handed weapons. The only 1 handed weapons they used is the axe because they were sent to the afterlife with them.

    @leoraptor1979 that is not true. At all. Sorry. Two handed swords didn't exist until the 13th century. Its a well known historical fact. They used axes, spears, seaxes and one handed swords. If anything, theybpopularised using axes in warfare. There are is so much evidence supporting this. There is absolutely no evidence, archaeological or historical that the vikings used two handed swords, flails or war hammers. There's more evidence that wealthier vikings used one handed swords over most weapons. You can look at viking warrior graves in Ingleby and Repton in the UK to show this as they were buried with their swords (which were one handed)
    I've literally spent five years of my life obtaining two degrees on the subject of the viking age and specifically warfare so I do actually know what I'm talking about and I'm sorry to say what you're saying is just not true.

    @max18400 Yeah, it is an issue a lot of people have complained about, but this is like the Umpteen millionth post about one handed swords.
