For the past little while now I've been thinking of making a Knight. After doing some research I've put a personal answer to the Sword Vs. Axe debate I've seen over 100's of servers. Personally I like an Axe on a Knight solely based off aesthetic reasons but perhaps a sword is better, if you can convince me of course! I want to know what you guys (and girls) like better? Maybe you like a sturdy sword better for PvP? Let me know! I'm still having trouble picking one! They're both so great :3

in this server a 2-H axe Templar can use Sky Splitter and Maelstrom Strike whilst a 2-H sword Templar can only use Sky Splitter. This is one reason to pick an axe

Hi, Hello. Since this is a discussion, let me try to help too.

I pvp/siege with swords. If you plan on sieging, I suggest you get 2. One for str and one for sta. (I suggest the legion 2h sword for the sta one.)

Let me state the pros and cons in using a sword or an axe. This is based solely on my experience and opinion so please correct me if I'm wrong.

Sword ~
Pros:
- the use of the sky splitter skill
- speed is slow
- lot's of cool models (you could take this out of the equation)
Cons:
- you need to click on the enemy to cast the sky splitter skill

Axe ~
Pros:
- the use of the power stomp skill, sky splitter skill and the maelstrom strike skill
- the mercenary buff, smite axe, increases the defense. (Just a tiny bit though)
- one does not need to click on an enemy to cast the maelstrom strike skill.
Cons:
- speed is super slow
- When casting the maelstrom strike skill, the templar loses mobility. It might get caught in a cross-fire. That's not entirely a bad thing though, but it's risky.
- Same goes for the power stomp skill.

So it all boils down to your playstyle really. I prefer using swords. Plus, in my honest opinion, the cast time between the maelstrom strike and the sky splitter is quite of the same speed. I could be wrong though. Feel free to correct me.

Alright, here are my thoughts Smile The skill cast time shouldn't determine wether you choose sword or axe, because from my experience the differences are so small that I could barely notice them at all. Also, Maelstrom Strike is less effective than Sky Splitter, and especially Shield Bash, I think it's called. I find the AoE skill less effective because you will barely kill anyone in one single hit, at least if you don't sacrifise your hp into damage.

You might wonder about why I just mentioned Shield Bash. It's because I used to deal the exact same damage with Sky Splitter as this Shield skill. In addition, there is a very sexy stun chance that will be useful in siege, and at least in PvP in general.

The only reason why I personally chose sword is because they have awesome models Very Happy

Oh right. Thanks for this info Dinosaurs. At least when I did a damage test of these two skills, the damages were the same, or very very similar with such a small difference that I didn't notice.

Maelstrom Strike should be castable with a sword in an upcoming patch.
