Idea for weapons

I think Smite should be usable across all melee weapons, and that weaponry should compliment spirituality as far as damage output is concerned.

    When I think smite I think big bludgeon weapons like mace and hammer. Its not smite if it has cutting

    Hmm. I always thought of smite as a holy weapon of some kind. As long as it was imbued with some kind of "divine" or "holy/unholy" energy, the weapon could smite.

    To smite is just to hit something really hard. We only attribute it to divinity because of D&D, WoW, and the fact that a god 'smites' things.

    Another reason, I'm sure I'm not the only one that thinks 'Cleric' when I hear the word 'Smite'. Clerics primary weapon is a Mace, when drawn up. That isn't to say they can't use any other weapon, it is just what they are largely depicted as using.

    That being said, I prefer Luminaries using bludgeons, but that is just because my first serious MUD char was a Priest, which used a spiritual mace. It's mostly a nostalgia thing.

    Edit: All this being said, I now want to suggest giving Wayfarers Javelins... because it is a throwing weapon, and also a potential(?) melee weapon.

    Keeping specific weapons specific to specific classes kind of helps with class identity even if it makes you feel LESS special with personal identity. Knights get a bit more wiggle room cause KNIGHTS but cookies CRUMBLE. :warning::cookie::warning:

    I only suggested Javelin because the only class that can really use it is Templar, and they don't use it.
