For Greek Players, a few words about me:
I was holding out to level pug post 2.0. Both of these weapons make me want to level now.
Garuda is definitely the better of the two, but the crafted version is fun.
Though I wouldn't fault anyone for not liking either. It's all personal taste.
I am so sick of these ridiculously horrible Pugilist weapons.. I can't even play mine anymore because I can't have a decent weapon without looking like a full scale jackass. Square-Enix needs to knock this BS off..
Or, if they wanted to take it a little farther, they could do something like the Claws they already have in game and make them retract. Perhaps somethings that rest around the writs and expands around the fists when drawn. Maybe do something like Advent children where its just a braces pair of knuckles with a secondary impact device built into them? Even the Garuda claws would be decent if they weren't the size of the Lalafels head..
There is no reason for PUG weapons to be massive and ridiculous. I don't know about you, but I dont want to be the laughing stock of the DD world because my weapons look like they are going to snap my writs at any moment. Worse yet, how friggin' pathetic is it to literally give us Cubes? Seriously, Cubes? SE didn't wanna step its game up and round some edges? Pathetic.
Plus there are claws that extend when you draw them. Check out the Garuda preview.
If each weapon is going to be unique, some will have to look a little strange. Look at the crafted LNC weapon. It unfurls into a fence. God forbid some things are just fun for the sake of being fun.
And yes, if SE released a line of fruit-shaped weapons I would support it as long as my Thm can get a wand with a coconut with a lime wedge in it on the top.
I guess they took there inspiration from minecraft lol.
SE needs to learn how to draw hands before they can make decent looking h2h weps
