fighter end game weapon (spear vs 2h vs one handed)

why do end game pvpers fighters like 2h and spear so much withal 1 handed weapon with shield you got an extra of [20] and if you think its not much every little bits counts. And with shield you get more slots. I want to know why

Spear/2Handers got more aoes than a blunt shield build do in endgame.
And also more attack, so over all best build for open PvP. Blunt shield are more a 1 vs 1 build/Low Zone build.

Warriors and Fighters specialise in using 2-handed weapons and spears, so most of their AoEs and various other skills require using one of those types of weapons to use it.

End-game, the only notable one-handed weapon that could be used are the 79 one-handed blunt weapons that Guardians use. Using a shield does mean more slots, yes, but overall you would get more damage end game when using the 79 sword or spear.

A lot of Fighters use the spear because its damage is significantly higher than the sword (and looks better in my opinion), and you won't lose too much attack speed with a Flash Lapis linked into your spear, making it a much more viable option.

You do better off with a spear. Using all the spear upgrades you get from your spear mastery to increase the speed of the weapon and power, plus adding flash and swift, means you no longer need melon ice cream or have to worry about your speed if you lose EB after death, because you will always have max speed without the need of flash rings and other extras.

Also means you have the two ring slots for upto 100-110 str from goddess rings with xmas and LL lapis included. Or just as useful are the full synergy bonus if you use 75+ jewelry with LL and xmas lapis etc, you then get the extra 110 str and 90 dex stats, although to be honest, I prefer full goddess accessory's until the next episode.

Plus, spears are sexy and have that awesome reddish glow and pretty lethal over all other weapons.

In ep 6, weapon enchants has 'hidden' attack bonus that no number of craft link in shield can compensate for using 1H unlike in ep 5. I think Spears have the highest bonus compared to other fighter weapons.

2H is a favourite due to past preferences. The range between minimum and maximum damage is smaller than Spears so the damage is more consistent. I find the attack animation of 2H to be faster than spears but that could be just me. Also Basic Mode might choose 2H over Spears to save on 7 skill points for Spear Mastery level 3.

Spear is the preferred weapon of choice for ep6 so far due to better enchant scaling bonus and level 79 Spears having +1 speed compared to other levels of spears. This means that level 79 spear with maxed spear mastery has same attack speed as a 79 2H with maxed 2H mastery.

Spears and 2H has the same number of AoE attacks with only 1 difference. 2H has wide Arc which lowers defence while Spears has explosive sting which gives a fixed amount of attack bonus.

BAM BAM my gingerbread went BOOMZ!

No kidding...I honestly didnt know that about 79 spears.

@LordKotaro- Flash and Swift Stack attack speed when linked in 1 weapon? I was always told they didnt stack so I never tried.

Yes, they do stack. Swift increases attack speed by 2, Flash by 1, so when both of them are linked in the same weapon, it obviously increases it by 3 Razz

To tell you the truth, I had no clue. Just tried it. Works anyway, as Pray mentioned. No more melon and worrying about EB or flash rings, which is reason enough to link them, if the opportunity is available.
