I made the decision to switch from Ranged Laser Pistoleer to Longblades because all throughout playing the game I had an affinity for it but never answered to it until now. Doing my research and all, going through data from entropedia and the auction, I came up with this list. From ~200 longblade weapons in game, I deleted the Limited ones and the Developer weapons and ended with 70 weapons. Then I removed all that you need level 100 for to max and this is the result. To the right you can see the availability in game. The ones with NO are mostly from weapons that either have very little auction data, most likely due to trading outside the auction on top of some that are rare or unique (Genesis Rainbow Sword/Improved Mako Fal). I removed the (L) weapons from the list because for me personally I'm happier with a weapon I can keep. I removed the Dev ones for obvious reasons. The level 100+ weapons I removed because getting a skill that high in Longblades is really hard. All results are unamped/unenhanced. This gives a very small list of options and all those options are for Longblades skills below level 50. I totally understand the advantage of having a ranged weapon, as a lot of melee players do have a puller. That does not take away that I view Longblades as an underdeveloped weapon range. I do know there are often (L) longblades on the auction that are not only on a very low MU that require skills over level 50. But who doesn't want to have a nice unl weapon you don't have replace after a few hunts? What are your thoughts? I am fully aware that the top 3 are not able to be sold in the auction.
