Jamira... you did read the part about it being the tt version of that series yes? If you look at what they did for the handguns and how the "evolve" a they grow in power and skill needed to use them one would assume that they get the same treatment. After all David even stated that they at least grow in size as they evolve. From what I gather from the picture and what David stated this is not much more then a glorified knife AKA machette. Personally I am glad it is not technicly to specs for what we think is a "traditional" sword would be. I will welcome variation in GFX for weapons not only so Arkaidia is not as drably cut and pasted like Calypso is but also so we can recognise exactly what someone is using by its look. Might be useful to know someone has a A.S.I. 50 in their hand and not a A.S.I. 10 before you go poking them with a stick in pvp.
