Dransik Weapons

This is not a pathetic attempt to get Lothgar to make more non-sword weapons! I repeat:
Lothgar! You don't have to Make More Non-Sword Weapons because of this document!

With that out of the way, I've compiled a list of the weapons of Dransik and did some calculations on them. For those of you who hate math just smile and nod. First, I got the average amount of damage the weapon does. ( (low + high) / 2 ). Because the speed of the weapon isn't an actual time assume that in one second a weapon with a speed of 10 can swing 1 time per second. With that base down you can calculate how many times any other weapon can swing per second. (Example: A sword can swing 2 times a second because it has a speed of 5. (10 / 5 = 2). ) Using how quickly the weapon can swing and the average amount of damage it can do I calculated the average amount of damage every weapon can do per second. (This does not take into account skill or strength bonuses.) Here is the table below.

This table is missing three weapons. The Sword of Talazar, The Dark Sword, and the Rune Sword. I left them out because I don't know how much damage the do, but I'm sure it's more than the rest. As you can see from the table, large blades are by far the best weapons in the game. Not only can you do more damage, but you have the added benefit of purchasing them more rapidly as your skill increases making your character advance faster.

I love swords, don't get me wrong, but there are -way- too many and they are much better than the rest of the weapons. So, hopefully, we will see some more non-sword weapons in the near future. *crosses his fingers*

I know I left out damage resistances from items like frost plate and the like, but I didn't want to get too technical.

Do you think I was too subtle?
