How Weapons Work [on 3S]

Generally, the first 5 points are to get basic mastery of the weapon type. Then in the case of Axe and Sword, there is a potential to put 1 point into the two-handed style. Finally, you can put 5 points more into each of physical (E/B) and non-physical (other) damage. (Except for Bare Hands, which always does blunt damage, so there it is rolled into the base skill)

The first four points will be taught by Viggen. The fifth point of basic mastery will be taught by the applicable weapons specialist trainer.

Two-handed style will be taught by Viggen (Sword/Axe only)

The five points of Other or Physical damage type (or Bare Hands 6-10) will be taught by Viggen or the applicable weapons specialist trainer.

How Weapons Work [on 3K]

The first four points of each weapon are taught by Viggen. The 5th point is taught by the weapon specialist. (For Bare Hands, the specialist also teaches 6-10.) The specialists are the same as on 3S.

The disciplines (Physical/Other) are not per-weapon, but apply to all weapons. The first four points are taught by Viggen, and the 5th in each 1h discipline by Sir Prilmas.

Disciplines :

 Other             : 5/5   - Viggen to 4, Sir Prilmas Master
 Physical          : 5/5   - Viggen to 4, Sir Prilmas Master
