Katana deserve better

That's it. I'm sick of all this "Masterwork Bastard Sword" bullshit that's going on in cRPG right now. Katanas deserve much better than that. Much, much better than that.

I should know what I'm talking about. I myself commissioned a genuine katana in Japan for 2,400,000 Yen (that's about $20,000) and have been practicing with it for almost 2 years now. I can even cut slabs of solid steel with my katana.
Japanese smiths spend years working on a single katana and fold it up to a million times to produce the finest blades known to mankind.
Katanas are thrice as sharp as European swords and thrice as hard for that matter too. Anything a longsword can cut through, a katana can cut through better. I'm pretty sure a katana could easily bisect a kyeldurht wearing full plate with a simple vertical slash.
Ever wonder why medieval Europe never bothered conquering Japan? That's right, they were too scared to fight the disciplined Samurai and their katanas of destruction. Even in World War II, American soldiers targeted the men with the katanas first because their killing power was feared and respected.

So what am I saying? Katanas are simply the best sword that the world has ever seen, and thus, require better stats in cRPG. Here is the stat block I propose for Katanas:
(Wakizashi)
+31 Speed
+48 Pierce
+22 Cut

(Katana)
+43 Speed
+36 Pierce
+75 Cut


Now that seems a lot more representative of the cutting power of Katanas in real life, don't you think?
tl;dr = Katanas need to do more damage in cRPG, see my new stat block.

Yeah, I totally agree with Apsod, and in all honesty all 2handers should get a major buff, because 2h class is the weakest class of the mod.

What I propose.

Katana : +10000 Speed, +100 Pierce Stab, +300000000 Swing damage (Don`t forget that Apsod san can cut steel plate with his katana, TOTAL REALISM)


P.s : I`m pretty sure Thomek will masturbate with my suggestion.

It sure deserves better. Make it unusable by anyone without matching gear (ie tincans wielding katana is just so very wrong and makes me womit blood from disgust).

Ummm... Mate, that aint steel, those are bamboo sticks that "represent" muscle and bone tissue... Maybe your japanese dictionary is wrong man. Bamboo is bamboo and not steel...

Don't think I like the suggestion tbh... right now, barely anyone except the properly themed guys are running around with Katanas. I'd like to keep it that way.
Making that stats that much better would certainly lead to a lot more people using it... Nope, don't like that thought.

Though the stab could use a small upgrade - probably the only bouncy stab left in the whole mod. :)

We all know that even Chuck Norris is using Katanas, so hell yeah Katana needs an upgrade, give it the abilities of the Boom Sticks of Aladin.

After some afterthought I have decided to edit my proposed buffs a little bit.

I cut steel.

Then you're stronger than any medieval samurai, and unfortunately this is a medieval game...

It's such a shame Western Medieval Blacksmiths deliberately rushed their swords and didn't put any work into them unlike those far eastern Katanas...

Also such a shame that Samurai trained their whole life for battle and perfected their muscle memory for combat whereas Medieval Kyeldurhts clearly never trained or gave a shit...
