Edged Weapons (OHE) are some of the most common melee weapons in Elanthia. They're easy and require little training to use, as evidenced by training point costs. The various one-handed edged weapons are the backsword, bastard sword, broadsword, dagger, estoc, falchion, handaxe, longsword, main gauche, rapier, scimitar, and short sword. Two hybrid weapons that require training in OHE include the katar and katana.

Weapon Damage Type Ratios

This table contains the edged weapon critical damage type percentage for successful attacks (based on player research). As an example, the dagger will result in 62.5% puncture critical damage and 37.5% slash critical damage on average for all attacks, or a puncture to slash damage ratio of 5 to 3. Daggers do not do crush critical damage.

Note: Because of smallish sample sizes for determining some of these percentages, they may not be precise in all cases, but should be close enough to give a decent representation of the damage ratios.
