TWC weapon

The official GemStone IV encyclopedia.
Jump to: navigation, search

There are two types of TWC weapon scripts; one for one-handed edged weapons with fluff scripts that reference a hollow pommel which can hold a dagger called Hkala weapons, and another for one-handed edged weapons that require a high degree of skill in the Two Weapon Combat skill. They are both tiered scripts which can be unlocked by Xerria.
