Description[]

"A beautifully fashioned halberd from the foundry of Master Smith Grimward Brucke. Also a life-lesson in not allowing one's five-year-old to name one's creations"

- In-game description, Doom on a Stick.

Advantages[]

  • The swiss army knife of melee weapons, the Halberd has attack combinations for cleaving through hordes, for precision poking at long range, and for heavy anti-armoured damage.
  • This weapon's long range can be ideal for more vulnerable careers like the Huntsman, allowing you to safely engage in melee combat from behind a dedicated tank character.
  • This weapon's long range is very helpful against Beastmen hordes, who can outrange melee attacks from other weapons.

Disadvantages[]

  • Ideal combos vs. hordes, armoured elites and monsters mix Light, Heavy and Push Attacks in various ways, which makes this weapon comparatively hard to use.
  • Low overall mobility, low stagger values, slow cleaving attacks and limited horizontal attack arcs can leave you especially vulnerable if surrounded. The Mercenary's career skill can mitigate this weakness.

Attacks[]

Light attacks:

  1. Right to left swing
  2. Stab
  3. Overhead

Heavy attacks:

  1. Stab
  2. Right to left swing

Push attack:

  1. Overhead

Double Overhead combo:

Notes[]

The heavy stab of the halberd has the longest range out of any of Kruber's melee weapons.
