View Full Version : [3.5/Pathfinder] Weapon values - any methodical breakdown?

2010-03-18, 09:58 PM
Has anyone done a methodical deconstruction of the basic weapons in the game?

That is, break down all of the rule elements with weapons, like die type, crit type, special abilities and then gave weighted values to all of these elements? Kind of a deconstruction that would create a point buy system for weapons?

I'm just curious about the real value of individual weapons when you go down the rabbit hole and crunch and crunch away with the numbers.

It's a bit messy now, but here (http://community.wizards.com/go/thread/view/75882/19569002/3.5_Weapon_Balance_System) is one that was linked months ago that I happened to bookmark.

Thanks! That does a pretty good job.
