I came up with a character concept inspired by this image

And while I know that I can refluff some other weapon to serve as the armblade, I would like to homebrew an exotic weapon similar to thoose armblades.

My firs ideas were 1d10 damage critical 19-20x2
providing 1 shield bonus to AC and be allowed to apply your complete str bonus even in off-hand attacks.

Too powerful? not enough to warrant exotic weapon title....

Also if someone wants to help me with the phrasing since I suck at phrasing stuff.

Thanks in advance

Can't see pic but I would assume some sort of shield blade/weapon like the orc have in LOTR.

Threat range of 19-20x3? um sure if it was 1d6 but at 1d10 that is a bit OP... AC bonus ontop of those stats? I would say only if magical +2 or so and only for off hand which would only get half str bonus.

What you have there is a very powerful set of stats, that can easily be exploited.

High damage, large threat range, high crit multiplier, AND full strength is just to many abilities along the same line.

What about this?

Exotic Weapon
1d8 Slashing (20/x3)
+2 Shield Bonus to armor class (unstacking)
+4 Shield Bonus to armor class when taking a Total Defense action

hmmm sounds reasonable. Thanks Djinn though it was supposed to be 19-20 x2

Weird. It didn't work for me, either.
