List of weapon stats?

Post by rasiel »

Hey guys, new player here!

I'm wondering if anyone has a list of the weapon stats. There's a list that shows all the items and their costs but it doesn't show how good each kind of weapon is. For example, a hawkblade costs the same as a Kael's axe but the axe is way better. I'm guessing it does about 40pts dmg on average.

Thanks for any help!

There are some item lists on the main webpage of the Adventurers' Guild but I think no stats like damage are listed there (only cost and AC).

The Bard's Tale Wiki actually has a pretty complete item list for Tales of the Unknown - including the damage (and hit bonus) associated with the weapons.

If you do a search for Items, the top article that'll come up is Tales of the Unknown: Items. That should have what you're looking for!
