Most weapons impose some sort of strength requirement in order to wield. This can be calculated as the weight of a weapon multiplied by 10 and reduced by 10. E.g. a sword of weight 8 would take 70 strength to wield. You can check the weight of a weapon by using 'i weight'.
As noted, some weapons require two hands, which restricts the user from using a shield or offwielding (dual-wielding) another weapon. The remainder of the weapons listed are one-handed weapons.
Most weapons fit the above category, and can be accessed by using either the weapons name, an alias, the type of weapon (bow or dagger), or just 'weapon'.
Basic weapon types
There are nine basic types of weapons (excluding the natural weaponry of monsters and special weapons used for quests) on Tsunami. They are listed below:
- 2-hsword (2 handed)
- Bow (2 handed)
- Polearm (2 handed)
- Staff (2 handed)
- Spear (2 handed)
If you have two swords in your inventory, and want to wield the second one, you can type 'wield sword 2' to wield that sword. The numbers are used in the order items are listed in the inventory, so the weapon on the top of the list is the first weapon accessed.
For example, if this was your inventory:
a large curved bow a small short sword a small mace a quarter staff
and you wanted to wield the mace, you could do so in one of the following ways:
'wield weapon 3' 'wield mace' 'wield small mace' (assuming that 'small mace' is a valid alias for it)
