Base weapon purchase costs (in General)

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] July 14 2006 6:21 AM EDT

The Weapon store has the following base weapons to sell atm.

A Mace [16x1] (+0) $336
A Rapier [10x1] (+0) $42
A Main Gauche [6x1] (+0) $33
A Whip [9x1] (+0) $26

Why does the Main Gauche, with a worse base damage than a Whip, cost more?

You're paying for the infinitely-more-intimidating name.

I donno, I find Whips quote intimidating! ;)

A Mean Gauge sounds even more intimidating to me...

Who cares about that $7 anyway. NUB players who need a first weapon surely can afford to buy any of these.

*Gauche, sorry.

Indeed! Mean Gauche for the win! :D

yes i've noticed this for a while, a sabre(base) is worth less than a rapier(base).

and for those of you who don't know, sabre has 12 and rapier has 10. yet the rapier, the weaker one is still worth more.

You have to pay more for the imported French weapons.

items with a smaller base damage sometimes have a higher upgrade cost, to discourage people from upgrading it.
