It just doesnt feel right.
Both weapons and armor they scale to tiny!
I believe they could be somewhat bigger.

I see norn and humans and charrs with hammers and Greatswords and they look huge even for them.
But for asura feels like holding a stick.

About armor, special pauldrons they look so bad for asura.

They just dont scale properly.

Do you feel the same? the you think they should change it?

or you just dont play asura?

I just don't play them, but I see what you mean and it's what pulls me away from the race really.

I have the greatsaw on my Charr and it's magnificent. When I preview it on an Asura however.. *giggles*

With the exception of clipping especially with shields they scale fine for me. I love the animations and momentum, balance etc that makes having a big but tiny weapon feel realistic.

I think they scale fine. I realize this is frustrating when you want to see your glorious weapons and armor, but it would be ridiculous if their gear was any bigger.

Imagine if this older Asura's 'light sword' were the size of a humans! Why, he wouldn't be able to do any of his gymnastic maneuvers or fight effectively. (Imagine trying to play baseball with a 12-foot bat)

..and yes, Yoda is an Asura. They try to keep that hush-hush over there but we all know it.

I think human weapons are way too big, in most cases ^_^

I have seen humans with swords that are almost as big as the human itself.
You dont see that in asura, maybe the GS may be as big as the asura.
