So, let's say you play using one-handed weapons, which one do you prefer?

The sword. It offers a wide field of possible moves. From feints and tricks to strong strokes and strikes. So it´s some kind of all in one weapon, the best of light dagger and heavy axe.

And it looks most heroic, too.

I focused on the one handed weapons and that's why I didn't mention the warhammer and the great sword...but you are right that I forgot the mace /:

True, Bleeding your opponent to death or decapitating them is over-rated.
Smashing them marauders to jellyfish is the newest trend.

So I'm gonna die feeling irresponsible for not mentioning the mace in this poll. Sick

There is only one weapon which can slice a throat without making any sound, and silence is truly the most perfect sound. Which is why I cherish my dagger.

Couldn't agree more with you! ^^ The perfect weapon for assassinations.

Can't decide between axe or sword, while I love swords I like axes as well more specifically when it comes to nordic/viking styled races or dwarves in fantasy. ....eh decisions decisions.

Dagger.

Swords are too long, Axes are ugly, and maces are too slow.
Quick. Silent. Lethal.

(Bingo! :D Especially with the possibility of kills cams... >:D)

(However, I've always used an axe in MMORPGs... and it does fit the Viking/Nord visage... on the other hand, maces include hammers and bludgeons. Who doesn't like crushing things, am I right? Too many decisions... :p)

(IMO I'm going with a shield and a mace/axe. Can't decide!)

I would also have to agree on the dagger, It just lends itself to the assassin approach as well as being the fastest and imho the most satisfying to kill with
