Please post what kind of weapon would best work. It would have to deal low damage, but give large defensive bonuses
Other then what Andrew said pretty much nothing comes to mind really. although i thought of the shield from lost planet 2 but when i thought about it it would be very unbalanced .[its pretty much invincible but you have to be very close but to bash and kill a human, which takes like 3 hits, just imagine that on a monster. it would take days] user:boltman31
As Andrew said, we already have the lance. If you want something more defense-based, the result would be either unbalanced or near useless. Still, someone once proposed an "Asura Shield" that sounded pretty neat; you should probably take a look at that one.Cobalt32 01:11, February 15, 2011 (UTC)Cobalt32
Can you post a picture of the asura shield? If not, where can I find it?
There is no photo of it. In fact, there is not actually an Asura shield. Its just a wish that someone had. It still should be in the Wishlist section, though. rikimaru 03:13, February 15, 2011 (UTC)
The Asura shield was put forward by me, someone originally stated that it would be interesting to have a defense oriented weapon and it was always an Idea that I had, there is no picture for it but just imagine a large roman pretorian shield when unfolded, folded it would resemble the size of a Lancer's shield from Valkyria Chronicles.

On the subject of defensive weapons i'm always interested to see what other ideas people come forwards with this is always an area that intruiges me as I love fighting defensively. Rathalos Samurai Zaka 10:42, February 15, 2011 (UTC)
it would seem rather weird and somewhat funny bashing a wyvern over the head with shield, don't you think? User:Barr65
