Skill requirements for weapons

Following is a list of the fighting skill requirements for the weapons at Pangaea. The number listed next to the item, is the skill required for using the item without any penalties. For instance if you want to use a war mace to fight, you need 85% macefighting to avoid any penalty. If your skill is below the listed value, you will have less chance of hitting your opponent.

The number also indicates the difficulty of the item. To gain in a combat skill, you should choose a weapon that fits you current skill level. The gain range of an item is +/- 20 of the item skill. Ex. You can use a kite shield to gain from 55% to 95% skill. Although the skill gain will be very slow in the outer extremes of the range. So find the items best suited for your skill.
