Description

All good Barbarian players will choose which weapon class they want to use throughout the entire game. It is wise to do this as you will then know precisely what weapon you want to trade for and you won't waste time saving points and missing out on the damage bonus until you decide.

Lore

Members of the Crane Tribe value distance, grace and a single overwhelming blow over the close grappling form advocated by the Bear Tribe. Though the two clans were wary of one another for many generations, recently the nomadic peoples have commingled and now share their powerful techniques with all that would learn. Crane warriors evolved their pole arm technique from dealing with mounted raiders and fighting in the shallow river waters found in the steppe. A master of the pole arm avoids physical contact with his opponent until he can land a single killing blow.[1]
