  • Kunkka's weaponry

    Why do we even have custom weapons for Kunkka? I mean, his sword is called Tidebringer and he can only deal damage to multiple enemies because of this sword's propreties. So it makes no sense to me that he can wield Shadow Blade and still attack many enemies with tidal powers.
    Possible solution to foreigners issue
    In the grim darkness of the far future there is only war.

    Or it's a magical ability Kunkka possesses...Or it could be that weapons are semi canon. I mean, he has several pistols at his disposal yet he won't use them. Explain that.

      A lost Claddish soul inhabits Kunkka's trusty Tidebringer, empowering it to destroy demons of the Cataract.
      Would you use a poorly accurate and slow weapon non-powerful weapon when you have a sword like Tidebringer. Especially if you're fighting demons.

        Maybe the soul can transfer itself to other swords.

          I would go with what he suggested for lore convenience.

            I personally think Kunkka should never have got swords to replace Tidebringer; any cosmetic swords should have been put on his hip.

                And because it's boring. Not many people care at all that there's a minor inconsistency in the lore for cosmetic Kunkka swords. If you couldn't customize Kunkka's sword it would just seem really weird and arbitrary.

                Same for Luna's mount, Mirana's mount and Earthshaker's totem. "Special" items that lore wise wouldn't be replaced, but can be because it makes more sense for them to be cosmetics.

                  Then why do you center lore around this items if you intend to change them. It's the same shit as Axe wielding two-handed Illidan blade.

                    Yeah, it's long past the time that the description should have been changed. For now we can just assume that that lost Claddish soul doesn't mind frequently moving from sword to sword.
                    Heroes this user should seriously reconsider ever picking again.
