    Sword FHR rate

    Are swords swinging or stabbing weapons?

    My Windy is currently using a Spirit Crystal sword, and I was wondering which FHR i needed to reach. 152//174?

    Sadly, Blizzard only recognizes swords as a swinging weapon. Being both a fencer and an iaido practitioner, I'm rather inclined to disagree, but the game code says 174% needed with a sword :p

    Technically it could be used for either, as it's meant to be a sort of stone-bladed arming sword. However...even lifting it, let alone properly wielding it, would be a challenge all its own, as such a blade would easily outweigh even a war maul. But oh the damage it would do, especially at a blade thickness of 1 single molocule, thrust or cut notwithstanding!
