So, word around the grapevine is that, in the 0.44.XX release, dense metals (silver, platinum, etc.) alone don't make for good blunt weapons anymore, that edge counts for armor penetration. I haven't found any proof for these statements, can anyone point me toward a way to test this to verify if this is true? Or maybe I missed some weapon research forum thread detailing this stuff? If anyone knows, please tell me, thank you.

Well, I mean, the easiest way to test things is set them up in the testing arena, isn't it? You know which metals you're dealing with, so just set up ten on ten battles between the same species, with all else the same, and test out what happens when you switch up weapons between battles.

And make a silver-weighted material with ridiculously good edge, so you can test this.



I may have discovered a big, as none of the artifacts I stole are choosable as weapons for my military after I reclaimed.
