Was their a level cap on certain weapons or dual-wielding for Warrior?

I know in past betas certain weapons looked like they had a level requirement (like Hammer for Warriors, for example).

@Mordakai What do you mean by a level "cap"? Level required? Or a "cap" as in "you can't use this anymore, time to upgrade"? I'd expect the requirement. Don't want low levels running around with insanely powerful gear from twice their experience do ya?

As to the weapons being class-specific, I THINK (I could be wrong so any clarification would be appreciated) that most classes can use MOST weapons. There were some videos a while back that displayed a necromancer using axes, for example. Your skills will change based on your weapons so they'd probably want to keep options open to people. However, I wouldn't expect many engineers using a hammer or anything, would you? Again, purely speculation based on the information I've come across so if anyone wants to clarify, that'd be great :)

LOL at all the upskirt shows in the video..c'mon guys show a little restraint! :) Anyway the game does sound like it has some nice ideas, I especially like the changes to questing if I understand them right. Also I was little confused watching that video as-well-as others. Some parts looked great, while others looked rather poor such like they had lousy textures/low polygon count or something. I usually just chalk it up to be some areas are just not done yet graphically, but I'm beginning to wonder if they mesh some "low" graphic settings footage in their videos to give some range of their graphics? IDK just for me the visuals have been very hit or miss.

@(Unverified) You saw 'upskirt' angles because that was what you were looking for. The 'camera' angles used were pretty normal truck, pan and dolly shots.

I find it tasteless that someone is shamelessly plugging their own article on both reviews

"...there's also a running count on the map screen that shows you the completion percentages for the area you're in and the entire world."

ZOMG...

Damn that looks awesome. I can't wait until more people can play this (including me!)

Also, is that music from the game, or someplace else? I love the music.

Thanks for the write up, little peeve for me is the character movement lacks fluidity looks a little bouncy. Game looks great can't wait until launch!

@deluxe2000

Considering that the deer didn't even try to run away, I'd say natural selection.

My review of these 2 reviews is positive. I very much like both reviews and look forward to further reviews of the game in the future.

Whilst I dont know much about the specifics of the game, I am getting caught up with hype and very much look forward to seeing if it delivers or if like other games, is all talk and no trousers.
