Not the most pressing matter in New World, but nonetheless something i thought i’d bring up because it is annoying.
The way that the War hammer / Great axe combo (Which i know a lot of people use) looks on your back is really really bad. They overlap into each other which is annoying considering how badass it could be looking if done right.
I don’t know how to explain what it should look like, so i’ve linked two pictures. One of them being of my character with how it looks like currently in the game, and the other picture depicting how it SHOULD be looking. (Not the way that the weapons look design wise, but the way that they are sheathed on your back)
Realistically (yeah yeah I know…) they’re positioned in the most logical fashion. These are heavy weapons and having the striking head/blades close to the center of gravity would make more sense than having a ten pound-plus weight on a shaft a couple of feet above your head. If it was positioned lower down then the shaft and pommel would run the risk of clipping the ground.
I don’t think there’s any elegant way to sheathe these weapons given their size, but the way it is now bothers me the least. Now if they could have them crossed on your back or come up with a better way to store them so there’s minimal clipping it would be perfect. Or even give us options based on personal style.
