The Daily Grind: What’s your favorite weird MMO weapon?

Dare to be stupid!

Every MMO starts you off with the pretty standard weapon options. There are swords, big swords, axes, hammers, maybe some guns, brass knuckles, staves that aren’t really weapons but something for spellcasters to hold on to for more stats… you get the idea. Then you start getting the weirder stuff, like whips or scythes or flails… and then you start really reaching and you wind up with characters using bells, or fans, or four little hovering miniguns behind your back, or “hammers” that are actually just entire fish you hold by the fins.

Sometimes these are just weird weapons within the larger field of normal weapons. Sometimes (such as with Final Fantasy XIV) character skills are partly determined by weapon, so you wind up with new skill options using umbrellas or inflatable balloon animals or whatever. They might be cool, they might be silly, they might just be visually distinct. What’s your favorite weird MMO weapon to wield in combat and why?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
