    This is for an early, all the way to late game (kinda) weapon. Your fists!
    Early game you can start with an empty slot, later in the game you can create metal knuckles or magical gloves that increase your fist's damage or gives it special effects.
    Damage with fists vary, the closer to you they are the more damage it does, same with KB.
    Fists work like shortswords, but you can aim where they go, instead of just going in front of you and being useless vs flying monsters.
    Fists cannot -Go Through- Enemies, if the enemies are very close they fists can go back and punch again faster, like golem fist.
    Most of these are not autoswing.
    All Melee damage (With some exceptions)
    Gloves can be equiped in a special "Glove" Accessory slot that "upgrades" your normal fists so you can still fight with an empty slot.

    As much as I would love some new short-range weapons, I don't think this is a particularly good way of going about it. Most of these just aren't practical, especially going against any enemy that doesn't take knockback ("Take that paladin!" *head squished by a hammer*).

    Maybe take a look at the Bladed Glove for an example of a good short-range weapon.
    As it is, no support.
  4. bzhen0

    This isn't supposed to be practical ;-; its just for fighting normal enemies, not bosses or such. Most enemies take knockback anyway, also besides, I'm not done yet :E
    Fruitbat likes this.
  5. LoM2

    LoM2 Retinazer

    It's a weapon, and yet it's not practical...? If you have one at every tier up to hallowed, I expect it to have at least some reason that I should use it. Right now a sword of equal tier seems like a much better choice, especially once we're out of Early PreHM.

    Also, I judge ideas based on what exists. I can't just dig through your brain for what's not posted yet, so "I'm not done yet" really doesn't work as an excuse. Especially since it doesn't justify the practicality thing.
  6. bzhen0

    bzhen0 Terrarian

    Actually due to high use rate if you get close and spam it does much more damage, but at the risk of taking tons of damage if you can't keep them back. You can just wait for me to finish to see what I'm thinking ;{} :redmunch:

    What I meant by not practical is that it won't beat any boss of a similar tier, that is til endgame

    3-6 Damage with your fists by default?
    I think the damage should be lowered to 1-3, your fist should be a last-resort thing.

    Otherwise, I support.

    8/10, needs tweaks. :dryadindifferent:
    srsly though if this gets added i am doing a whole play through with these

    I love this idea! It'd be nice having a weapon you can always use... Perfect for my adventure maps:D
  9. LoM2

    LoM2 Retinazer

    While that would be true, it's still a lot less practical than a lot of other weapons. The only one (that I read, there's quite a lot and most of it is just stats) that actually seems applicable in most situations is the Hellstone one.

    Also, in regards to the other point, if I have to wait for you to finish, then what exactly is the point of posting the suggestion in an unfinished form...? As far as I can tell, the only reason you would really need to post the suggestion before it's finished is to get feedback to make the rest better, but if your reasoning for any existing problems is that it's not finished... doesn't that kind of negate the point?

    bzhen0 Terrarian

    Early game you will probably rush a wooden sword, and even if you die you will respawn with copper shortsword. If I nerf the damage to 1-3 it becomes literally useless.

    It takes time to type all this stuff, and reference it to the actual weapons to check its not overly op. Also I don't to keep it in an unfinished state because my laptop is starting to crash more often then usual now :_:
    This IS (sort of) practical (but not a lot). Using this basically gives you tons of more damage potential in exchange for your safety.

    It's interesting. How would the animation look? My only concern is that it might be weird for a Terraria character to punch. Other than that, it's an awesome concept.
  15. DJ M4N3

    DJ M4N3 Retinazer

    I agree.
  16. bzhen0

    bzhen0 Terrarian

    A (maybe gloved) fist would -extend- from the player, if the player is running forward its forward punch, if your running backwards then the hand reaches its max distance from the player and comes back almost instantly. Maybe when you have an empty slot equiped the charater goes into a "combat stance" to make the punching look less strange.
