|Volume 1 - Aarchon Anecdote Authority
"The blind man fights using the dreaded flying guillotine, a decapitating
weapon that even has it's own movie. It's a metal box with retractable blades
connected to a long chain. All you have to do is throw it on your enemy's
head, and pop! Off comes the noggin!"
For nearly a decade, the revered Aerial Decaptitator was the most valuable
and sought after weapon in all the land. Today, the Aarchon Anecdote Authority
devalues the item by 15%, by dispelling some rumors that have been surrounding
the mechanics behind beheading!
Rumor 1: Weapons that do slash damage have a better chance to behead than all
AAA Says: FALSE. Damtype has no bearing on your chance to behead
Rumor 2: Exotics have a high chance to behead.
AAA Says: FALSE. Axes have the best chance to behead, followed by swords,
then daggers and polearms, then exotics. It is not possible to behead with a
spear, mace, flail, gun, or whip.
Rumor 3: A heavy weapon has a better chance to behead
AAA Says: FALSE. Weapon weight plays no factor in your chance to behead an
Rumor 4: High STR and LUC stats help you behead more
AAA Says: Partially TRUE. While these stats don't inherently give you a better
chance to behead, if you play a class with the Beheading skill (Warrior or
Gladiator), then these stats will increase your effective Beheading skill. The
greater your beheading skill, the greater your chance to behead
Rumor 5: The beheading skill helps your chance to behead with a gun
AAA Says: FALSE. As mentioned in rumor 2, it is not possible to behead with a
gun. You can however assassinate your opponent which effectively counts for
and appears a behead.
