clubs are very OP. anyone who denies this is out lunch. claims such as everyone should have full riot gear and that everyone has fortitude of 30 or higher are absurd. another issue w the club (ascendent) is how incredibly cheap it is to craft in comparison to other ascendent items. They are handed out like candy on Halloween. there is a reason damn near every troll runs around naked with a club. It is the most powerful melee weapon by far and should not be. My standard loadup for weapons is pike or sword, club, bolas, and crossbow. If im in a melee or short range pvp situation im using the club the vast majority of the time.
