Because they haven't made them all yet.

Considering the awakening weapon is always to counter the classes' weaknesses, I want to imagine it would be a weapon that can block or create another i-frame? A wide-sword like a scythe might be interesting for wizard/witch. :) Or an umbrella. Umbrellas are fun weapons to think of.

how do awakened weapons work? Is it like a second option to use? Or is it a required weapon for them?

I'd like to image it would be a enchanted hand mirror . And when the wizard looked deep into the mirror his awaken powers would unlock . Enabling him to change his crappy character creator.

I think it will be a crystal or orb. On the contrary it could be related to daggers or a whip.

I like the idea of a whip :D would be pretty badass. *whip* noise then crack of thunder aoe dmg spell xD 

A mirror would also be a nice idea - maybe inspire by Snow White witch with the mirror, could be used as a shield to reflect incoming damage.

Either that or a weapon the can be used for healing like a bell or crystal. Who knows xD

Probably would be cool and would work well but I'd prefer something not sword like - it's too Gandalf like. I'd prefer something more unique. If it were a sword it would need to look very mystical to impress me >.<

I would really love to see them get a book/tome type weapon, or a floating disc type weapon.

Eh, I wouldn't mind a sword if it were to utilize the staff as it's sheath. This is fantasy after all :P

That would be exactly like tamer weapon tho.  she hides her sword in her flute, like a sheath.  so i dont see them doing that, since they are trying to make weapon sets that can be unique to that class.

You have a second weapon you can switch to, with its own different set of skills. :)

I do find it strange that even in an update like this things aren't served out at the same time. When you're in a restaurant you can't serve dish number one, 15 minutes earlier than the others. Imo - this is somewhat the same. 

I myself would develop these 'awakenings' and serve/update all classes at the same time.

Then there'd be no new class updates for a long time while they do all the work on the awakenings, plus they'd have to make lots of changes at once to try and balance them after release. Its just not something they'd do because its important for fresh content to keep coming.

Lets be real here, this isn't the 1st mmo that have "epic" weapons.  The rest of the mmos have released them all at once so far.

These old bones would not mind carrying an offhand awakening blade; not necessarily a sword, but a combination of staff and shortblade, perhaps...a knife ? A dagger ?

Let the fantasy and lore guide this choice.

Thank you for clarifying that.

Would you imagine a Wizard evolving the offhand weapon into a longer blade then, for his Awakening ? 

While I am sure many do appreciate the Gandalf feel already established within the class, what alternatives would you make a Wizard with that specific apparel wield ?

Let us consider that there are two distinct version of the same class, it may be possible that they choose to give us two distinct sorts of Awakenings, regardless of how similar (if not identical) the mechanics the two classes have. Usually the answer can be found in lore, given the majority of times there is a story behind a reason. Even an apparently meaningless quest would give us a take on it.

What lore our Wizard and Witches conceal that could give us an idea on what source of power they crave most, and is maybe 'that' very source of power they crave so much that will eventually allow them an 'Awakening' ? While I hate to bring other games examples, think about the thirst for arcane energy of the Blood Elves from Warcraft. 

Would it make sense, not in the very literal example I have made however, to look at lore as a reference ? Perhaps the answer is already there. Do certain Wizard NPCs do certain things when pushed to the limits or employ other sort of styles ? 

 

What does the audience think ?
