Chosen during Character Creation, a character's Weapon is what defines their combat abilities. Some weapons specialize in ranged attacks, some in melee, and some dabble in both. That being said, all weapons possess melee and ranged attacks at varying levels of effectiveness depending on their specialty.

While initially only able to choose one weapon type, after level 10 the player can choose to put skill points into other weapon trees.
