Personally, I don't like that BDA can use swords, they should be forced to use knives only. But that's my perogative to dislike. Do I expect a change in the code to alter this? No. Yes, the quickwood hoopak is very good. Yes, a myth kender calian will do a LOT of damage with it. If you want something equal, go RDA, use serrated obsidian halberd, and for Lars' sake, get your agility up to the same level as the kenders, and you'll do equally high damage. If you choose to be a goblin, you only get avarage dexterity, you get much higher constitution and much higher strength... However, you also get to be the race with the lowest intelligence and can't attack much of the big things around it seems.
Yes, SSoUT kenders get _more_ out of a hoopak than a calian, but then again, a Calian get more out of a GSB than a BDA doe as well, thanks to swarm. So with your annoyance of calian kenders using hoopaks, well, lets rectify this, and at the same time give them exclusive right to the best two handed swords. Crystal axe? Sure, now useable by gladiators only (sorry Neidars), silvanesti shield, turtle shells, kite-shield... Shieldbearers only. Runed basket-hilt falchions goes to SU only. Daggers w/o poison goes to SU as well. And the list goes on.
Stop whining about who can use what equipment, you should instead go growel to Cotillion for making the changes he have made, allowing us to be able to, on stroke of luck, to obtain more of the various items we crave, although, never expect to always have them.
FYI - The serrated obsidian halberd and the carved quickwood hoopak are (as I've understood) balanced. Go tell RDA that you want the serrated obsidian halberd removed, because you don't like the calian kenders
Uhm... RDA are not even close to Calians in damage No matter the dex... just saying, so thats just wrong
