17:52 - !J.O.O.E.! Actually crossguards would be immensely useful on a lightsaber. You know, to stop someone sliding their lightsaber down yours and cutting your hands off? Kinda what was useful about them in the first place on swords.
17:51 - Redn1ght The crossguard blades seem like they were more likely to hurt the wielder than the enemy.
17:50 - Frodd got me excited like a kid as well. and the lightsaber crossgurads arent that bad
17:49 - Redn1ght Yeah Zaph. First thought that came to my mind is "How is that helping the wielder at all? Doesn't it make the sabre more harder to use?"
