Subject: Why only one rib blade in sprue? rss

Am I missing one? Or something?

I've fallen in love with this item after many campaigns I just realized that it's the only grand weapon I can find that isn't two handed. I wanted to make a dual wielding rib blade with the bladder mini.

But I only have one rib blade!

How can this be? I guess this is rhetorical, but why are there multiple copies of other weapons and not the rib blade?

There is really no good reason to have 4 Black Swords, 4 Gaxes, 4 Knuckle Shields, 3 Greater Gaxes, 3 Riot Maces, 3 Acid Tooth Daggers, but only 1 Rib Blade on the sprue. Either it was an oversight, or Poots wanted to see how many Gorm Armor kits he could get us to buy. He's got me at 4 blush

Yeah, clearly an error in quantities, since plenty of unique weapons have 3 copies, and IIRC pretty much all non-paired weapons are also 3.

Just FYI, the calcified juggernaut blade is another 1-handed grand weapon.

Non-dual-wield weapons (even uniques) generally come in threes: a version with a right hand attached, a version with a left hand attached, and a version with no hands attached. I too am surprised we didn't get three Rib Blades on the Gorm sprue.

The problem opposite of the Rib Blade is the Sonic Axe. Poots tends to put four copies of dual-wield weapons on a sprue, but due to a miscommunication, there's eight Sonic Axes on the Phoenix Armor one. (Poots copped to the error, wryly adding "...so enjoy the extras, I guess?") I got the bonus box from the first Kickstarter, which had an extra Phoenix sprue, so I ended up with sixteen of the things. I put twelve on a single mini (two in the hands, four on the back, two on the belt, three stuck in the ground and one apparently in mid flight) that I love to use for any given axe specialist.
