    Me? As much as I love Anduril and can't wait to see it in action, the ranger sword at Helm's Deep just captures me.

    It's got to be a sword and shield for me. I love playing with sword and dagger or two swords with my re-enacting group, but when your "shield" is only the size of a dagger, it's a very good way to die!

    But I'm not too bad with two weapons, and I'm a pretty decent shot with a bow, so I almost went for Legolas's bow and twin blades, but there's a very good reason why just about every culture in the world used shields....

    I voted for Legolas's Bow and Daggers, The Bow is good for long distance killing and the daggers would come in handy in close fighting, if you are quick and can stab before the opponent with the larger sword out reaches you.

    I tend to agree with you Mubbabin. But I just love the ranger sword and the whole feel of it. I would especially love a ranger sword the right weight too.

    Glamdring and staff, without a doubt. You can't really use them both at once, but assuming that magical powers went along with the staff, how could you get any more awesome than that?

    And even if you didn't get any magic, they are both great weapons, albeit used one at a time.

    For my vote it's gotta be the Elven warrior/hadhafang/ Haldirs sword, HHMMM do we get all 3 If I had to pick one its Haldirs, most awesome sword yet. It has the power and reach of a long sword the cutting ability of a scimitar and the thrusting power of any sword oh ha its perfect and if united cutlery makes I swear to heaven and the valar I will get it especially if it comes with that awesome sheath.

    If i picked Legolas daggers and bow, would i get the Mithril arrows from the TTT game, you know the ones that go through everything and light enemies on fire?

    Whatever, i pick Legolas gear anyways.

    overall yes, the EWS dwarfs Glamdring, but look at the lengths of the blades. Very close in length. I don't think you'd get so much reach that you'd be invincible or anything.

    On another note, what do you suppose is on the bottom shelf, a gondorian dagger?

    Know what I have been noticing? Most, if not, all of you have chosen weapons becuase they look cool or they are your fav characters sword. I would like to know why. My would be Ranger out of them all becuase I enjoy using and have trained in it, so I can actually use it.

    Boromir's sword/shield. I'd feel way too vulnerable with just a sword.

    I like Boromir's sword and shield, too.

    I'd rather be living unfashionably than die looking cool.

    But that's just me....:D
