Assuming that you are stuck in the death-game that is Sword Art Online and you are taking your first step outside the Town of the Beginnings, what weapon will you be using?

[Dagger]

Easiest weapon to use. Decent damage, short range but no movement penalty to use. Preferred as starting weapon by newbies. Can be dual wielded for increased effectiveness later on.


[Dual Wielding]

Best damage per second(DPS) dealer in the game. By sacrificing defense and armor rating, increased speed and attack power, making it preferred by berserkers or speed clearing low level floors.

[Great Axe]

Heaviest, and the hardest hitting weapon in the game. Sacrificing agility and movement speed boosts the weapons attack power many folds.


[Great Sword]

Middle ground between an axe and a sword. It is heavy but not as heavy as a Great Axe, making it more maneuverable and deals more damage than the axe.


[Katana]

Single sword weapon styled as a katana to decrease its weight and power to increase its attack speed.


[Rapier]

A slender pointy sword which multiplies damage on thrust attacks and reduction on slash attacks.


[Single Sword]

Single sword weapon in-between a dagger user and a greatsword user. Mostly preferred because of mobility but doesn't want to affect damage.


[Sword and Shield]

A tank-type weapon set which focuses on defensive skills. It sacrifices mobility by wearing heavy armor and carrying shield and a sword for increased defense.

[Two Handed Spear]

A dual handed weapon sacrificing a shield for increased speed and attack damage.

I'm personally choosing [Sword and Shield] because I like having tanky defense with heavy armor.

I think I'd start with [Single Sword] for lower levels then once I was a higher level I would switch to [Dual Wielding].

[Shadowstep]

It's not in the SAO...yet? It's a Sword Skill that makes you have teleporting attacks and escaping after that strike. A good hit-n-run tactic to use. Imagine...Nightcrawler!

I would actually go a bit more like fists. Unarmed combat is allowed in SAO, and I'm pretty sure there are a few weapons out there which focus on unarmed combat...

Yep, I just want to be a Monk.

Monks are nice

I don't think so, maybe if they reset Aincrad from Floor 1 again but as far as I know, once the floor is cleared, the boss mobs don't respawn.

[Q & A Thread] I answered I kinda similar question here

I think I'd go Rapier to be honest. Doesn't seem to popular but it would be what I think I'd be most comfortable with if I had to choose. Or possibly a katana / Bow and Arrows if magic wasn't an option.
