Changes in version 0.35 seems to have made weapons more common to find in chests while also making them less needed. With changes done to PvP, only around 10 weapons would be needed to partake in all PvP tournaments, down from around 75, and 15-20 to do all dungeon objects.
Despite this, there is still a weapon storage shortage. The main reason for this is weapons are the only equipment item in the game that cosmetically changes the hero, yet it has to share the storage space with 11 other equipment items that do not have this visual function.
Seems weird to code an entire cosmetic system for an equipment type, but then have the storage for such cosmetics have to compete with all the other needed equipment items in the game that don’t cosmetically change anything, but are still required for gameplay.
Weapons having their own full sized storage like spell, pets, etc. would help fix this and would free up dozens of storage from equipment.
