Forums: Index > Help desk > Questions about weapon proficiency

I would like to know if weapon proficiency can be gained through basic melee combat (i.e. not in berserk mode) and while entering or exiting phase walk. It really depends on what is meant by "equipped weapon." Is a weapon considered equipped during phase walk and if Roland uses his knife to smite enemies is his weapon still equiped? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

Weapon Profiiciencies are acutuallly determined by the number of kills with the type of weapon & the level & rank of the enemy. So you don't gain anything by melee kills even with the weapon equiped. But it does count towards melee & or action kill challenge which contributes towards your experience up to a certain point. Jsachun 13:49, August 31, 2011 (UTC)

Hmm, that's not what is stated on the Weapon proficiency page. According to that page you gain weapon proficiency from experience gained while wielding a weapon (i.e. you gain proficiency even when allies kill enemies). I'd like to know if you continue wielding your weapon during phase walk and while performing a melee attack. Just.kevin 16:59, August 31, 2011 (UTC)

After doing some independent testing I have found out that melee strikes do in fact level up weapon proficiencies. I got real close to the next level then I smacked down enemies until I gained a level. Phasewalk does not increase a weapon's proficiency. In conclusion feel free to smack down enemies but don't expect to gain proficiency from phasewalk.Just.kevin 02:16, September 1, 2011 (UTC)

In phasewalk, lilith puts away her weapon and does not wield it. Note her hands are empty when you're in phasewalk, and also you have to wait for the weapon draw time when you come out of phasewalk. Therefore, you don't gain proficiency when you're in phasewalk. When you melee, the weapon is still in your hand, so you do gain proficiency. Logisim 02:25, September 1, 2011 (UTC)
