The Flail is the newest weapon coming to New World when the Rise of the Angry Earth expansion hits on October 3rd. It's a versatile one-handed weapon with the option for an offhand shield. The Flail allows players to bolster the group while maintaining offense. Whether you're looking to tank or help heal the group in the MMORPG, the Flail's arcane magic has something for you.
The Flail will scale off of 90% strength and 65% focus for damage, but the weapon's utility, support, and healing will be linked exclusively with focus.
The Flair in New World will have two weapon trees just like other weapons. The Cleric Mastery Weapon Tree will contain the abilities Arcane Smite (area denial and damage), Arcane Vortex (area effect and damage), Arcane Eruption (damage over time and crowd control), and the Better Together Ultimate which gives passive heal over time while in close proximity to allies.
The Bastion Weapon Mastery Tree contains the abilities Barrage (gap closer and damage), Trip (crowd control), Warding Bludgeon (defensive), and the Human Shield Ultimate where hitting a target with an ability while near an ally will grant them a buff that reduces damage taken and directs it to the Flail wielder.
If the Flail feels half as good as it sounds it will probably be one of my two main weapons in New World following the release of the expansion. You can check out the full episode of this week's Forged in Aeternum below where they talk all about the Flail.
