    personaly instead I think that axes should do 8 damage and tridents 7.

    I just want axes to be buffed in damage, whether it's to 8 or 9 I just want axes to be buffed.

    Agreed. Even if axes have same DPS as the sword, the sword still has an upper hand becuase of their 0.5 extra reach. (In PvP that that actually makes a significant difference.)

     

    *Damage wise in comparsion to 1.9 axe and sword, the axe has been severely nerfed.

    It should at least deal +2 more dmg compared to sword.

    If we look at it historically axes were better in a battlefield than swords and yet many people today underrate them. They deserve more attention.

    I think by saying tridents and diamond axes have the same damage and reach, you mean they have the same damage and speed? Still agree though.

    I agree. Swords are around 20~30% better than axes in terms of DPS. This makes axes far too inferior especially in pve situations. It should still be slightly lower than swords though. Maybe 4.5 would be nice? In PVP combat, axes have the advantage over swords by disabling shields. Plus, chopping exists and it disables even more shields.

    I forgot axes had that low reach. You are right.

    Axes in the Combat Test 5 have the following damage values:

    5 for wooden, stone and golden axes. (10 DPS)

    6 for iron axes. (12 DPS)

    7 for diamond axes. (14 DPS)

    They all have an attack speed of 2. (attack 2 times in a second)

     

    I'd increase +1 damage for all axes.

     

    So the Diamond Axe DPS would be:

    7 + 1 = 8

    8 x 2 (axe attack speed) = 16 DPS

     

    It'd still be less than the Diamond Sword's 18 DPS. I wouldn't mind if they had exactly the same DPS, considering axes have a lower reach, but they will probably want to keep the swords DPS higher.

    Axes should be +2 damage to swords, but maybe their attack speed should be 1.5...

    It is only fair that axes have the same dps as swords or even a bit highter ( not too much ) since they have lower reach.

    yes, but also they have a 2 attack speed, which seems too fast for me. maybe lower to 1.7 if the axes do 1 more damage?
