"TH: There will still be weapons, but not nearly as many and they won’t be as powerful as a character fighting unarmed. The Akaviri katanas and daikatanas will be present. Also, since everyone has complained about it since they were removed in Oblivion, we will be adding spears in Akavir."
this comment alone should tell you it was a joke. nobody working with beth would ever say "everyone has complained about no spears, so we will add them back"
I wanna go back in time. Relive the Thalmor invasion of the Imperial City or get on a boat with 500 drunken nord 'heroes' fixin to stomp some knife ears right outta Skyrim, (did the elves use to say SKYRIM BELONGS TO THE ELVES prior to battle?) Experience life under the tyranny of the dragons and their priests, I dunno.
Don't really care what, I just want the last dlc to be something worth talking about 2-4 years later.
