As a young farmhand and/or graying steelsmith, you must defend your quaint village from a dragon who's awaken from a deep slumber, eager to dine on manflesh. Choose your weapon and fight with honor. Stern%20Smile

By the way, claymores, bows, staffs, and the two-edged axe require two hands to wield, and therefore one cannot carry a shield with them. Keep this in mind when choosing, as shields are very handy when dealing with dragons.

Short bow of course!  The critical hit percentage is higher!

Depends on what powers the enchanted staff has been imbued with. Stern%20Smile

A double-edged Battle Axe.  I prefer sharp weapons to those pansy bludgeon weapons. Wink

Only wusses need two edges.  Real men only need one.

I only need one too, but it's better to be safe, than sorry. Wink

Besides, the other blade is useful for opening cans of beans.

Dragon's are sucker's for riddles, so i would puzzle them with an enchanted riddle.
 
and than slay them with a herring

You've not seen my two-edged one-handed Battle Axe have you Stonas?  I can easily use a shield with it.

Here's me with my single-edger:

I'm not left-handed though... that's how good I am!

Here's my double-edger:

Awww... poor girl...

I prefer a long bow. I wouldn't even dare come close to a dragon specially if he's surrounded by a glowing blue light.

Everyone knows bludgeonning weapons totally pwn slashing weapons you n00b.

I'd take a hammer any day.

Hammers suck giant monkey balls, it's all about maiming them with a sharp object.  Axes are perfect for the job.

Claymores are too bulky and heavy (my mate has one, so I know).  You want small, light and fast.  Give me some Shuriken as well actually.

You don't have holy water sprinkler!
You ever see that weapon? I would use it, no doubt.

Imagine hitting the dragon on the head with an axe. It just splits his head in two parts and it bleeds a little bit.

Now, imagine the sight of the skull of a dragon crushed by a war hammer. Way messier.

RIP in bossa nova heaven.
