    [Theory] Why Highlander is so Slow

    I made myself lol when I thought of this: Maybe the prop they used for mocap was too heavy?

    Wait, it does less damage than a dagger or harvesting sickle.
    Logic, right?

    The game favors light weapons. Especially small dual wielding weapons. Ive always imagined if they introduced a monk class who was absolutely naked. He would dominate the game based on the current design philosophy. He would be fast and be able to spam punches that no one would be able to block. Although Im sure that wouldnt work in a real sword fight.

    It's better than my theory, I just always assumed all Highlanders were perpetually drunk from their diet consisting exclusively of haggis and Scotch mixed with mead.

    I agree with Tundra, I always assumed he's smashed off his head. He even kinda slurs his words and blurts them out loudly like a drunkard.

    Plus he hails from Scotland, they're always p*ssed. They drink to keep warm like the Russians.

    Don't you mean, "eat your drugs, stay in vegetables and don't do school"?

    But after all, Highlander is always done with his glass, he's just going around begging for a refill.

    Maybe they got a literal drunk Scotsman to do the mocap and had to reassemble the animations to make sense, which of course is why it didn't make sense to us, because we are in fact not drunk Scotsmen.

    Really what this means is get drunk and play Highlander= auto win
