LOL I'm glad to see JS Trinity being thrown around as I was the one who started with that phrase.
Anyway, better not get hopes up for Gauntlets, Tank said in some other thread that they've never confirmed or hinted at Gauntlets (which they actually did in the Livestream when Tank was talking to Bolt Man, they mentioned something having luchador moves), out of previous GOW's, these are the weapons we can expect : Spear and Shield (I'd quit the game if this is it), Gauntlets, Kratos Blades, Bow and Whip. Can't wait to hear people complain about lack of Combos on Bow or too much range etc etc LOL

Good thing theres a 4th option for jumpslicing.
I'll give you all a hint: Your parry will whiff, my jumpslice will whiff. I punish your parry.

If you knew what I knew, you'd know that hammers are OP, jump slicers are dirt on the bottom of your shoe, and spears are super annoying.

Shield sword sound good some Axe and claws like Hades will be nice to some more nice looking hammers and swords and Spears to
But for now new weapon set claws shields and swords duel wile swords and axes
Will be cool and some more Armor sets and boost up the regular sets .
sets like Skorbian and stuff

Respone to everyone saying "no" and "gauntets will make it balanced", you do realize that what I am saying is factual. It follows basic probability.
Eg. Right now, lets say Swords>Spears>Hammers>Swords (just an example)
Therefore Swords have 1 strength and 1 weakness, Spears have 1 strength and 1 weakness, Hammers have 1 strength and 1 weakness.
But if they add the 4th class (lets say gauntlets), then it will be imbalance.
Swords has 2 strengths and 1 weakness, Gauntlets have 2 strengths and 1 weakness, Hammers have 1 strength and 2 weakness, Spears have 1 strength and 2 weakness. This is a possible scenario.
With the addition of one more weapon class; each weapon class will have 2 strengths and 2 weaknesses.
I am not saying that someone with the disadvantage can't win, I'm saying that it will ruin the balance. Also if it is unbalanced now, 2 more weapons can work to create this balance.

I'm not even sure if there are weaknesses with weapon choice anymore... they each have a unique playstyle, who's to say one weapon class overpowers the other?
They have their own unique strengths and weaknesses .
Swords can insta-juggle, but most swords don't have powerful combos.
Most Hammers have long and damaging combos, but most only work off of a parry.
Spears can move and block at the same time, but their moves come out rather slowly.
