Description
Intro

Welcome to Exotic Arsenal! This is a DLC mod which adds 55 bladed weapons to the game which can be located in chests and shops throughout the world. Diagrams for the weapons can also be obtained which allow more powerful versions to be crafted.
There are currently 28 steel and 27 silver weapons which cover a broad range of categories such as daggers, polearms and practical fantasy. Each category of weapon comes with it's own themed stats and abilities, designed in some cases to influence a specific combat style.

Loot
Auto leveled weapons can be found in chests scattered throughout No Man's Land (Velen & White Orchard), Novigrad and Skellige. They typically appear in mid tier chests in addition to vanilla loot. When found, auto leveled weapons will appear in one of the four qualities: common, master, magic and relic. These add to the weapon's basic stats in different ways.

Shops
Blacksmiths' stock both auto leveled weapons and diagrams, what items appear is based on regional drop lists so you'll have to do a bit of traveling to find certain weapons. Diagrams can be spotted easily in stores as they have a green (Witcher) icon background, take note however that they tend to be costly.

Crafting
Diagrams are obtained via purchase but can also be obtained by dismantling auto leveled weapons both found and bought. Once learnt, diagrams can be used to craft a superior versions of the weapons which are Witcher quality, have enhanced stats, 3 rune slots and are tailored to your current level.

Weapons + Gameplay
All weapons have been categorized and given stats and abilities that (hopefully) influence a specific combat style. The following section details each of them.

Item Codes
Every item can be obtained via the console with the additem("") command. Commands are the same for NGP. By using just the below names an autogenerated weapon will be spawned into your inventory, by adding _d to the end you will receive the diagram of that weapon and by adding _c you will receive a crafted version of the weapon. For example if you wish to spawn the diagram of the Silver Kama you'd type additem("kama_silver_d")

Pronunciation Guide

Word and name pronunciation differs greatly depending on country and accent. The following section is a rough guide on how I pronounce the names of the more... uniquely titled weapons.

Technical
Compatibility

As DLC, Exotic Arsenal will not conflict with any other mod. However mods which make significant alterations may disable or cause certain elements of Exotic Arsenal to not function as intended. But with that said, most mods will be fully compatible. Take note though that the item descriptions mod included with the download may require merging.

If you are a Ghost Mode or W3EE user you can find compatibility patches available to install. Review the addons section for installation instructions.

Issues
As a common issue with all DLC weapon mods, none of the weapons have drop physics. So upon death it will simply freeze in place (a bit immersion breaking).

Final Section
About
An enormous amount of work has be put into the making of this mod. V1 took a solid 4 months of development.
All weapon and scabbard models are either themed from real world weapons or are of my own design, but each one was modeled from scratch every time.
Once I figured out how to control the visual mapping of runes I went all in on the idea of various sections of the weapons lighting up.
