|Summary||0006474: Add Falchion to Chaos Knight initial weapon selection.|
As of right now, only Fi/Gl are allowed to select a falchion as their starting weapon. A Chaos Knight can select a mace, which is nearly identical to the falchion.
When both of these weapon reach min delay, the falchion can attack 8 times in 5 turns, versus 7 times in 5 turns for the mace. The lower accuracy may take away the 1 aut advantage of the mace. I haven't fsimmed it, but I would bet it's very close.
Neither of these weapon classes have special abilities. What they offer are different upgrade paths. Long Blades have the best common one hander (scimitar) and Maces and Flails have the best common non-axe two-hander (great mace). A great sword is nowhere near as good as a great mace, and the one handed maces and flails are all terrible (these really need reworking).
I suggest allowing CK to choose a falchion as a test to see if Be should be allowed to select a falchion as well, which has been suggested by other players in ##crawl.
I have attached two patches. One gives CK the choice of falchion without altering the base damage of falchions, and the other gives CK the choice of falchion and lowers the base damage of falchions to 7, which would make a falchion worse than a mace damage-wise, but with a better upgrade path for one-handed weapons.
