Mawry Haversack, Sword Juggler
Mawry demonstrates the rarely seen art of Sword Juggling

Mawry Haversack (the original Halfling Commando) is going through a paladin phase, or should I say, another paladin phase since she has done this before.

Armor, tower shield, single weapon fighting. Without the single weapon fighting feats. Just her and her sword. She’s indestructible. Seriously, nothing can kill her. But her DPS is not so spectacular. Not at all.

But I digress. This is not about Mawry’s build, which is only going to last for another 125K XP regardless, before she peels off yet another life’s skin and is reborn as something else.

This is about what happens when she swings a sword. I mean, other than the fact that very little damage is likely to occur. Something else happens too. Something odd.

Here it is in slow motion.

Sword Juggling in slo-mo
Throw your sword in the air like you just don’t care

See that? Sword juggling. A talent I didn’t even know she had! No feat needed either, yet it seems to be always active, occurring on average every third or fourth swing.

I imagine it is related to shield bashing. Instead of a bash, the animation shows a thrown sword. It is purely visual and has no effect on Mawry’s attacks. Yes it is just a bug. I am making a big deal out of a simple bug, one of many. Go ahead, roll your eyes, I understand.

I find it to be a particularly entertaining bug. It seems that I am just weird like that.

Here it is again, at full speed.

Sword Juggling at full speed

What can I say. Small minds are easily occupied. So be it. I’d rather be the guy that gets excited about a silly bug than be the guy who never gets excited about anything.

In fact I … oh wait, what’s that? Oooooh, a shiny thing!

I’ll have to get back to you.
