Scabbards, Sheaths, and holsters Original Wurm Character models Character customization has come a long way in Wurm. When I started the game, every single character online looked identical. Green tunic, green pants, black belt with a gold buckle. Now we can choose how our characters faces look right down to the crook in our nose. With all the new cosmetic items as of late (masks, shoulder pads, new necklace models) I'm sure many players are dreaming of the possibilities of how their Wurm Online character could look. And while many players are asking for new items (capes, cloaks, scarves, etc), I think that there is a blatantly obvious omission from the existing character appearance. Every single character in this game carries an object in their hand. Ninety nine percent of players carry a weapon. Sword, axe, staff - you have it, there are many weapons. But not one of them has a sheath. No scabbards. Not one holster on Wurm Online. Imagine a war party riding out on horseback, with axes slung over shoulders. Swords dangling from belt sheaths. Staves slotted in holsters diagonally across the back. It'd be practical in the real world, but it'd simply look nice in Wurm. An example of how weapon sheathing could look. The way I imagine it working is whenever you go out of your fighting stance (right click > No Target after engaging an opponent), the game would check if you have a scabbard, sheath, or holster equipped. If so, and so long as the weapon type you have correlates to the type of sheath you have, you will put your weapon away into it. The current "no-targeted idle" can remain in game for the people who don't have a sheath equipped. Perhaps there could be an advantage to sheathing your weapon. Increases in movement speed could be one. It can be slight, but would still give a reason for people who are out of combat to "no-target" in order to get the speed "buff". Other buffs could include crafting bonuses (you work faster when your weapon is away, and a tool in your hand) - and could perhaps, shorten action timers. And I'm just mentioning a few ideas, but you could even expand it further. Sheathing would be great! And by the way, I'm not suggesting that this be added ASAP. Its a cool idea, but I am sure there are other things that will be prioritized. This would just be a cool little perk sometime down the road with this game. So, Wurmians, what do you think? Should weapon sheathing be a thing? Post what you think below!

sword sheaths and guiges and for axes and mauls maybe something like this? i would suggest they would work like 1-slot toolbelts and containers at the same time but just for the weapon or shield it is meant for. the guige would have to be attached to the shield its used for aswell. all items would be leatherworking and possibly golden gemstone-encrusted scabbards for swords made by the jewelry smiths. secondly i want to suggest a one-handed spear weapon that only lets you equip a shield in the left hand, no idea how that would work with the coding just would love to see it if possible
