I have seen that for some random reason, Lossarnach axes only do 8 damage. First off, the axe is pretty bad with 8 damage for a civilized faction like Gondor, and they aren't even really able to compete with a lot of infantry unless if they have really good throws with the throwing axes. Their gear is below average, being 15 armour points so it doesn't really make sense why they shouldn't just have an axe that does 8.5 damage. Considering Gondor, they are pretty knowledgable in crafts and such so it doesn't make sense why arguably less civilized factions like Rohan have a better battle axe. Corsairs and Lossarnach are pretty equal, both have 15 armour points and can switch from melee to ranged, yet Corsairs have a battleaxe that does 8.5 damage. I just think that the axe should just do 8.5 damage.
Looking forward to hearing your thoughts and opinions!
