Something that would be cool is that different charachters specalize in different weapons so that for example you can start with the bow and you have to use upgrade points in order to get the sword like when you have to use upgrade points to get the bow. And something that should be in the game is sword upgrades such as: Faster swing(Less chance for your attacks to be blocked. this will however decrease your accuracy or maybe range idk). Longer swords(You will have a 20% range bonus for each upgrade assuming there is more than 1, upgrading this will decreace your attack speed by 15%. if you upgrade this to max you can get dual swords).
Other upgrades: Acrobatics(A backwards jump when right clicking with the sword equipped, this will slightly increase your movement speed but decreasing armour and you take a bit more damage.)
(If other weapons are added you can of course spawn with them equipped too)
BTW, soooo hyped about the next update :D. Its going to be awesome!
