A few weeks ago, someone asked about this... The elemental weapon series (AR 32) originally included 3 more weapons - javelin, blunt, and bayonet. These were the weapons used in the veteran stances back then in v2.x, and were not implemented in the drop tables of Fire/Lightning/Ice Gate raids, supposedly because they were "too powerful". (But really, gate weapons generally suck when compared to their serpent or chess counterparts.) I think GE China (the previous one managed by The9) may be the only edition to have these weapons.
The weapons do not have innate particle glows, probably because they were never implemented for the most part and thus not fully finished.
