  3. Single weapon or Two Weapon styles for my Fighter/ Thief multi?

If single weapon I'd be using Long swords or katanas, if two weapon I'd obviously be using both.

Opinions?

I'd go for dual wielding, as I think will everyone else.

Single weapon for backstabbing, two for fighting. Use scimitars + longswords since the only good Katana is CF, while longswords get several epic choices.

Staff of the Ram is one of the best weapon for backstab, and that's without two handed weapon style.

That staff makes Kensai->Thiefs damn sexy.

I like the idea of swapping between melee weapons and a longbow though. Annoying that you can't do that while dual wielding. Maybe I shouldn't bother with that.

What sort of backstabs can you get with the staff, anyway?

GAME OVER.
Press "R" to try again.

Staff of The Ram+6 does base damage as well as 12 crushing + some other damage roll (can't remember what though)

Now add all the bonus to damage to that you'd get from your kensai levels as well as any equipment you have that boosts damage

Now add the backstab multiplier to that

Congrats, you have just killed anything that isn't immune to backstabs
