Dual wielding

#1Geomancer01Posted 3/10/2014 11:23:46 PM
I remember that there was supposed to be some kind of "power stance" you could go into while dual wielding, but there's nothing like that yet, and I just want a shield. Has anyone liked it?

Same. It was my understanding there was actually a point to dual wielding.

I read that the power stance is only possible with two weapons of the same class. Could be misinformation, so try it out? I don't have the game yet : (

Weird, since the swordsman starts out with a scimitar and short sword.

Well, the scimitar is a curved sword and the longsword is a straight sword, so that might explain it. Try the scimitar with a falchion, or longsword with a shortsword

to be able to dual wield you have to met 1.5 or 2x the weapons requirements and some weapons cant be dual wielding together

From what I've heard they need to both be the same base type IE Slash/Slash and then you need str/dex (not sure if its one or both or dependent on the weapon) 1.5x higher than the required to wield the weapons. Thats a rough outline for it and I may have missed something.

that makes sense, I'd go with that.
