Dual wielding

Any chance this will ever be in the game? I love playing dual wielding characters in RPGs.

Don't think so...

Geralt's trademarks are his 2 two-handed swords for monster slaying :P

It might exist, but from what I understand, it would kinda contradicts the whole lore of The Witcher. Witcher Steel Swords, and Witcher Silver swords are always specifically 2 handed swords.

It might be "fun," and all, but I'd say it branches off more into Just Goofing Off territory.

I can see it done right, but I hope they don't just for the sake of appealing to people like you.

I hope not, i don't want Geralt to end up like Anakin.

Omg... imagine a double-bladed sword. Steel on one end, silver on the other...

People would cancel their pre-order so quickly...

dual wielding wouldnt make sense since this game is a medieval game, the only time dual wielding combat was ever prominent was in childrens fantasy books, have you ever known any powerfull armies having large ranks of dual wielding warriors jumping around like prancing girls?

dual wielding just isent a serious fighting style and would bring down the realism of this game and make it look courney, like how it has done to star wars

As far as i know, DW, is not what the witcher does, you could have a finisher animation where he uses his other sword, but that should be about it.

Second, DW has been shown in books of many fencing schools Books, Lets take notice that there are not many books of this kind.

Second no army could train a Solider for 8 years so he can learn to use 2 weapons at the same time.

its far esier to train them to use a mace and shield.

As far as dueling, DW, Sword and dagger, is common, DW 2 large weapons, is hard , you dont block ever, you parry and conterstrike in the same motion.
Thats my expirience from 6 years of kendo practice.

TW1 had a duel wielding move that you could make, but you had to specialize very far to get it

In the first game, you can use Maces and Axes and that was no Witcher's style.


Also, Musashi Miyamoto, a historical figure, is well-known for his dual-wielding katanas style. He's considered by many as the greatest Samurai in history.

Though, he did use and defeat his greatest rival with only one sword (in fact, it was a wooden stick). If history is accurate.

So, is there a chance to have dualwield? yes. Will we have? probably not.
