Aggrosaur posted... Lord Bacon posted... IIRC, you can't block while dual wielding but can block with 2 handed weapons, so while a 2 handed weapon would likely have a bit less dps, you would still be able to block.
1 hander + shield = half defense, half offense
1 hander + 1 hander = pure offense, no defense at all
2 hander = 3/5 offense, 2/5 defense. Or something like that. above half offense and less than half defense.
Wrong, dual wield is going to work almost like hand-to-hand in Oblivion, with multiple right trigger pulls alternating left-right-left-right-left-right-left-right. Or perhaps to my utmost joy, it will work much like dual daggers in Dark Messiah of Might and Magic (PC version), which has the absolute best melee combat that exists. You will always be allowed to block.
Except you are completely wrong. Its been long confirmed that right trigger = right hand, left trigger = left hand. When dual wielding, left trigger swings your left weapon, right trigger swings your right weapon. With 2 handed weapons right trigger would swing the sword, left trigger will block.
i cant rememeber a elder scrolls game that had duel weild,, and yes i used a glass claymore and you do get knocked around a lot. so if you use a claymore you must also raise yer block so you can block with yer sword

2-handed weapons also tend to have more reach and much higher durability. In Morrowind they also tended to have slightly higher enchantment potential (a feature vacant from Oblivion, but hopefully making a return with the Enchant skill).
