Would it be better to use a 2 hander that has 79dps and has 112 str or to dual wield 1 handers that have 46dps and 116 str each? Thanks

Pretty sure the 2 hander would give you more damage.

I dual wield. if spec'd properly, it will do more DPS than a 2 hand or sword/ shield.

I use 1 legendary weapon and a shield because it's more efficient damage wise right now. Plus I like the look of having a shield.

What happened to Barbarians being able to dual wield 2 handers? Did they take that away?

i think that's what the mighty weapons are supposed to be, they are pretty large.

I use 2h's because I love BIG damage numbers over small, quicker damage.

Plus, nothing beats one shotting a huge host of mobs.

The attack damage value is only counted on the primary. This makes wielding a weapon in the offhand kinda useless. Shields work better because you get the defensive stats and can stack strength and vitality on them.
