Thread: Dual Wield and Damage Types

    Dual Wield and Damage Types

    How does Piercing/Slashing/Crushing damage work when dual wielding? Do you only get the main-hand bonus, or would going axe+katana give you the best of both?

    1st set - sword mainhand, nothing offhand:
    - basic attacks: normal attacks, additional thrust
    - triple slash: normal attacks, additional thrust

    2nd set - sword mainhand, axe offhand:
    - basic attacks: normal attacks, additional thrust, additional bash
    - triple slash: normal attacks, additional thrust

    3rd set - axe mainhand, nothing offhand:
    - basic attacks: normal attacks, additional bash
    - triple slash: normal attacks, additional bash

    4th set - axe mainhand, sword offhand:
    - basic attacks: normal attacks, additional bash, additional thrust
    - triple slash: normal attacks, additional bash

    I tried it out with some more weapon types but no one would want to read all that and I think you can see my point.

    Additional damage comes from:
    a) both weapons when using basic attacks
    b) only the mainhand when using skills

    But lets face it - a) does not matter to any of us anymore because basic attacks do no longer happen between skills but would need to be used instead of a skill (by clicking an enemy or actually using the "melee attack" skill under basic)
    A child of song, a child of rage
    Abandoned in another age
    Now ancient hate and rhymes that bind
    Make paradise a tomb divine
    And demons trapped in beauty’s thrall
    Hunt those who heed the bloodsong’s call.
