    Red face Fanatic Weapon Question

    Hello all, I wanted some advice on weapon choice for Fanatic. My end goal is to get into get into both PVE/PVP, but I cannot find anything online about weapons. I've seen some videos and it looks like they're using a dagger?

    PS- Also any gear info would be great too!

    thanks!

    This is what I intend to use upon launch for Fanatic is Mage Leather with scepter katana for the slashing against plate.

    slashing only applies for melee users. For a mage your offhand should be a dagger.

    Why a dagger as the off hand vs shield or something else?

    Doesn't matter as far as weapon type: dagger, sword, katana will all give the same result. Shield does not give dual wield bonus and is not recommended for a dps mage.

    I think the reason most people use dagger is because of the old obsidian t7 dagger. But, like I said, if you get a magic rolled 1h hiram weapon that can be used in off-hand, it'll do the same thing a dagger does.

    Hello,

    Offhand weapon doesn't matter, it can be a dagger or whatever (other than a shield) to give you the dual-wield bonus. With the leveling gear, you can roll your leveling gear into the stats you'd like. The increased attack speed helps us to get those mana bolts out quicker. As for gear, cloth or plate. I prefer cloth, but I do notice the damage I take vs. melee and archers (ouch). I've used plate in arena a few times, and it's great vs the classes I mentioned, however, does come with a pushback on your spells. You'll have to find your own happy medium.

    Cheers!
