I nkow this would be hard to implement but it would rule, to have two longswords and stuff, it could be 2 swords, a sword/dagger or axe/axe etc..
Just a thot
Just a thot
Knights of the Old Republic is a good example... why use one lightsaber when you could use two and own?
One should benefit from that, though shield would surely be MUCH more useful. One of the benefits would be faster rate of attacks (higher attack speed), for one has more control over one's movements when one doesn't have a cumbersome shield in the otherhand slowing his actions. "A buckler" would not make much difference, but a big,heavy hoplite (spelling?) shield would.i would also like some benefit to using a one handed weapon without a sheild
No it would not if it was done properly. Smashing one button to hack and slash with two weapons (with mega-ultra-killing-power-badass style) propably would, but if it was done so that they would give new stricking chances. This would of course require two attack-buttons and thus mouse would require 3-buttons (most have 3 puttoned mouse, if the wheel is included?) or by pressing them both down at the same time character would block. Just suggestions.yes it seems it would degrade the game, im ashamed i posted this
Fighting with two weapons is a little like john woo style pistols: it sure looks cool, but in reality, what's the point? With guns the point may be more shots, but with two melee weapons, what benefit would there be from having a weapon in your off hand rather than a shield?
This is propably true for I have already heard about something like that. Left handed ones were "teached" to use their right hand (and so they became clumsy, good with neither of the hands... or so I have heard )said that lefthandedness and ambidexterity were marks of Satan.
nox said:He can add dual wielding sometime after he adds magic, and other bits of fantasy to the game. For the most part, that's all hollywood and makebelieve. There are very, very few historical sources for any practical martial application of dual weapons.
The ones I know of are -
For a very short period between the heavier rapier and true fencing rapier, post buckler and pre thrusting weapon period there was a time when a dagger was used offhand as a 'fencing dagger' to ward parry ... and end a fight that moved to grappling.
Left hand axe
Apparently the vikings used a left handed axe to hook shields and 'spoil' an enemy's defense, and probably other things. unfortunateyl there are not many texts that survived from the viking era to tell us more about it.
I think, though I have no text to support this, that the wakizashi is intended to deal with grappling, not to be an offhand weapon.
