1h vs 2h weapons suggestions and discussion.


Good time of day.

Currently the difference between 1h and 2h weapons are base damage and attack/cast speed, which isn't really acceptable, since you can literally have twice the amount of affixes and sockets while dual-wielding.

The obvious solution would be to double the bonuses and amount of sockets on 2h weapons, but I assume there is a reason why it haven't been done that way. So, I'd like to hear opinions of players who played with both 1h and 2h weapons and anything from devs too, since this problem wasn't mentioned in any of the blog posts.

I'll reply then, balancing is still a work in progress and it will be improved in the future :) Of course, 1h and 2h weapons are not meant to have the exact same amount of affixes, gems, attack speed, or damage.

They shouldn't have the exact same as those, however, the OP has a point.... If I can get 4 affixes on two weapons and socket them with damage increasing gems...combined with faster attack speeds, there's no way a 2H would be able to even compete with damage output.

Also.. is there a way to post screenshots?

If your a Skiller 2hand weapon is better. but if you like normal attack 1hand weapon is the better, especially the attack speed with a shield, but if double sword or dual 1hand is acceptable to equip here that is the best.

I wish that dual weapon is really could be equiped, most of the time if it is possible the lefthand equiped doesn't give the full status.

If the critical damage is based by Agi or dex, try it. coz doesnt matter what kind of weapon you wield even there has no melee % damage coz its more expensive. if the damage is based by stats you could wield pure vit or HP weapon dagger because of attack speed. you'll get almost the same of your critical damage at the same time you'll be like a tanker also.
