    Could you devm8s take a look at 1h vs 2h mechanism? I think the current system makes dual wielding undesirable.


    Incorrect 2h block ~ 1h user is stunned for 1,5 seconds (or so) without snare component.
    Correct 2h block ~ 1h user is stunned for 3 seconds with snare component.

    The main issue I see with this is that a 2h user can simply render dw useless since the element of surprise is lost between the rounds of stuns. (not to mention that even an incorrect block decreases dual wield damage significantly) Additionally, a 2h user can just amend their block direction after a dual wielder hits them, since they can stun their 1h using enemy briefly, no matter how they block.

    This makes it very very risky to attempt to use dw instead of 2h. Unless your enemy isn't watching, in which case, you might as well use the 2h axe instead.

    It's not as bad for pirate 1h weapons as it is for dw.

    Yes, please have look at it. Dual wield should get an extra treatment.

    Will Turner: You didn't beat me. You ignored the rules of engagement. In a fair fight, I'd kill you.
    Jack Sparrow: That's not much incentive for me to fight fair, then, is it?

    Woohoo! icon_yay.gif

    This new release is definitely going in the right direction. Grats for the devs! smile.gif

    Haven't really looked at the dual wield issue mentioned here earlier. As I tend to use dual wield only against bowmen or give a nice back massage to someone unsuspecting, so I can't really comment on the issue at the moment.

    Havent played PVK2 in a long time. I hope you guys didnt do the same thing to this as those idiots at AoC - they ruined the game.

    (Although this mod rocks so hard, the only way to ruin it is to delete the file. It just rocks.)
