any comment from the developers? Will Dual wielding be added?

I think that's a really good idea and it would bring more strategic depth smile


Killing shouldn't be the solution for everything!!!

I was updating my source difficulty mod and saw that there were two brand new Abilities right beside the Bow, Crossbow, TwoHanded, SingleHanded, and Shield abilities.

The two new abilities are called Wand and Dual Wielding.

I m fresh in this game and I too regret the absence of dual wielding.

Already for one thing , I have nothing to put on my second hand when playing a backstabbing char. SO one slot is just out. Ive even considered putting a stupid outdated shield with few str erequirement but that doesn't satisfy me. I already have the look n feel of a soldier when playing my 'paladin' char and I would like my rogue to look like 'le ninja of death' as stated by the very rude and obv not very smart kriss in previous posts.

Same can be said about unarmed.So yeah more fighting style is good for game diversity , makes you want to start the game over and over trying different chars. Better longevity better product with not so much effort.

Lots of ppl went with their idea of 'how that might work' , I'm not much for the -hit or -ap, instead I would suggest to get an increase in str/dex requierement. One had to be very precise to fight with two light weapons or incredibly strong to fight with two 'heavier' one. So you could dual wield with weapons that have lower requierement. So you would need 8 or 10 dex to dual wield with two req-6-dex weapons.

Great news.

Hopefully it will be available for only some combinations of weapons, instead of just everything, which would make it better and more balanced.

And hopefully it will be available soon (in 2014) together with a new difficultly level wink

As for the when, so far they have released a big update once every month:
15 Jul
21 Aug
15 Sep
So let's hope for one in the next one or two weeks!

I really don't get it. Why is everyone so hyped about dualwielding? It basically is already in the game. Using dagger+shield you only attack once. Using dagger and nothing else let's you attack two times. The only thing they could change would be to make a second dagger in offhand do the exact same - attack two times. But we already get that from having just one dagger.

Though you could change that one dagger attacks twice and make it attack one time only with a bit higher damage and make 2 daggers do the double attack. (though that would make daggers a must have 2 thing which sucks when you are unlucky and can only find 1 good dagger. Dual-wielding would nerf scoundrels)

Gamers have been indoctrinated that it looks dumb when someone has an empty hand. It just feels like one is "wasting a slot."

They're probably going to keep it as a double attack with one dagger or one attack with each dagger. They'll have to balance it so the stat boost doesn't make dual wielding the obvious choice, probably by increasing your miss chance or giving you a slight damage penalty.

Dual wielding doesn't necessarily have to be about daggers either. Someone could want to dual wield two axes. That's going to be even harder to balance, however. Probably each strike would do 40-45% the damage of normal, so you'd deal 80-90% of normal damage, but you have a higher chance to apply statuses and you get more stats. Larian might just stick with daggers, though, since those already have a double attack anyway.

Haha I actually completely forgot about the statboosts as I play with my mod which completely disables any skill or ability boosts from armor and weapons. And things like critmultiplier already only apply to the weapon you attack with. Tried that by modding a shield to have x2 crit damage and it didn't do anything when attacking with my sword.

Maybe just add offhanddaggers which don't have alot of statboosts and increase dodge chance. Like in reality. (parry dagger, noone would use a normal dagger in the offhand in combat)

I would like to see dual wielding included. I was mildly disappointed when it wasn't in D:OS.
