Dual-wield and Sole-wield

Post by MrT2G » Thu Jun 12, 2014 8:38 pm

Is it possible to learn either of these skills simply by using a weapon in only one hand or both?

You can raise sole-wield by using a weapon in just one hand.

What do these actually /do/?

Weapon skill is hitting, I imagine.

Deflect is dodging.

What does sole/dual do mechanically? A factor in both hitting/dodging?

I'm not sure if this is a main factor in the use of Sole and Dual-wield in itself, but a person who has knowledge, higher knowledge than others, of both skills will fight much, much more efficiently than those with only knowledge of one.

So someone fighting with a sword and shield or two swords (dual-wield) with talented Sole-wield in addition to their Adroit Dual-wield against someone with familiar sole-wield wielding one sword, in a single hand or gripped in both, will fight more effectively against that person, not just because of their higher main style, but even moreso because they know that person's -own- style better.

In addition, a person with that familiar Sole-wield but Master Dual-wield fighting that same person with a single weapon might fare much better.
