View Full Forums : HWL 1handers vs 2handers..

12-26-2006, 07:32 AM
Does anyone else find it annoying that the HWL 1hander caster weapons are as good, or better than the two hander variations? I thought one of the high points of getting a 2hander was that it should, in general, have a greater stat set then a 1hander of the same iLvl. Yet looking over the HWL weapons, you're stupid to take the 2handers over the 1 hander + offhand / shield for the casting classes. The mace has much higher healing than it's 2handed counterpart, which you can beef up even more with an offhand healing book, the damage dagger, has 1 more damage than the 2 hander, add in an offhand and it easily outclasses the HWL stave.

I wish they'd just beef it up a little to be more in line with what it should be. :(

Rant off.

The staff is so pretty though... :(

But yeah, I agree, there's just no comparison really

2 handers leave a lot to be desired if you are wanting a Balance or Resto weapon. For either spec you are better off going with a 1 hand mace/dagger and off hand Tome.
