If you could design an off hand weapon what would you like to see? What sort of object?

-throwing star?

-a rubberband around the off hand?(like a thai box fighter..?)

-a bear claw/wolverine thingy?

-decoration dagger(turned the other way around... so its backwards)?

-grappeling hook?(typical assasin/ninja weapons)


I just dont think that the current off hands weapons fit assasins...

and is daggers enough for assasins? should they have a speciel abillity to use two handed katana swords or something? for a melee class it seems not very varied to make them specialised in one kind of weapons?

The only other melee class is the fighter, who is pretty much only about melee.

The assassin has skills which are not about melee (teleports, hexes etc), similar to rangers having skills not about bows, so only 1 type of weapon seems to match.
You could have other weapons that match the normal spellcaster setup of wand/foci/staff for non-dagger mastery assassins.

personally i think that the off hand weapon with always be what the primary one is because other wise you could have waaay to many mods (4 instead of 2) and for the katana isnt that the samuri not the ninja that weilded that? im not saying that it is not possible just unlikely as many assassin skills deal with having two weapons not one two handed weapon.

If I were to put on an off-hand/focii on my Assassin, I'd just get one from the other professions. I'd try to get one with a skin I like.

For example, the Death Magic Grim Cesta (looks like a gauntlet) or the Protection Prayers Protective Icon (has Dwayna's face).

You can find some with no requirement almost anywhere in the game. And the max Energy they provide for having no requirements is +6, which is okay.

And if you're lucky, you may even find one with a mod or bonus you like or could use. Like, say, +32 health while hexed, or 20-33% reduced Blind duration.

I'm willing to make do.

If I could desing some kind of an off-hand weapon it would be simple: empty hand :thumbsup: cause they already have skills like 'Palm Strike' (if I remember the name correct) and so on.

And I think that they don't need other kind of weapons to use atm. Maybe later, but I would like to see warriors and rangers have new weapon types too :wink:

Abillity to use two handed katana swords Emm.. May I ask why katanas or is it just some kind of an example? :huh: I'm not trying to be rude or anything, I'm just not getting it why two huge swords what are pretty clumsy but devastating when compared to daggers.. For a warrior maybe? :scratch:
