Duel-wield vs Two-handed

Post by BossQQ on Tue Jan 21, 2014 8:29 pm

I have never used due-wield in runescape before...
But i will soon have dual-wield chaotic claws Smile

So my question is about the attack rotation.
With a two-hander i just spam abilitys when they run off and i rly dont ever use the auto attack animation.

But with two wepons equiped i can imagen i wana wait for auto hit animation before i use a ability?

So my question! Do you make a difrent how you spam you abilitys when you use two hander or duel-wield?

When I dual-wield, I use momentum; when I use a 2H Weapon, I simply use abilities; with a shield, I wait for the beginning of the auto-attack animation then I use an ability.

I guess the only difference is the type of thresholds and ultimates you have access to when you dual-wield. Destroy is an over-powrered threshold. Razz

But if you use momentum you can't use thresholds?

You can use momentum with duel-wielding if you're feeling lazy, however it's far slower than if you just used abilities (spam them, don't wait in between for auto attacks).

I wouldn't wait for auto attacks when using 1h + offhand either, the base damage is just too low.

With 2 handers it's abit debatable as if it's worth waiting for an auto attack in between or not. Personally though I don't think it's worth it whatsoever, unless we're talking about tier 99 weapons from dungeoneering. And obviously you don't ever use momentum with 2 handers with it's current state.

I only find myself using auto attacks if I'm bossing and I premeditivly know there is an ability that I want/need to avoid and don't want to lock myself in position by using an ability or end up wasting it because I have to cancel the animation.

You'll enjoy duel wield by far, it's the strongest melee style right now because like you said*Threshold* is OP.  Very Happy

I was just pointing out one difference, and giving you what I do. There's a good chance what I am doing is highly inefficient but it's what I do. Razz
