As the subject says, do you think classes that can equip dual wiled and 2 handed have any problem as having to take one of the two choicces because one will do more dps. For example, in some games happens that you want to use a 2 handed weapon ,that you can equip, but you never do it because you will lose tons of dps. So anybody know any information about that? I know maybe is hard question for that fase of the game but i know we have a nice number of erudites here.

also usually depends man, if your pvping use 2hander for burst, if your standing face to face with mobs then dual wield it up.

might come down to if certain skills tie into say a 2 hander that you really like versus the dual wield skills.

Historically in other mmos, dual wield is better for most pve because it provides more consistent damage, whereas 2-handed weapons deal much higher spike damage, making it better for PvP. If they are balanced correctly they should be equivalent in terms of damage potential. In my experience, dual wielding is usually a better choice because of extra stat buffs.
