View Full Version : Off hand weapon used in an off hand fashion?

Not necessarily a bug, but I spent some trophies to test fighting with an off hand weapon and so far after seven battles it mentioned using it once during combat.

Minor: I just noticed that your trophy count immediately updates after an energy drink, but buying another contract for a trophy does not. It does subtract the trophy though, as reflected when the UI screen changes.

Perhaps an example of a possible issue... maybe?
Two attacks in a round, both the axe, the off hand weapon is a mace. The "bash" sure sounds like a mace attack.

Ah, got the mace mentioned again, seems like a uniquely handled case (switch()?)

Hey, wouldn't it be fun if head ripping for collection added a trophy?

LOL! It must have been from a previous battle, heh.

I'm not positive on this, but I think if both your main and off-hand weapons are of the same style (slash, lunge, bash) AND the same speed, you'll attack more with the off-hand weapon. I noticed an increase in off-hand attacks with one of my gladiators when I switched his shield to an off-hand gladius (same as his main hand). Could be luck, but I'll continue to monitor it.
