Will we be able to use 2handed weapons together with shields

My question centers around the concept of weapons and how you are able to utilize them/ use them with one another. Will I, for example, be able to use a spear and a shield at the same time like how they were used in actual medieval warfare? In every MMO that I've played I have never been able to utilize both 2 handed weapons and shields at the same time even though it's historically acurate to be able to. I hope you can answer my question and take it into consideration ^_^

    If I had to guess my answer to you would be this.
    1 handed spear + shield (YES)
    2 handed spear + shield (NO)
    2 Handed Anything + Shield (NO)

    Unless one of the classes "Fighter + Fighter = Weapons Master" gets a special trait, I don't see that being an option.

    Let me guess you just saw the Shadiversity video

  • Hiya! Looks like some folks above already got you some helpful answers, in terms of the distinctions being based on whether the weapon was categorized as 1H or 2H in-game! You can check out more on where we've discussed some possibilities for weapons (though this is certainly not an exhaustive list) over on the helpful community-run wiki here:

    I'm going to go ahead and close this thread out now, but please don't hesitate to reach back out if there's anything else we can assist you with in the meantime!
