Because for me, it's a one way trip to getting my *** kicked.
I know there are those out there that are succeding with Dual Wield, so do you have any tips for those of us that aren't as proficent with it? I noticed if I'm fighting basic wolves or something similar I can handle them easily, but when fighting tougher enemies like enemies with 2 handed weapons, I just don't stand a chance. They just hack me apart and I can't block anything, so I'm basically just a practice dummy.
I'm assuming that the most efficent way is with a small weapon in the off hand to reduce stamina costs.. is that accurate? I can't really seem to figure out a good method for fighting dual wield aside from hitting left and right trigger as fast as I can and hoping the guy dies before I run out of stamina. I use a shield and I'm a killing machine, but I was excited about the dual wield mechanic in this game. It's certainly not make or break, I love the game either way, just wanted to see what others thought.
What do you guys think? Is dual wield worth the trade off of not being able to block?
