Trying to figure out if there are any builds that will use 2H swords for their high end rift builds. It feels like the answer is no based on my research as most class which would use a 2H weapon have a class specific one they should be using. I ask mostly for mogging purposes. I know this game isn't about playing dress up, but it's a part I enjoy a lot.
Necro, I think he/she was talking about a viable build that uses 2 handers as their main weapon for efficiency, pretty much any build that doesn't require an offhand/shield.
Here's 2 Necro Builds you can try with swapping the main for the cube weapon. The Lost Time item is only used for movement increase. The other effect from that item is taken care of due to Bane of the Trapped.
Mostly no. Simply because of the amount of stats you gain from an off-hand. 10% CHC(0% depending on weapon ofc), 18% CDR(10%), 44% AD(24%), in addition to the fact that off-hands also come with a base damage increase, meaning you don't actually lose that much raw damage from the 1H/OH than the 2H.
In regards to Necro builds, I'm sure a few *could* use a well rolled Shadowhook instead of a 1H/OH, but you'd get more out of the 1H/OH than just the Shadowhook.
Thanks for the replies all. In terms of what I am playing, I generally focus on barbs. The necro has seen some time and I've toyed with a crusader before.
Another clarifying point about the 2H weapons, I'm specifically looking to use a 2H sword. Not just any 2H weapon. From what I can tell the 3 2H sword models I tend to try and use can only be mogged to if I'm using a 2H sword as my equipped weapon. I've seen discussion on this and I think it's tied to animation restrictions not the item being a 2H weapon in general.
I've not done enough neco to know if a 2H scythe can be mogged into a 2H sword or not but I know axes, maces, and might weapons have mogging into a sword restrictions placed upon them.
