Swords all the way, man.

Also: You can multigrasp weapons in the new version?! Ohmigosh, how?

Find a 2h weapon (Lets say a iron 2h sword)

Equip 2h weapon

Drop whatever you have in your other hand

Your 2h weapon should now say (multigrasped) instead of left/right hand.

So you can now use a shield to block, then when you get close, drop your shield and hack away with a 2h weapon!

I've seen multigrasp before in the last version, human pikemen being the most common example.

However, from what I understand there is no bonus at all for doing this and you're better off using a shield with a 2-h sword. Or there is no penalty for using a two handed weapon with one hand.

Unless somebody can demonstrate otherwise, preferably with !!science!!. Could probably be settled in Arena Mode.

When I was reorganizing my inventory to fit all by books on life and death into various bags and things, I looked at my inventory and saw that I was multigrasping a necromancer slab.  It was pretty hilarious.

I think that would be an excellent way to impart the critical lessons of life and death to the ignorant masses.

The Pick.  Above all other options.  Armor fails against it.  Limbs get severed.  Things die in droves.

*EDIT*  I correct myself, bolts and arrows are just as good, and plentiful for melee use.

i'm putting my vote in the iron longsword basket... it goes through limbs like butter and doesn't get stuck like the bigger, but more powerful iron two handed sword. Great axes are nice too, but they also tend to get stuck in the body.

Long swords. Even a copper one works extremely well.

edit: Awesome, just found out how to dual wield and have a shield at the same time. Pickaxes are extremely handy secondaries.

If you have a pickaxe, you don't really need anything else.

First a question. How can A person get a Human gut?

Second my fav weapon is a shortsword. The reason I can duel with shiel to get up close and drop it(shield) to disarm opponent. For some reason it seems to be more effective than daggers for my current hero at any rate. That said this is also a !FUN! way of playing. Ps the versatility of a sword is why I use it since I can stab to stop them from moving or chop to cut off the easier limbs. Although I admit it is not the best weapon in terms of stat.

I've seen multigrasp before in the last version, human pikemen being the most common example.

However, from what I understand there is no bonus at all for doing this and you're better off using a shield with a 2-h sword. Or there is no penalty for using a two handed weapon with one hand.

Unless somebody can demonstrate otherwise, preferably with !!science!!. Could probably be settled in Arena Mode.
Toady One himself told long time ago that if a weapon is big enough for you to multigrasp, holding it in one hand reduces your chance to hit twice. There should be an old "attack formula" thread of mine where I quote him on that.
