Dual is easy in the beginning with low level Titans but after Lvl100 Titans introduce some pretty wicked combos - much faster and deadlier thats where it gets really challenging. But then again it all comes down to preference. If you prefer speed over power, Dual is for you.


I am in New Game + 12, level 270. What I can tell is there is no place for 2H. Why? Because all the titans has incredible health, 2H weapon is not effective anymore. Apart from that, titans all deal with massive damage, each attack takes you 10+ block, your 2H weapons just go wrecked soon after a few block. The only way to survive is parry or dodge(some attack cannot be parried), since you cannot dodge with 2H, the chance to survive is low.

Using 2H probably requires +shield gems.

Truth, 2H is only powerful early in the game, but as you progress you become more and more defenceless. Titans have elemental perks that make blocking useless. Can any 2H pro please tell me how they survive? at level 100 its almost impossible to go 3 fights without using a potion.

Is it worth bothering?
The dual cross combos are very effective if you use them wisely. Save the cross slash for the last to maximize your damage for example after initiating a combo, go L,R,L,U that gives you at 4 combos and 7 hits in total. Don't get greedy and try putting too many in there or your last combo will get blocked. You also have to know the kind of break you have for example if you have a perfect parry break you may be able to sneak in at least 1 other combo making it L,R,L,R,U.

Then again if you find yourself giving a cross slash too early, continue it as another combo initiation for example if your combo ended with U, swipe down for a regular hit and Up again to start a new combo sequence. by this time your break might be over but you will be able to at least sneak in another combo

And yes it IS worth bothering.

Make a set of Shields that you will have an elemental defense for each element. Almost all fights you can determine the opponent's element if any. Switch shields accordingly. It should allow you to block with lesser risk.

Im only Lv124 and I currently have 30 points in shields and in between parries and blocks, i've never exhausted my total shield count yet. Im excited to get to higher levels to see how 2H can fare against the higher level titans.

For now, im not buying that "2H has no place" until I get there and i get squashed hard.

Graaaargh! We failed "A Midnight Snack" too. Was looking forward to maxing that Ariss.

This time there was 26101 participants... Looks like not everyone has enough HP to survive 30 seconds.
