Spec Question

WorvesWorves Member Posts: 31 ✭✭ - Stalwart
Greetings, I'm interested in potentially moving into combat in the somewhat near future. I've currently just been walking around and killing everything that moves so far. What specs should I be looking at? I've heard the dual blunt is really op at the moment, but I'm really not interested in it. I'm more looking at choosing between dual cutting and sword and shield. 

As it stands, I'm only asking this for combat purposes. I really don't care about grinding out xp, as I can do that gradually over time. I also won't be able to purchase any artifacts anytime soon, likely. I'm currently a Troll and spec'd for strength, so I have 16 strength and 12 con.

    I always vote SnB for knight specs, even though I would probably go dwc.  I never got to play with old knight, so I would want to start there, but I would probably end up SnB after I got frustrated with parry bypassing 

    Dual blunt is pretty op with arties.  Without, I have no clue. I am sure some people can tank it, but even at 14 str with level 3s, Kellonius scared me. 

     SnB is nice having a level 1, since you can beat salve balance, but I don't know how required it is. After level 1, sword levels just mean you can hold a stronger shield without losing speed. Pretty sure it's capped at like 1.9. 

    Dwc, you definitely need to beat salve balance, again no clue what their speed is like, but I heard it was pretty meh without arties. 

    All this is just observation on my part. Don't play a knight and never have.  Surely someone else can answer better.

    Unartied I'd probably go sword and shield, there seems to be a lot less reliance on weapon stats to fit attacks within restoration balance.

    You can always ignore targetting entirely and just go for Pithakhan mana drain as DWC but that's probably going to be rough against opponents with good hindering, especially without the speed of artefact scimitars. Also no guarantee that Pithakhan will remain as strong as it currently is forever.
