When disemboweling, the game only checks your RIGHT HAND for a runeblade. It doesn't check your left hand.

SnB knights, wield your sword in your right hand when you dsb.

2h knights, swap out your bastard for a shortsword and wield it in your right hand.

DWC knights, you're good. Rock on.

That's all.

    Nice to finally know what's causing it. This seems like a bug that should be fixed pretty much immediately, people shouldn't need to do weird shit with wielding weapons to work around it.

    This is interesting. Not in game now to check, but why should I DSB with a shortsword instead of my bastard? I assume because 2H doesn’t register as being wielded in a particular hand? 

    Would it realistically make a difference?

    Also, as Antonius said, this needs to be fixed ASAP.

    Two handed weapons are wielded in both hands, so they don't count as left or right. You don't need a proficiency to impale as far as I know so it doesn't have to be a shortsword. Any one-handed sword that can be turned into a runeblade would work.

    I find it odd that the game uses the right hand weapon for disembowel when it as far as I'm aware it will use your left arm first in every case I know of. Fairly certain the sword in the left hand comes first when dsling.

    In a lot of cases two-handed things seem to be wielded in the left hand. For an easy to see example, they show up in your left hand on II.

    I am torn between just hoping this gets fixed quickly or write a workaround to it that I'll have to delete after.

    Wield shield sword ftw. I’m right handed irl, always seemed practical to me.

    Also I like to think that it is easier to put on a shield without holding a sword than to draw a sword while wielding a shield.

    Thanks for solving this, @Armali. I've apparently been left-wielding since.. the implementation of SnB :/

    Been a while since I bought weapons from a shop, but pretty sure stats aren't taken into account when grouping up on WARES. First one has bonus points on damage and speed, second has a bonus point on to-hit. It didn't get slower because you empowered it.

    Ahhh. Weapons should be sorted by stats :( That's misleading!

    I tested this today and it didn't seem to make any difference. I had exactly the same DSB damage on the same victim with my Bastardsword, and a longsword in both left and right hand.

    The bonus points are pretty irrelevant, and you can't stock artefacts, so it's not really worth it.
