Welcome to the Achaea Forums! Please be sure to read the Forum Rules
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.
