Icon Feat Oversized Two Weapon Fighting.png
Oversized Two-Weapon Fighting


When wielding a one handed weapon in your off-hand, you take penalties for fighting with two weapons as if you were wielding a light weapon on your off-hand. Note that this does NOT allow you to treat one handed weapons as light for other purposes (e.g. a Tempest Ranger's ability to use Dexterity bonus for attack and damage with light weapons).

Does not function in animal forms.


This feat was previously recommended for dual wielders of non-light weapons but has been made largely obsolete by changes to the combat system which make a -10 penalty to hit miniscule for all but low level characters.
