Two Weapon Fighting


Two Weapon Fighting reduces the to-hit penalty when using two weapons at the same time. The penalty for your primary hand lessens by 2 and the one for your off-hand lessens by 6, so it becomes -4 (main hand) / -4 (off-hand) (instead of -6/-10 without this feat).

If the off-hand weapon is light, the penalties both decrease by another 2 points, down to -2/-2 (instead of -4/-8 without this feat). For wielders of non-light weapons, Oversized Two Weapon Fighting is recommended to bring their attack penalty down to -2/-2.

After Update 5, an off-hand attack would have a chance to proc on any main hand attack now, instead of being predetermined on certain attacks. The default chance to proc an off-hand attack is 20%.

Two Weapon Fighting increases the chance to proc an off-hand attack by 20%, bringing the total chance to 40%. Having more TWF feats increases the percentage chance of proccing an off-hand attack by 20% per feat, to a max of 80% with Greater Two Weapon Fighting. The first and fourth steps of the Tempest enhancements core abilities can increase the chance by 10% each, as can the Deft Strikes and Meditation of War (in Wind Stance) Shintao enhancements. Double Daggers from the Vistani Knife Fighter enhancements (dual-wielding daggers only) grants a 20% increase. However, there's no benefit of having more than a 100% off-hand strike chance.

This feat also works for Handwraps users.
