    Default Why Doesn't Rogue Have a 2H Option?

    Though I've seen this many times passing though Margle for the IA quest drop-off, I was wondering why Rogues couldn't have a 2H option that looked similar to the ones I'm pointing out in my SS here:

    Shouldn't be hard to add. I'm like a 2h option. Always wanted a rogue that could handle staves and my costume Shard of runes skin.

    Can't see anything in your screenshot. Appears to be two blocks of ice?

    That's not a 2H, but could be 2 1Hs.

    It's probably initially from vanilla WoW where rogues always used 2 one handers. Rift just continued the tradition.

    Tho such decision always caused gearing issue that rogues are historically proven to have less than half the chance than other class to score a weapon. on top of that Rogues are always required to acquire 2 pieces of weapons to fill out their melee slots AND was the only calling that used all 3 weapon slots individually for damage calculation...

    Primalist will start to see the problem with this they will also have lower chance than other non-rogue callings to get a weapon because there's no 1 hand alternative for them... tho any of their melee weapon drop will always fill double the weapon slots...

    Yes they're 2 1Hs. But still agree that rogues and primes should have both weapon types available. I've boa items that could be available.

    Heh, yeah, sorry for the terribad picture, and thanks for posting a clearer one.

    I guess what I kinda wanted to point out is how the 2 weapons the NPC is holding looks more like a set than two of the same 1H. I was just wondering why Trion couldn't have given Rogues to be able to have a 2H equip slot while retaining the impression of two separate 1H weapons, which more so work together set-wise anyway.

    I guess now with Primalist that isn't really an option anymore :c
