Hello - I guess I have some confusion on the bastard sword. I have seen several posts where I have gleened a little information here and there, but I was hoping to get some specific and concrete answers if possible.
I checked both the DDO Compendium and the DDO Wiki, but when checking the bastard sword in those places it simply states the normal stuff like base damage, critical damage, etc.
Yet in the forums I often see people referring to how the bastard sword (and for that matter the dwarven axe) act like a two handed weapon - even when used one handed with a shield - in that they have a chance for glancing blows.
I believe it, but is there any "official" game play rule where this is stated?
Is it exactly the same chance and damage percentage as regular two handed weapons?
What happens if you use a bastard sword without a shield?
How do the two handed weapon feats/enhancements affect a bastard sword?
Thanks for any replies!
