    New animation?
    why would you need one? Zombie and Wraith already use 2h weapons in 1hand.

    Thinking back on this, how OP would this have been really? We got a one-handed ESoS (Balizarde) in CiTW . . . would being able to wield an ESoS in your main-hand really have been any more over-powering especially since you'd be stuck with one ED?
    I am one that is more than happy this did not make it to live. This would be way to much.

    I would suggest they make a modified Monkey-grip feat available to all which will only allow you to wield a shield in your off-hand .. I think it would give a nice boost to sword n board.

    balizarde is 2.5[1d8]. eSoS is 2.5[2d6]. balizarde is +7. eSoS is +10. balizarde has hemorrhaging... eSoS has epic slots, hard to say which is worth more since hemorrhaging is quite good, but so is DR bypass ability (where it is needed, DR bypass is significantly better, but hemorrhaging works on far more enemies). balizarde does also have some nifty defensive abilities, but those don't add to DPS, so that really doesn't enter into the DPS race. nice for slot consolidation, no question, but... it isn't more damage.

    the eSoS would be just flat out better if it was 1-handed. before crits, it's already dealing 2.25 damage more per hit, and it has more to multiply on a crit so it gains a bit more there, i'm just too lazy to figure out how much. if it's something that has DR to break, (most likely DR to slot for in eSoS is good, and use artificer or scrolls for second type as needed), the eSoS pulls really far ahead. if it's an enemy that doesn't bleed, the eSoS pulls way ahead too.

    frankly... no. no you don't have a 1-handed version of the eSoS. you have a very nice 1-hander, i won't argue that. but an eSoS held in one hand would definitely be better.

    You can't arti scroll a 2H weapon, just like you can't master's touch scroll a 2H weapon. Just FYI.
