    Hello everyone,
    I started playing the dwarf as second toon (first is Ranger) and I do like the skill tree setup of both. For the ranger I only use 2H weapons for obvious reasons (for a lot of solo runs) and max damage output. However for the dwarf I still use 1H weapon cuz I can add more gems to the second weapon slot. I do see that the damage is a bit lower compared to the 2H weapon. I think that when I reach level 100 I will switch over to the 2H weapon. Is there any pro dwarf player that can do any recommendations for the 2H weapon build? Thanks in advance....

    Mortis ring + Destruktor torso full of speed attack gems but don't switch 2H to have 4 att. speed, it's worst cleaning. So much op dwarves use djing unique in 1h build for fun (if you haven't anniversary weapon) and even you can use 2 balor ring at the begin. Specify build suggestion will depend on your tier gems and stats. It's my opinion.

    You're gonna have a tough time playing 2h at the early stage and the amount of effort needed to pull it off isn't worth it. While at the lower levels you can definitely use 2 handed and I would encourage you to do so. However when you reach lvl100 and actually have to start clearing higher difficulties by yourself it would be wise to stay 1 handed for a while until you get your overall stats up (gems, wisdom, and of course gear). Also, crit will be a much bigger concern before you have to start worrying about the damage stat ^^

    To summarize, 2 hand is viable at lower levels and very much so. At early stages of lvl100 use 1 handed for more attack speed and survivability. Later when you have sufficient stats its up to you: you could go 2 handed or stay 1 handed, there are some 1h builds that actually have great dmg output as Darkness90 mentioned so mostly up to personal preference.

    And finally, good luck on your adventure! ;)
