Specifics: A character with this feat reduces the penalties suffered when fighting with two weapons. The normal penalty of -6 to the primary hand and -10 to the off-hand becomes -4 for the primary hand and -8 for the off-hand. The ambidexterity feat further reduces the attack penalty for the second weapon by 4 (to -4/-4). Best results are achieved if the off-hand weapon is light, further reducing the penalty for both the primary and off-hand by 2 (to -2/-2).
- First level rangers receive the dual-wield feat, which is a combination of ambidexterity and two-weapon fighting that does not function while wearing medium or heavy armor.
- A double-sided weapon, such as a two-bladed sword or a dire mace, counts as a light weapon when dealing with the off-hand, allowing it to be wielded with minimal penalties.
Item feat: yes
