Type of Feat: General
Required For: Improved Two-Weapon Fighting
Specifics: A character with this feat reduces the penalties suffered when fighting with two weapons. The normal penalty of âˆ’6 to the primary hand and âˆ’10 to the off-hand becomes âˆ’4 for the primary hand and âˆ’8 for the off-hand. The Ambidexterity feat further reduces the attack penalty for the second weapon by 4 (to âˆ’4/âˆ’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 âˆ’2/âˆ’2).
- First level Rangers receive the Dual-wield feat, which is a combination of the Ambidexterity and Two-Weapon Fighting feats, but it doesn't work while wearing medium or heavy armor.
- A Double ended 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 the minimal penalties.
Item feat: Yes
