Dual wielding refers to using a one-handed weapon in both hands. It is intended to be an option halfway between the damage output of two-handed weapons and the defensiveness of a shield and weapon combo.

Mechanics

Whenever the player equips two one-handed weapons of any type, dual wielding grants the following stats:

  • +15% Chance to Block Attack Damage while Dual Wielding
  • 10% more Attack Speed while Dual Wielding
  • 20% more Attack Physical Damage while Dual Wielding

The attack speed bonus is applied multiplicatively with other attack speed modifiers. These bonuses to dual wielding can be increased via passive skills. Weapons do not have to be of the same type to receive dual wielding bonuses.

There are no penalties of any kind to attacks with the player's off-hand weapon. The majority of attack skills in Path of Exile will alternate between equipped weapons for attacks, swinging first with the main hand and then with the off-hand weapon. The resulting attack speed is the average of the two weapons' attack speed, so the total time for a pair of attacks is as if each weapon attacked once.

It is possible to dual-wield wands. However, players cannot wield a wand in one hand and a melee weapon in the other.

Interaction with skills

While dual wielding, when you use an attack skill you will use the skill with your main hand then use it on the off hand, alternating with each use. Whirling BladesWhirling BladesAttack, Movement, Travel, Melee
