I started out with one handed weapons and dual wielded the Skyforge War Axe for a while, and still do. But I use dual wield fire storm magic a lot these days. The good thing about it is that it staggers the opponent enough to shoot another time. This way you can kill then and keep them at a distance. Down side is your Magica runs out pretty fast just a few shots (think I'm at 6 now). It does not work for all enemies, but I have a dual wield Lightning storm as well and can always use my 2 Skyforge axes I enchanted with 12 fire damage and I have an Dwarven Axe with 12 Freezing damage. which I ca dual wield as well. No need for a shield so far ;) Starting to figure out what items I wanna enchant as well, got some nice boots that give me 30 points more I can carry and some other stuff I might wanna use.
