Main hand and off handFollow

Couple of questions about main hand/off hand.

1) Do you get to pick which is main and which is off? Say I want to be a lefty, can I make my left hand my main hand? Or is it defaulted so right is main and left is off.

2) Is there a real difference between them? Can you equip the same weapons in both hands, or does the stronger (bigger) weapon go in the main and smaller weapons in the off?


I do realize that this is subject to change as Beta progresses, but was just wondering how it works.

From what I understand, at this moment, you're automatically right-handed.

It'd be nice to have this change, but I guess we'll see.

Ah, that sucks.

Now what about the difference? Can you use the same type weapon in both hands? Can only use weaker one in off hand?

Some weapons are restricted to your main hand, and some are free to use in both main and off hands. There are no "off-hand only" weapons.

Is there a penalty for using a weapon in off-hand? Less attack or something?

Incorrect. I've gotten items designated "off-hand" that my paladin could not equip because paladins do not use weapons in their off-hand ever. Weapons are either:

Main hand (right hand)
Off-hand (left hand)
One hand (either)
Two hand (both)


Although alla's site doesn't know what to do with this apparently, it is an "off hand" item:

Those are both off-hand weapons though. You're going to have to punch me with your main.
