The second 'sword' appears to be the animation from some sort of slashing attack performed in an arc. He has no hilt in his second hand and the 'blade' doesn't reach all the way down to his hand. Its pretty obviously a great kanata in his first hand too so they'd need to add some sort of Monkey Grip to make that possible.

It's Tachi:Gekko, there is no second sword.



That would be awesome though Smiley: glare

It's obvious they are trying to get us to speculate that crap though, the positioning is just a little too good to be coincidental...

i couldn't see the picture but i'm guessing it showed maybe a "sheath" for the great katana? (which could maybe double as a 2nd weapon! can block an attack or stun some one with it! and you would just equip it as a grip!)

They gave the ability to dual wield 2handers in wow. I find SE to be relatively decent when it comes to originality. (obviously they can't be 100% original.. the nature of the game), but I don't see them ripping that idea off anytime soon!

Last time I dual wielded on SAM, I used two Warp Cudgels to kill the ASA skele NM in Zitah since I couldn't remember who the heck I loaned my Honebami to and those f*)@*%ckers don't show up on the AH very often.

Anyway. As far as I can tell, this is the first and last time dual wielding has been useful on my SAM. Dual wielding a GKT would be awesome but would probably require at least one willing Taru, a role or two of duct tape, and a Synergy Furnace in order to make it work properly.

lol at claiming both games as original since both the Blizzard and FF series have regurgitated the same abilities throughout all their games, which originated in other games.

I don't expect them to introduce dual wielding two handed weapons just because the delay is already so long. Maybe they'll introduce more grips that are weapon specific, a hilt definitely would be cool, but meh PS limitations or whatever scape goat their claiming.
