Please give Elves the ability to Dual Wield.

It's pretty simple.

While I understand that double arrow archery is meant to be the trademark thing about the elves, I don't think it's enough. The meta of combat has focused around close to mid-range combat with a lot of strength and will being a big deal. Along with that, giants have received multiple adequate ranged options with alchemy, chain slash, ninja, gold rush (... I guess... imo the splash damage is what keeps it from being a meme skill), and so on that don't depend on waiting long to get good accuracy (or reload in the context of crossbows), somewhat nullifying their downsides. Elves just need something to make them decent in close range. I personally think dual wielding one handed axes or blunt weapons would work, with a high Smash rank giving status effects that can be useful in both close and long range (a.k.a. Stun helps you runaway and charge a projectile and reduced defence and protection is just good). That's pretty much all I wanted to rant about today, so I'm going to go back to homework.

    Aren't Axes and BWs heavier than Swords, though? That's why only Giants can dual-wield them.

    What about dual-wield Wands, or a Sword with a Wand.

    . . . or duel wield tools. Giving a reason to perform the combat upgrades on them.

    I always thought elvs should duel wield daggers. Make a skillset out of it like Lance Combat. Make it elf only. Release new daggers that do real damage .... simple ... easy to implement ... final shot needs to not load anymore and last longer just like final hit. (salt)

    That would first require Daggers to become their own thing. Right now, they're just classified as Swords.
