Weapons That Have Weapon Skill

 

 

Notes & Information

  • When using a shield with Weapon Skill you can go straight from one handing or blocking, into the Skill of your right handed weapon, without having to two-hand it first.
  • Even though Weapon Skill in itself has no FP consumption, the FP cost of your right handed weapon's Skill will be consumed instead.
  • A left handed bare fist also has the same Skill as a shield with Weapon Skill, but curiously, if your right hand is also bare it will result in a left handed parry instead.
  • If you equip a Weapon Skill shield in each hand and use the Skill, it will result in a light shield bash similar to the Shield Strike Skill of the Spiked Shield.

        gonna test this on a multi weapon combo build for quick weapon art switching. I think it genuinely has some potential if you're not condfident at parrying (such as myself)

          When you use weapon skill to cast a weapon art, it looks like it's calculated as if you're two handing the weapon. I tested this with a +6 heavy scimitar with 31 strength and the damage was the same for [shield weapon skill + weapon art] vs [two-hand + weapon art].

            does this affect damage? what I mean is if your strength is 27 or below and you use wolf knight greatsword's weapon art, does it calculate the damage as if it's one handed? I don't have gear that I can test this with.

              I'm sad that there are so few "normal" shields with weapon skill. I like to infuse these with simple because of the FP regen but I suck at parry and love weapon arts.

                Using Farron Greatsword with the Wolf Knight Shield is amazing. No one suspect's the greatshield quick parry.
