    Sure you can, in order to dual wield you would need to equip 2 swords/daggers etc..

    You would be gimping yourself but you can absolutely run around with just one 1-handed weapon.

    I meant you can't not be seriously gimped and just use one 1h weapon, dual wield is a whole 'nother kettle of jellyfish. (not sure I worded that right...)

    I always imagine the guy using the pike as a very large guy with "tiny" as his nickname. I mean... pretty obvious overcompensation issue there :)

    A scythe would be awesome but when was the last time they added a new weapon?

    Cool. But I'm sure with all dungeons after the base game only a few will actually complete it or not dread it when it pops with the group finder.

    First couple of weeks after new DLC dungeons come out is your best bet to enjoy them. After that you'll get a mix of those who know all the tricks and want to speed run it and the regular folk.

    I'm not sure adding yet another four player dungeon to the game is the right way to go. It's certainly nice to have more content. But ever since launch (after the adventure zone experiment) it feels like every addition has largely just been more of the same.

    ESO Questing is great, and their dungeons are great. But you're bombarded with so much of both of those activities in the game it perhaps becomes stale. I say this cautiously - as I love group PvE content, and the MMO genre as a whole is starved of it these days - but I feel the game is proving you really can have too much of a good thing.

    If variety is the spice of life, ESO is becoming a little bland.

    Their team seems to be quite adept at cranking out new dungeons with raid-like mechanics and positioning tricks. It's why they do it once or twice a year.

    I generally agree with your take though in that the new zones added, even the chapter ones, are more of the same.

    What ESO PvE has always lacked IMO, is more unpredictable (as far as location and timing goes) dynamic events. IDK much about their plans for this coming chapter but I hope the dynamic events in the new zone will be more like those in Rift or even GW2 than the static and predictable dark anchors... the game definitely needs some new ways to PvE.

    Bardiche, bec de corbin, pike, lance, spear, scythe, voulge, glaive, halberd, poleaxe, spetum

    All remind me of diablo 2 . . .wish path of exile had more base weapons with nostalgic d2 names.

    Yes and then the game developers can add in formation combat as that's the only way most of these weapon choices would make a lick of sense.

    "You have kept me at your beck and call for fifteen years. I shall never again do what you demand of me. By every rule of single combat, from this moment your life belongs to me. Is that not correct? Then I shall simply declare you dead. In all of your dealings with me, you'll do me the courtesy to conduct yourself as a dead man. I have submitted to your notions of honor long enough. You will now submit to mine."

    Or be the healer and hear them complain when they run ahead and die.

    Natural consequences ;)
