    Default Viable 2-hander build?

    Hey everyone, I just started playing again after being gone for 2 years. I have been grinding the forums for any up to date information on any viable 2h builds for any class. So far I have come up empty, could anyone offer any advice on which class or classes I could play that have a solid viable 2h build? Any help would be very appreciated. Thanks


    edit: even if the build is mainly for farming or leveling, as I will be starting a new toon and will not be raiding any time soon.

    Well I appreciate the replies, and it sux that 2 handers arent really used anymore by any dps classes. I always had a thing for the toons that could really dish out some punishment with a huge stick. I may try some of the priests but I was hoping for more of a dps style 2h build, but beggars cant be choosers. Thanks everyone.

    Yep, the only classes which get optimal DPS from 2 handers are Priests and Crusaders - simply because these two classes cannot dual wield. Dual wielding at an equal gear level is always better than using a 2 hander.

    The benefit for Crusaders isnt that great either, thanks to Knights Stance they do nearly as much damage with a 1h weapon as they do with a 2 hander.

    At least we have appearance slots now if you enjoy that look. I must say though that i miss being able to use a 2 hander and excel in dps/class purpose like we could in EQ I.

    Yeah, power cleave was 2H only (and heroic dash required a shield, so there was a single CA for either style.)

    A single CA isn't going to make a 2H useful, no matter how awesome it is. The items themselves have to be as good or better than the alternatives. (And then people while whine that 2H User X only needed half as many rare drops as Dual Wielder Y to get his DPS optimized.)
