Have one crushing weapon and one slashing weapon. That will keep your skills up in both. I've also heard rumor that some mobs are more resistant to one type of damage then the other (but have yet to see someone prove it statistically).If you're the tank, use a shield + 1H for the defensive abilities.If you're a damage dealer, use a 2H for damage (unless you have a really uber 1H, but be careful because our bash includes a taunt component).Just be glad we only have 2 combat skills (crushing and slashing), in EQ1 I think we had 5 and I used to carry around a bag full of weapons (boy, was that *heavy*).

<DIV>1H Slashing, 2H Slashing, 1H crushing, 2H crushing, Piercing.......</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I had some one-handed sword, a Dark Reaver, a Mace of Shadowed Souls (which needs aheritage quest, by the way), some big hammer, and a nice spear taken from Velious.  I wasn't very high level, but I had a bunch of weapons to play with.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I like it much better here.  all I have to do is raise crushing and slashing, and it takes care of both 1H and 2H.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>As for what you should use, there are some quests that give decent weapons at your level range.  I ended up buying an iron broadsword, though, which I'll sell when I ding 19 or 20 and can use the quest weapon.  Just do a bunch of quests, and you're bound to get some decent armor and maybe a cutter or slicer.</DIV>

<DIV>For 1-hand:</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I love my Iron Scimitar bought from a merchant....at 1.3 speed my Blessed Weapon spell hits a lot more often and my Orc Master's rage is brutal.</DIV>

<DIV>I want a big [Removed for Content] hammer like the one Arthas and Uther have in WC3 those are cool as hell.</DIV>

<DIV>I keep my SK 1h sword on me at all times and Skullcrusher(Fallen Gate quest item) 1h hammer and a sheild with me at all times.  I do not know if it makes a difference on mobs but I like to use the hammer on skells just in case.</DIV>

<DIV>Anyone have suggestions for a good two-hander in the mid-20s range? Quested or crafted are both fine.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV>

Look for the carbonite weapons (made by crafters). The non-pristine ones are good up until level 26/28 before they max out, the pristine don't max out till level 30.I picked up a carbonite war hammer last night (non-pristine) for use from 21-24.
