Thanks sooo much for the answer and reply!

I posted in Fighter as it seemed the most logical to me. And my main is a Guardian that has been using sword/board and (if I remember from earlier) this was her only option??) I am about to re-do her skill 'tree' and if I go DW then I do not need to put any points into Shield.

Thanks again for the info!!

Both Warriors and both Brawlers can DW. You don't need to put points anywhere to do so. There are some AAs (correct me if I'm wrong, I don't have a Warrior) that still require a shield to use for Warriors. Besides those 4 fighters, all scouts can DW as well.

But Brawlers can't dual wield blades. They can only dual wield crushing and fist weapons. The same is true for Beastlords, but they can also dual wield piercing weapons, but still no slasing weapons.

He exactly asked for dual wielding blades and Brawlers and the Beastlord can't do that.

The question about Sword and board for Guardian. Most play a Guard with sword and bord in groups but for solo play (or easy dungeons) you can dual wield two blades. There are only very few skills left that require you to have a shield equiped.

Technically you would have to define what your version of a blade is as technically it cant mean "slashing" damage as Claws of JoJo and Monk Mythical for instance are slashing for brawlers.
