k, this confuses me. when buying weapons, it says One-Handed, Two Handed, or Dual Wield. the part that confuses me is that i bought 2 dual-wield weapons, but can't dual-wield them. i tried putting one on the primary, and one on the secondary hand, but it doesn't work. and if Dual-Wield doesn't mean...... dual-wieldable, and you can't do this, then what's the difference between Dual-Wield and Two-Handed?

i thought i read somehwhere that ALL classes can dual-wield. must've been false. anyway, i'm a shadowknight. can they dual-wield? EDIT: yea, i did read that.
Certain weapons are marked as dual wield. Any class can equip dual-wield weapons, since dual-wield weapons are balanced so that two of them are equivalent to a two-hander, using only one is cutting your damage potential in half.

Ive never played a SK, but im pretty sure they can not duel wield.  I believe then and Pallys are the only two fighter classes that can not duel wield.  Also, priest and mage class's can not duel wield either. 

Mostly just scouts will be duel wielding, as all scouts can use duel wield weapons.  As for fighters, only monks, bruisers, zerkers, and guardians can duel wield.

This is reffering to being able to equip ONE duel wield.  IE...a mage can use a duel wield dagger, in one hand.  However, they can not equip two of them.
