DualMod - Dual Wield 2 Handers
Update : Ok I pretty much fixed almost everything so it should work fine now. If on rare case it doesn't work feel free to ask me. I expect it to contain a few bugs since I'm new to modding so anybody trying/using it please provide feedback if you spot any bugs. Also changed back the requirement to strength because its what melee weapons draws damage from. Plus you even get an extra goodie - now you can start the game with dual spears and the needle arc skill ^^.
This is a mini-mod that I made by editing the *.dat files. It basically adds a new arsenal of weapons to Torchlight similar to the existing polearms(staff excluded - if somebody wants them you can request or make it yourself) but this time you can dual wield them in both hands. To differentiate them from the normal ones I have added the "Dual" prefix to them so you don't get confuse(you can always edit out the dual prefix if you hate it).
-2 handers is now sword and can be dual wielded
-"Dual" prefix to differentiate the dual type from normal ones
-New start char - start with dual spears + Level 1 Needle Arc skill and 10/5:str/dex
(P/S: If for any reason you'd like to start with the normal char delete the "%appdata%\runic games\torchlight\mods\DualMod\media\units\players" folder)
-Dropped unidentified duals now show as "A Unidentified Dual" tho it still shows as sword in the equipment foldout
-Damage is similar to polearm's damage so you get a boost which is needed for a character this "fragile"
-Enable drop for mob/boss unique weapon at very very rare rate of 5
Finally managed to get a screenie :
Like always extract the folder to
Please leave your thoughts and suggestion whether you like it or hate it and how I can improve it. Thanks for viewing my little project ^^.
P/S: Actually I made this to make myself look cool then decided to release it.. nothing biggie I'm just a noob file editor thats why I called it a mini-mod(also lame mod description <.<).
