It really sucks to have to stand in the middle of a bear to hit it with daggers

    Like, in his belly. You can't hit him in the face.

    Makes one really question using daggers.

    Or swords for that matter. Same thing happens, unfortunately...

    Even if you can hit a bear from in front of it's body, it will still constantly try to stand on top of you to keep you in it's own melee range.

    Lets not discuss the shortcomings of daggers, short swords or long swords please.

    Doing so makes me wonder what I was thinking when i went swords.

    If you've ever used long-swords then u know how close u have to be.\
    Daggers are even shorter range than long-swords, and always have been (makes sense if u think on it).
    As intended........

    B.S. I'm literally IN THE MIDDLE OF THE BEAR!

    If I stand in his head, I'm still too far away to even swing on auto attack.

    From the opposite perspective of melee range, as an archer I'm typically nowhere near the visual distance for something like a Wyvern or Dragon tail swipe but i get hit anyways.

    You can hit bears without standing inside of them, while using daggers? I really don't want to have to do a screenshot to prove it, but I will if I have to. Auto attack doesn't trigger until you are inside the bear.

    Biggest knock on blades is the range. Main reason why blades is by far my best tree in PVE but polearms (and ranged but this is another PVP OP discussion) - which I have 10% the xp in - does much better, especially when given issues with desync and crazy fast players.

    Polearms has an innate for more range... give blades more range, just not as much as polearms and no range innate. I might use in PVP again. @Chris o_O

    I tried to create a character that was about dual-wielding daggers. I ended up giving up on that, and switching to 2-handed blades... and the difference was like night and day. Short blades could really use some love.

    It'd be nice if specializing in something like l.blades would make additional glyphs available, or enable certain features like auto-poisoning short blades. There is a back-stabbing skill, but it's so blah. There's nothing available to make this an interesting career path.

    2 notable advantages of dual daggers is a more powerful parry than any other weapon and the ability to hit harder with poison and apply them alot more often.

    Syncs very well with light armor specialization but not with chaotic feedback due to the huge focus cost of double slash and quad slash.

    The biggest downside of dual daggers is the smaller damage individual hits are absorbed more by armor than bludgeon bows or pole arms are.

    That's worth investigating.
