UC Weapon. 1H or 2H? (in General)
I don't think I've seen this mentioned anywhere...

do you mean what it is counted as?

if you mean if it is counted as a 1H or 2H weapons.
then i know that it is counted as 1H weapon just tested then.
How did you come by that conclusion? Hmm, maybe there's a way of testing it with Dex penalties from Shields. They differ for 1/2H weapons don't they?

UC is neither of them.
What's it's base Dex chance to hit based on then?

UC is seen as a 1 handed weapon.
It doesn't get a DX penalty in melee rounds when having a shield equipped :)
It also gets the larger of the two bonuses from the BoM ( I had a BoM wearing UC char on cb1)
Wow, Sensei Boopadoo fends off all of those attacks single-handedly. That's some martial arts!
.... Why isn't 'fends' in the spellcheck?

I equipped a shield on my UC tank today and got a 6% dex penalty. Which is the 1H weapon shield penalty....
No, no, no! Shields and UC DO NOT MIX! Wooden, buckler, even a Mage Shield all knock it down from (100) to (94) :P
no one is suggesting it seriously BM, now that the MgS has a dex pen even it isn't work using on a UC char.
I saw It doesn't get a DX penalty in melee rounds when having a shield equipped and for a moment saw hope - a Mage Shield would protect a UC tank from magic attacks!
Then I moved Shamus Jon's MgS onto Sensei Boopadoo, saw the reduction in DX and (94) in the UC slot...
And I was so startled that I swallowed my gum! :)

that's because every Shield gives UC a skill penalty, duh :p

as soon as i posted i got off.
yea i equipped a wooden shield -6% to DX i didnt know it lowered because the UC i used it on was 0

I actually like a MgS on UC. If you wear HG and Gi, I think the -5 penalty is worth it.
Since yesterday, I've been toying with the idea of pushing it up even more just to compensate for adding a MgS after all... :)
And here we thought you would keep pushing it up just because you want to see how high you can get it.
Hey, if you get it high enough you might transform into a cleric and start giving HP your opponents like that one uber-ELB in cb1 did. :-)
Well, long term, yes as high as it can possibly go, until he's so fast opponents will end up striking themselves instead :D
But I was talking short term, as I was going to stop at (100) for a little while to emphasize DX & HP :)
