2 Handed weapon clarification please. (in General)

The Wiki says:

"2-handed weapons are generally more damaging, but when used with a shield and/or bow the minion will suffer additional DX penalties."


I know about using a 2 handed weapon with a shield giving dex penalties, but where did the author of this particular part get the idea that a equipping a bow with a 2 hander gives dex penalties? Should it? Because I'm seeing no such dex penalty on my char and I never have on other chars before.

the archery change did away with that i believe

Look up any shield. The info at the bottom lists penalties based on shields, handedness, & choice of ranged weapon. If it's inaccurate, it needs to be changed in a number of places.

from the changelog "Removed dx penalty for shield + ranged weapon" doesn't say anything about a weapon and bows though.
thats one problem with a user edited wiki not all info may be 100% correct

Like I said, I can't recall there ever being a penalty for equipping a bow and a two hander. And if there is supposed to be one I'm not seeing it. I'm going to assume the Wiki is incorrect at that point and make an edit. Easy enough to change back if my assumption is incorrect.

The wiki is incorrect, I was planning to do a general update today or tomorrow of all those penalties, as well as a host of other issues.
