Did anyone notice the 1H weapon buff? (in General)

I have not yet read about this but noticed it a bit ago.

Just tested it out.

If you have a missile weapon and a 1H melee weapon you do NOT lose the first melee round switching weapons.

Seems a nice bonus to me.

Yep, it was in one of Jon's opening posts. I did a happy dance and someone else was excited as their BoTh sold almost instantly. lol

IMO a fantastic change.

I noticed when my big ol' BoTH was snatched out of auctions within minutes of the changelog going up...
I was actually contemplating cancelling the auction and holding on to it until my NCB's new encumbrance allowance was big enough for it, it's such a major change - a BoTH buff...

It's a Vorpal Blade buff, too, actually. They've regained some of their value and usefulness.

While we're discussing buffs, encumbrance is actually an Elven gear, Hoe and AoM buff if you balance the NW well, since increasing ST & DX reduces your encumbrance...

In general, I don't think any of these changes are really doom and gloom for tanks, it just alters the way you approach equipping them...
