Weapons are the tools of destruction used to dispatch the unfortunate enemies that cross your path. All weapons go into the weapon slots in your inventory. You can equip any weapon type right away. You can equip one two-handed weapon or two one-handed weapons at a time. You can mix different one-handed weapon types. Equipping weapons enables the use of Skills from their respective skill trees.
Bows and Crossbows occupy only one hand, but require other hand being occupied by Ammo to be used.
Shields can also be considered as one-handed weapons. See Shields page for a list of Shields.
Some Tools can also be used as melee weapons.
